Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle has been appointed to the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council by Governor Matt Bevin.
The Kentucky Law Enforcement Council is a 20-member body, 12 of whom are appointed by the Governor. The Council governs training for all of the state’s law enforcement.
"It looks for ways to increase the quality of law enforcement by improving the curriculum used to train law enforcement officials and monitoring the abilities of the instructors who teach the required curriculum," a statement from the Governor's office said.
Doyle will be a sheriff's representative on the council that also includes two other Kentucky sheriffs, a member of the Kentucky State Bar Association, five chiefs of police, and a non-sworn citizen-at-large.
"It's very humbling to be appointed by Governor Bevin's office for the position," Sheriff Doyle said. "I've always had a great working relationship with the council over my career, so to have the opportunity to serve at a state level is a great honor. I look forward to not only represent Edmonson County on the council, but also our great commonwealth as we work together to make law enforcement training the best it can be in Kentucky."
