Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement Graduates
Six From Law Enforcement Class - 361

RICHMOND, Ky. - Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement (KVE) recently graduated six new officers from the Department of Criminal Justice Training’s Law Enforcement Basic Training Academy. The academy is located on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University.

The 16 week, 660-hour Law Enforcement Basic Training Course is mandatory for all Kentucky law enforcement officers who are required to comply with Peace Officer Professional Standards Act of 1998. The graduating students of Class 361 represent the successful completion of a highly structured, comprehensive curriculum. As a result, each officer is better prepared to meet the ever-increasing demands placed on today's law enforcement officers.

There were several awards handed out to KVE officers including: academic achievement, performance & physical fitness. Also, three officers graduated as recruits of distinction. A graduating recruit is given the "recruit of distinction" honor when he/she has: had no documented disciplinary actions, not failed in any tested area, evaluations are acceptable in every category, has an overall GPA of 95% or higher, participated in a community  project and actively promoted team work within the class environment.

“These officers have dedicated countless hours of training, studying, testing, interviewing and otherwise maintaining the highest standards to take their place as leaders in Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement,” said  KVE Commissioner, Greg Howard. "To have so many awards and distinctions given to our officers, shows exactly why we have one of the premier departments of this nature in the country."
