Kentucky State Police want you to Cram the Cruiser The 5th annual "Cram the Cruiser" food drive officially begins on November 20, 2014 and will run through mid-December. Trooper Corey King said, "All of the donated products will go directly to our area county food pantries." "As the holidays are fast approaching, this will serve many meals for struggling families." All 16 Kentucky State Police posts will establish collection sites. Last year's campaign collected more than 62 tons of food for Kentucky families.
