Cynthiana has a new police officer in 25-year-old Joshua Carter.
Carter graduated April 2 from the police academy at Eastern Kentucky University. He’s now on the road with training officer Sgt. Eric Kendall working the third shift for the Cynthiana Police Department.
Carter received the physical fitness excellence award at the academy and was ranked among the top 20 percent of all police officers in the United States in physical fitness. The standing was based on his completion of a 300-meter run, mile and one half run, push ups, set ups and bench presses.
He is a 2002 graduate of Harrison County High School and a graduate of Nashville Auto Diesel College.
