  • Lawson talks to Rotary about Trooper Island

    When Kentucky State Police Trooper Josh Lawson entered Bedford Rotary’s meeting room on Aug. 16 — in full uniform including dual weapons — we thought surely we were in trouble.  What law(s) had we violated?  Well, isn’t that the first impression many of us have when confronted by a police officer?  A kind of negative feeling about our police at first blush?
