Police Veteran to Head Criminal Justice Training Agency

The deputy commissioner for Kentucky State Police has actually been designated to a new function as commissioner for the Department of Criminal Justice Training. William Alexander Payne’s consultation was revealed Tuesday by Kentucky Justice Secretary John Tilley. The criminal justice training department lies at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond. It offers entry-level and professional-development training for police officers throughout the state.

Payne signs up with the department with more than 30 years of experience in policing, training and operations, consisting of 20 years at KSP. For the previous 2 years, he has actually acted as second-in-command for state cops, managing administrative policy and functional services. Before signing up with KSP, Payne acted as patrol leader and unique operations group leader for Jeffersontown authorities. Payne served with KSP from 1985 to 2004, starting as a cannon fodder.
