Date of release: July 10, 2018
The Paducah Police Department is pleased to report that it received a perfect score of 100 last week on a Kentucky League of Cities review of the department.
KLC Insurance Services (KLCIS) conducts the review, which affects the cost of the city’s insurance through KLC. A reviewer visited the department last week and looked at dozens of criteria, from Accreditation to standardized purchase of duty weapons, and facility security to training standards.
“(The) Paducah PD is an excellent agency with 72 officers,” the report reads. “The agency is KACP Accredited with Chief Barnhill also serving as President. The agency is one of only 15 KLCIS agencies with a perfect score on the safety & liability review. Paducah has maintained a perfect review since 2010 with various consultants conducting the reviews.”
The department’s perfect score, along with the city’s loss history, will determine whether Paducah receives a credit on its insurance at the next renewal.
