  • PHOTO: Taylorsville Police, KSP sponsor ‘Cram the Cruiser’

    The Taylorsville Police Department and Kentucky State Police Post 12 in Frankfort are partnering to “Cram the Cruiser” — two cruisers, actually.  A Taylorsville Police cruiser and a KSP cruiser are parked outside of Country Mart with the agencies’ goal of collecting enough food to fill them both, then deliver to families in need in the community. To help, drop off non-perishable items at The Spencer Magnet, Hometown Pizza, Country Mart or The Tea Cup. Pictured are TPD Chief Toby Lewis and KSP Sgt. Scott Felder.
