Kentucky Association Leaders

Kentucky Association Leaders

Kentucky’s law enforcement associations play a major role in bringing together law enforcement leaders to positively impact the law enforcement community at large. These associations offer support to members, disseminate information statewide and work to advance the law enforcement profession in the commonwealth. 

KLE magazine will make every attempt to keep this list current throughout the year. However, we welcome input from our reader's if any of the information appears incorrect. Please use the UPDATE buttons below each association's listing to contact us.
