FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Applications are being accepted this month for people who want to become Kentucky State Police troopers.

Current law enforcement officers also may apply for the accelerated program, state police said in a news release.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 28. The upcoming cadet class is scheduled to start Feb. 28.

Starting salary for sworn officers is $61,500 annually, one of the top five in the state, the agency said in a news release.

New troopers will also receive an improved retirement system that includes a sick leave buyback program, said Sgt. Michael Murriell, recruitment branch commander.
