Description

The Herald-Leader found that Lexington police and firefighters retire on tax-free disability more than three times as often as Kentucky State Police officers. Many of these retirees then go on to new jobs, including ones similar to those that they were supposedly too disabled to perform. Others lead active lifestyles, including marathon running and training for war. Many retirees are some of Lexington's most notorious officers, retiring on disability before they can be fired or disciplined.
