The Kentucky State Police has unveiled a new, reorganized website that streamlines commonly used links and adds a new anonymous tip line.
Kentucky State Police have always had a website, but now thanks to some major updates to the site, it is much easier to navigate.
Kentucky State Police Trooper Brandon Priddy said the website is a lot more streamlined. You are able to find a lot of the links on the new website that people use most often. He said the idea behind it was to make it just a little bit more user-friendly.
Kentucky State Police analyzed site statistics gotten from a third-party partner and found their ‘Driver Testing’, ‘Concealed Carry of a Deadly Weapon’, and ‘The Sex Offender Registry’ pages were the most commonly used on the site. They were added front and center to the homepage.
They also added a new anonymous tip line linked to the bottom right corner of the website where tips will be directed to a dispatch center for review. If you are in need of immediate help, please still dial 911.
The tip line requires citizens to fill out the incident location, the time of the incident, and a description of the incident. There is also an option to attach a file under 5MB.
In an attempt to further the transparency between law enforcement and the community, a new ‘Thank A Trooper’ feature is available for citizens to express their appreciation for any officer they feel fit. This feature can be found in the top left-hand corner of the homepage.
