KSP LOOKS TO FILL 30 TELECOMMUNICATOR POSITIONS AROUND THE STATE (FULL/PART-TIME)

 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (August 13, 2020) - Kentucky State Police (KSP) is seeking to fill 30 full-time and part-time Telecommunicator positions at 14 various post locations across the Commonwealth.

 

KSP Spokesperson Sergeant Josh Lawson says the agency is experiencing an unprecedented level of Telecommunicator vacancies. “It’s concerning for us to face this kind of shortage in one of the more critical areas within our agency”, said Lawson. “Through retirements and attrition the number of Telecommunicators has dropped significantly.”

 

Lawson assures the staffing shortage has not impacted emergency service response times at post level. “We are fortunate to have dedicated personnel who have stepped up and did what is necessary to ensure that there is not a break in service for Kentuckians.”

 

KSP Telecommunicators handle dispatch duties for Kentucky State Troopers, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Officers, Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation Officers and other emergency service agencies. Most important, they are that calming voice on the other line when someone calls 911. Last year, KSP Telecommunicators answered 2.1 million calls resulting in 500,236 requests for assistance.

 

KSP recognizes the importance and significance of the Police Telecommunicator to both trooper and public safety by providing the training and equipment necessary for success, including a five-week paid training academy to become certified with the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council.

 

“It’s a tough job but it’s also a very rewarding job where you can leave work each day knowing you made a difference. Knowing you helped people in their time of need,” adds Lawson. “Each new call is a chance to positively impact someone else’s life.”

 

The next KSP Telecommunicators Academy is set to begin on September 14, 2020 with an expected graduation date of October 16.

 

Requirements to become a KSP Telecommunicator include:

  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Ability to handle extremely stressful and challenging conditions;
  • Handle flexible work schedules, including nights, weekends and holidays;
  • Ability to learn and adapt, especially in areas of technology.
  • Must be a High School Graduate

If you’re interested in a Telecommunicator position with the Kentucky State Police, you may apply at https://careers.ky.gov or contact your local post (https://kentuckystatepolice.org/post-locations/) for more information.

According to Pulaski County Sheriff Greg Speck, three people were arrested by Deputy Zach Mayfield Monday morning, August 10, 2020, at 8:45 AM for Burglary on Porter Creek Road near the intersection of Lanetown Road in western Pulaski County.


Deputy Zach Mayfield and Sergeant Cary York responded to the report of a suspicious vehicle in the Lanetown Road and Porter Creek Road area around 7:58 AM Monday. While on their way to the area, Deputies learned that the victim of a break-in had a pickup truck blocked on the roadway with the victim’s vehicle.


When Deputies arrived, they identified three people in the pickup truck along with items that were identified by the victim as belonging to the victims and that they were stolen from the victim’s garage yesterday morning.


As a result of the investigation, Deputy Zach Mayfield arrested the following individuals:

  • Robert J. Claunch, age 61 of W. Highway 80 in Nancy, Kentucky. He was charged with Burglary, 3rd Degree for illegally breaking into the garage, and stealing items.
  • Brent E. Barton, age 44, also of W. Highway 80 in Nancy, Kentucky. He was charged with Burglary, 3rd Degree for the break-in, and stealing items. Deputies also located a small bag of marijuana on Mr. Barton, so he was charged with Possession of Marijuana. It was also discovered that Mr. Barton had a Pulaski County Circuit Bench Warrant for a Civil Case. He also had a Pulaski County District Court Warrant for Failure to Appear on a Theft by Unlawful Taking charge from 2015. He was charged with these warrants.
  • Gara Renee Bolin, age 39, of Willow Oaks Drive in Nancy, Kentucky. Ms. Bolin was charged with Burglary, 3rd Degree for breaking into the garage, and stealing items.

LIBERTY CITY COUNCIL MEETING REPORT

 

The Liberty City Council met in regular session Monday.

 

The council voted to give power of authorized signature to mayor pro tem Micah Meece, in the absence of Mayor Steven Brown.

