FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A former Kentucky State Police officer has been hired as director of the Ranger Division for Kentucky State Parks.

Lisa Rudzinski’s appointment was announced Monday by Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker.

Rudzinski replaces Joe West, who was named director of law enforcement for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Walker says Rudzinski will make a seamless transition into her new job due to her background.

Kentucky State Park rangers provide public safety and law enforcement services at 49 state parks.

Rudzinski, a Bowling Green native, spent more than 21 years with state police before retiring in July.

She began as a trooper and eventually served as post commander at London, Bowling Green and Richmond. She also served as deputy director for the state police administrative division.
