KSP Receives New Equipment

(Pikeville, Ky) - Kentucky State Police Post 9 in Pikeville now has another weapon in their arsenal to fight crime in our region. They recently received a new Crime Scene Response Vehicle from Frankfort which is a Ford Super Duty truck equipped with everything they need to survey and assess a crime scene. The CSRV gives detectives a one-stop shop to conduct investigations with greater storage capabilities and state of the art tools to collect evidence at the scene of a crime or traffic fatality. KSP Trooper Shaun Litte explained that this is an invaluable tool for the KSP. Since receiving the CSRV, Trooper Little said it has been dispatched twice to crime scenes.