 

Also on the agenda was a restructuring of water and sewer rates. Mayor Brown...

 

 

That issue was tabled for further study.

 

The Council approved a 2nd reading to an amendment of the Code Enforcement Board ordinance. The amendment removed a statute  disallowing board members to hold other positions for the city.

 

The Council also approved an amendment to the city's sewer usage ordinance to coincide with state guidelines concerning certain chemicals.

 

There was also a lengthy discussion concerning a street in the Casey Estates subdivision. The issue centers around a 200 foot section that has become an issue, tantamount to a border dispute between neighbors.

DANVILLE MAN TAZED TWICE & CONTINUES TO FIGHT POLICE

 

On August 9th, 2020, at approximately 4:40pm, Danville Police Sergeant Chase Broach observed a vehicle driving on Holiday Drive.  Sergeant Broach observed the operator to be Christopher Lee Harlan, 29, of Danville, who had several active warrants of arrest. 

 

Sergeant Broach attempted to conduct a traffic stop as Harlan pulled into a driveway and quickly exited his vehicle.  Sergeant Broach exited his police car, called Harlan by name and ordered him to stop, advising that he was under arrest for his warrants.  Harlan refused, attempted to flee from Sergeant Broach, but fell to the ground.  Harlan attempted to get up and flee while frantically reaching towards his waistband prompting Sergeant Broach to deploy his Taser.  The Taser was effective, allowing the officer to grab Harlan and attempt to take him into custody, but Harlan continued to resist and a brief struggle ensued, where Harlan was able to escape and flee on foot, breaking free from Sergeant Broach and the Taser barbs. 

 

Sergeant Broach chased Harlan towards Comp Care, located on High Street.  During the foot chase, Sergeant Broach was able to reload another cartridge into his Taser, chasing Harlan into the tree line between Swope Drive and the Comp Care parking lot.  Upon chasing him into the tree line, Sergeant Broach, in another attempt to subdue Harlan, deployed his secondary Taser cartridge.  The Taser was once again effective and with Sergeant Broach believing that Mr. Harlan was compliant, he moved in to attempt to handcuff Harlan.  When doing so, Mr. Harlan, once again, became non-complaint, engaging into another struggle with Sergeant Broach, and was able to take control of Sergeant Broach’s Taser. 

 

Broach disengages from the struggle and deploys his Pepper Spray on to Harlan.  Harlan then stands up, points the Taser at Sergeant Broach, and pulls the trigger, attempting to fire the Taser, then flees again.  The Taser would not be effective at this point due to both cartridges being used. 

 

Sergeant Broach notified back-up units of the confrontation and alerted responding officers that Harlan had his Taser.  More officers arrived on scene, and Harlan was now confronted by Danville Police Officer Keith Addison, who ordered Harlan to stop.  Harlan continued to flee around the East side of the Comp Care building with Officer Addison giving chase.  Harlan turns around, points the weapon at Officer Addison, still refusing to drop the weapon, and with his other hand, begins reaching behind his back towards his waistband. 

 

When confronted by multiple back-up officers, Harlan put the weapon to his side and officers grabbed him to affect an arrest.  Harlan continued to fight with officers and attempt to escape their grasps.  After several minutes of Harlan resisting police, he was finally able to be handcuffed and taken into custody. 

 

Harlan was checked by Boyle County EMS and sustained no injuries.  He was decontaminated by Danville City Fire due to Pepper Spray exposure.  No police officers were injured as a result of Harlan’s actions. 

 

Harlan was taken to the Boyle County Detention Center and charged with the following:

 

Suspect:

Christopher Lee Harlan

Age 29

Nicholasville, Harrodsburg, Danville, Ky.

 

Charges:

1) Operating on Suspended/Revoked License

2) Fleeing/Evading Police 1st degree (on foot)

3) Resisting Arrest

4) Disarming Peace Officer

5) Receiving Stolen Property Under over $500

6) Wanton Endangerment 2nd degree (Police Officer) 2 counts

7) Disorderly Conduct 2nd degree

8) Multiple Warrants of Arrest
