FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – A nearly 10 foot tall tribute honoring Kentucky State Police troopers who have lost their lives in the line of duty was unveiled Monday.

The bronze statue entitled The Trooper was revealed outside of the KSP training academy.

Sculptor Benjamin Victor crated the statue and said he paid careful attention to all of the details of the uniforms worn by Kentucky troopers in the process.

According to officials, KSP Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association formed a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization called The Trooper Project to fund the effort.
