One of Cynthiana’s long-standing police officers has been honored by his peers.
Cpl. Walter Tapp, 46, was voted Officer of the Year in December.
Tapp, who has been with the Cynthiana Police Department for 20 years, said he had no idea his fellow officers were going to select him for the annual recognition.
During his tenure, Tapp has served with six different chiefs of police. He was hired by then-Chief Bob Barkley.
