Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement
The Kentucky State Police Division of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE), commonly known as Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement (KVE), is a statewide law enforcement agency for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The department, which was a stand alone department until July 14, 2008 by executive order from Governor Steve Beshear, is now a division of the Kentucky State Police (KSP). The division employs both sworn officers and commercial vehicle inspectors. CVE's primary mission is the enforcement of all state laws/regulations on commercial and non commercial vehicles traveling throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. CVE's secondary mission along with Kentucky State Police's Special Operations Division D.E.S.I.(Drug Enforcement and Special Investigations,)is to conduct drug interdiction operations on the Commonwealth's state and county highways. The CVE division operates and monitors the Commonwealth's system of commercial vehicle weigh stations throughout Kentucky. Their headquarters is located in Frankfort.
