Twenty-five civilian employees were honored by the Kentucky State Police at a ceremony held Wednesday at Holiday Inn Hurstbourne Lane in Louisville.


Frankfort resident Boyce Wells was named 2010 KSP Civilian Employee of the Year. A four-year veteran of the agency, Wells is Event Coordinator Supervisor at KSP headquarters in Frankfort. A native of Hodgenville, he is a 1972 graduate of LaRue Co. High School. He also earned a bachelor of science degree from Campbellsville College in 1976 and a master of public affairs degree from Kentucky State University in 1982.

 As commander of the KSP Special Services Branch, Wells works with other agencies on events that require additional security for traffic control, general safety or specific individual security. Some of his accomplishments include coordinating public safety details for events such as the recently concluded World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park, the Kentucky Derby, Thunder Over Louisville, the National State Legislators Conference, the Rolex Three-Day Event and others. He also directed a special detail assembled to provide traffic control during filming on the roadways for the movie “Secretariat.”  

Wells oversees the daily operations of the KSP Honor Guard as well. The unit participated for the first time in the Fraternal Order of Police National Honor Guard Competition in Washington, DC last May and won all three phases of the competition. It was the first time that a team won the competition on its initial visit and the first time a team won all three phases.
