Allen Layne, a decorated trooper with the Kentucky State Police for 25 years, will direct the Criminal Justice Program at Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. Achieving the rank of sergeant, Layne, a resident of Cumberland, retired from the KSP recently and will begin his job at SKCTC at the onset of the spring semester.
Layne has worked as an adjunct faculty member for the college over the past 15 years. Upon his retirement from the state agency, he noted how “excited” he is about the new position as he works to prepare students for careers in the criminal justice field.
Beginning with the spring semester, Layne said six classes would be offered on the Cumberland campus, with five classes each to be taught at the Whitesburg and Middlesboro sites, and with two classes offered at the Harlan campus.
