  • KSP arrests man in child exploitation case

    A local man has been charged with possessing child sexual exploitation (CSE) material after Kentucky State Police launched an online investigation.

  • BPD will be outgunned no more

    Bardstown Police have long complained that they didn’t have the right weapons to do their jobs. While the “bad guys” had AK-47s and AR-15s, police had shotguns and handguns.

    Thanks to the generosity of some local gun dealers, though, officers will now be able to match their adversaries in firepower.

    Last Tuesday, Matt Schrader and Josh Geron of Bourbon City Firearms delivered a cache of weapons to the Police Department training room.
