FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer is retiring after 34 years with the law enforcement agency.

A state police release Friday said Brewer will retire Feb. 29.

Brewer served as KSP commissioner for eight years and led the agency through tough budgetary times. His tenure also included constructing a new training academy and merging the Commercial Vehicle Division into the KSP fold.

Programs rolled out during his tenure included the Citizen’s Police Academy and the Safe Schools Active Shooter Training Program.

Brewer’s assignments with state police included uniformed operations, special investigations, narcotics, strategic planning, academy commander and the executive protection detail assigned to guard the governor and lieutenant governor.

The KSP release says Brewer plans to take a few months off before pursuing other career opportunities.
