To provide critical support to enhance the capability of prosecutors in effectively enforcing Kentucky’s traffic safety laws.
The Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor Program provides the training and support necessary for Kentucky’s prosecutors and law enforcement to accomplish our shared goal of reducing fatalities and serious injuries related to impaired driving.
Tom Lockridge and Aaron Ann Cole have been appointed to serve as the Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors through the Unified Prosecutorial System (UPS) and the Kentucky State Police (KSP) for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Our role as specialized prosecutors is to provide education, training, and technical assistance to prosecutors and law enforcement throughout the State. We assist prosecutors and law enforcement by coordinating regional trainings, giving individual technical assistance where needed, conducting legal research, and representing law enforcement interests at State and regional traffic safety meetings. Whether the topic is DUI, suspended or revoked drivers, aggressive or distracted drivers, traffic stops, traffic safety checkpoints, ignition interlock devices, or any other traffic related subject, we are here to support both prosecutors and law enforcement.
