Stampede for the Thin Blue Line Honors Sheriff Ricki Allen
In the Spring of 2018, Ricki was running for the Sheriff of Muhlenberg County. These were his very own words from April 18th, 2018.
"I have been blessed beyond what I have deserved over the years with a great family, friends and career. No matter where my career led me, my family was always a top priority. Most of the time in the state police, if you get promoted, you are reassigned due to no vacancies at your home post. I worked as a patrolman taking calls for a year at Madisonville PD, six years with KSP, and four years at Central City PD. When promoted to Sergeant in the KSP for three years I worked with the patrolmen on the streets and was a first-line supervisor. It was until I got promoted to Lieutenant, Captain and Major where I started making decisions during critical incidents, manpower allocations, budgets, scheduling, goals and objectives to deter crime and collisions. I learned a lot throughout my travels but never relocated my home. I may have to stay a day or two occasionally during my promotion in a specific area but I’ve always had my home in Muhlenberg County.", Ricki Allen
