4 new troopers headed to Columbia’s Post 15

Kentucky State Police Post 15 in Columbia is welcoming four new troopers following the most recent graduation of the agency’s basic training academy.

New Troopers Timothy Moore and Matthew Lee are from Somerset in neighboring Pulaski County, Trooper Daniel Pierce is from Edmonton in nearby Metcalfe County and Trooper Trey Binder is from Georgetown.

Cadets reported to the KSP training academy back in June for 24-weeks of intense training to learn the job skills necessary to perform the duties of a state trooper.
