Seventeen new faces were officially added to Lexington’s police force Friday morning.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Police officers in Lexington are using an online tool to keep track of crime trends across the city, and the information is also available to the public.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Lexington Fayette Urban County Council is wondering what’s holding up contract negotiations between the city and public safety unions.

At a budget committee Tuesday, the council learned that the last collective bargaining meeting with police representatives was nearly three months ago on December 12.

“I guess I don’t feel the sense of urgency in why we’re not actively pushing and meeting and trying to get to some resolution so we can figure out how much it’s really going to cost us,” said Councilman Kevin Stinnett.
