On August 24th, 2020, Chief Roger Solomon was presented with our Re-accreditation certificate from Shawn Butler, Executive Director of the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police. The Re-accreditation proves that the Franklin Police Department has examined all aspects of their operations. It proves that we have made conscious decisions about policies and procedures that fit the law enforcement requirements of their jurisdictions and have implemented those policies and trained officers in their use. Re-accreditation reflects that the agency was carefully measured against an established set of standards and had met or exceeded professionally accepted law enforcement practices in law enforcement.

This KACP Re-accreditation will be good for four years and then we will strive to get our third Re-accreditation. To be able to complete this process, and to do it four months early during a pandemic speaks volumes to the commitment of the men and women of the Franklin Police Department. During trying times for law enforcement in the United States, where many police departments in metropolitan cities are facing intense scrutiny for their law enforcement practices, this shows that the Franklin Police Department has and will continue to meet those challenges head on.

Comcast Drops WBKO Channel 247

As many of you have noticed, Comcast has recently dropped WBKO channel 247 from their lineup. This is not an issue that the City has caused, nor can we correct it. According to Kim Sasser-Hayden, Comcast Sr. Manager of Governmental Affairs for the Franklin, KY area, ABC will now only allow one channel to broadcast their programming, and Comcast dropped WBKO channel 247 for Franklin instead of channel 2 out of Nashville. She is checking into the possibility of dropping channel 2 and bringing back WBKO channel 247 for the Franklin, KY area. If you would like to contact her to express your opinion, her contact number is 615-476-6071, and her email address is
