Former officer to head Kentucky Emergency Management

BY ADAM BEAMAssociated Press

FRANKFORT - Gov. Steve Beshear has chosen a former Louisville assistant police chief to lead the state's troubled Emergency Management division.

Michael Dossett will take over the state's disaster response planning on Monday. He is the permanent replacement for former director John Heltzel, who resigned last summer after a scathing audit found the agency misspent $5.6 million on things like alcohol and entertainment.

"Michael Dossett is the right man at the right time for this job," Beshear said in a news release. "I have full confidence that, under Mike's leadership, the safety and welfare of citizens of the Commonwealth are in good hands."

Dossett is a former assistant police chief for the Louisville Metro Police Department and a former deputy commissioner for the Department of Juvenile Justice. He was a regional response manager with Kentucky Emergency Management when he retired in 2013. He was unavailable for comment on Friday.

Emergency Management is a division of the Department of Military Affairs under the leadership of the adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Edward Tonini.
