By West Kentucky Star Staff
WESTERN KENTUCKY - The Kentucky State Police in Post 1 is welcoming three new sergeants to supervisory roles.

On March 18, Governor Andy Beshear joined the Kentucky State Police to recognize the promotion of 30 officers at a ceremony held at the KSP Training Academy. 

In September of 2020, Kentucky State Police Post 1 welcomed three new sergeants to its ranks. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 ceremony was postponed. With 'Healthy at Work' guidelines in place, the agency honored the troopers and officers promoted in 2020 with a private in-person ceremony.

The governor congratulated the newly promoted officers at the event.

"I'm honored to be here and excited to see what is in your future," said Gov. Beshear. "We couldn't be in better hands as we confront challenge after challenge. I'm proud of each and every one of you for everything you have done."

In Post 1, the following Troopers were promoted to Sergeant:

• Cory M. Hamby serves as the Detective Sergeant. Hamby has served with the KSP for ten years, all at Post 1. He is a Crittenden County native and lives in McCracken County with his wife and three children.

• Jonathan E. Murphy serves as the West Squad Sergeant. He was previously assigned to Post 2 Madisonville and has served with the KSP for nine years. Murphy is a Muhlenberg County native and still resides there with his wife and three children.

• Michael S. Settle serves as the East Squad Sergeant. He comes to Post 1 after serving with the KSP for 12 years at Post 16 in Henderson. Settle is a Todd County native and resides in Marshall County with his wife and seven children.
