I want to take a moment to thank our wonderful community. When Speedway approached us with this idea all I could think was in February how tough it would be to get people out. The weather was our friend today and I am happy to say that we had a huge turnout. Not only did we pack a cruiser but we managed to pack a 12' trailer. A special thanks to these 2 kids that came out and donated. They told us that they used all of their own money to help provide food to someone who is less fortunate. I want to thank everyone who took time out of their day to help with this great event. You all have made a difference. ... See MoreSee Less

We are honored to be able to have this 5.74K in remembrance of him. We are thankful for the FOP and Nicholasville Police Department for hosting this event. The community has shown such tremendous support for the family and the officers of NPD. We are grateful to be able to give back to the Fraternal Order of Police and the Nicholasville Police Department with the proceeds from the run that will support the community programs in Jessamine County and the City of Nicholasville. WHY A 5.74K?Simply put, Officer Burke Rhoads was a unique and rigorous individual, and his badge number was 574. The Nicholasville Police Department retired his badge, but it only seems fitting to bring it out of retirement to make a challenging event as distinctive as he was!REGISTER at runsignup.com/Race/KY/Nicholasville/TheBurke574K ...

Good morning everyone,Just wanted to remind everyone to come out to Speedway on N. Main St. next to McDonald's today anytime between 12-3. We are partnering with Speedway and the Jessamine County Schools for our first Pack The Cruiser Event. Please bring any non perishable food item that you are willing to donate and Pack it in my Cruiser. Our goal is to fill my truck up with as many items as we can. This event was developed by Speedway and the partnership was formed in an effort to help in local communities. We have partnered with the Jessamine County Schools in order to help assist in feeding the children in our community. There are kids in our community that leave school everyday and do not get another meal until they return, please take a moment and check your pantry or run into Walmart and grab an item or two to support this event.Thanks for all you do!!Kevin Grimes ...

Become a police officer: start here

Welcome to the Nicholasville Police Department! If you believe your work should do more than just pay the bills — that it should improve the community and make a difference in someone’s life — then a career in law enforcement may be for you.

Our agency accepts applications any time.  Applications will stay on file for 1 year from date of submission.  Keep up to date on application deadlines for future processes by following our FaceBook page or Twitter feed.

Police officers see their work matter every day: responding to a traffic collision, helping a family in crisis, investigating a crime. It’s something different every day. We are looking for men and women from a variety of backgrounds who care about people and want to help solve problems.

I’m interested. Now what?
