Detective Chris Carter earned the honor of Detective of the Year for Post 14 in Ashland. Carter has served there for seven years and is assigned as a General Detective to Boyd, Carter, Greenup, and Lawrence Counties. Carter lives in Lawrence County.
The two men were honored at an awards ceremony back in May at the Capital Plaza Hotel in Frankfort.
