FRANKFORT, Ky. - A new Kentucky State Police vehicle took up residence in the Post 2 area this week.

Post 2 Madisonville commander Captain Ricki Allen received the keys to a new Crime Scene Response Vehicle, or CSRV, from KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer at state police headquarters in Frankfort Tuesday.

The Ford Super Duty truck has everything needed for analyzing a crime scene including a generator and a fingerprint processing machine.

"Positioning these vehicles at all KSP posts will be a valuable asset to KSP as well as an additional resource for local law enforcement," said Brewer. "Combining state and local resources, especially during difficult economic times, will provide the Commonwealth with more efficient and effective crime solving methods that will result in decreased criminal activity in our state."

Brewer said the state police used no public money to buy the new vehicle.  Instead, money from the sale of seized property, like vehicles and jewelry, purchased the CSRV.

KSP Post 2 Madisonville covers Caldwell, Christian, Crittenden, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Todd and Webster Counties.
