On Thursday, March 1, 2018, Governor Matt Bevin joined the Kentucky State Police to announce the launch of the Angel Initiative. The Angel Initiative encourages individuals suffering with a substance use disorder to visit a local KSP post for assistance and treatment. Governor Bevin said the initiative is a valuable tool in the fight against the opioid epidemic and the locations of the 16 KSP posts will allow ready access for individuals across the Commonwealth. The program encourages individuals seeking addiction to visit a KSP post, where they will be paired with a local officer who will assist with locating an appropriate treatment program.
