The Ashland Police Department, like other police departments, federal agencies and the nation as a whole had to adjust to the circumstances of September 11, 2001. We entered into a new arena - dealing with terrorism at the local law enforcement level. Our agency has been charged by the Governor with coordinating the Commonwealth's crime prevention and emergency preparedness efforts. Public safety is our top priority, and that is why we are working with the state's Communities, First Responders, and Families to ensure Kentucky is Ready and Prepared.
In conjunction with our department's coordinated efforts with our state and federal counterparts, the Department has committed additional training and equipment to protect Ashland.
We need and solicit our community's assistance as we all think globally and act locally in our collective war on terrorism. Links in this section provide further, detailed information on terrorism topics. Please report any unusual terrorism related matters to our contact list or via email.
