Additional Kentucky State Police troopers from southeast Kentucky have been deployed to Louisville.
Officials with Kentucky State Police Post 10 in Harlan, which also serves Knox and Bell counties, announced Thursday that 12 troopers were deployed.
Troopers from Post 11 in London were deployed Monday morning as the protests turned violent. At the same time, officials said Post 10 was placed on standby for potential deployment.
