“This year’s photo submission represents the bluegrass with imagery of what we are best known for – horse country,” says KSP Spokesman Sgt. Billy Gregory. “We selected a photo that not only represents Kentucky State Police but also the citizens we serve on a daily basis.”

MSHP and KSP cruisers have been featured in the AAST calendar before.

KSP won the national contest in 2018 and came in second place last year, with 48,459 total votes.

Last year, Missouri’s photo took 11th place.
