Traffic fatalities have been drastically reduced and drug seizures are on the increase in the district covered by the Kentucky State Police Post 5.
Capt. Dean Hayes, commander of the post in Campbellsburg, says much of the credit for the improved statistics should go to troopers Rick Ellis and Dennis Hedger.
Together, Ellis and Hedger make up the new “criminal patrol” team primarily assigned to the Interstate-71 corridor from Gallatin County to Oldham County.
