Kentucky State Police are reminding the community about the "Angel Initiative."

Under the initiative, anyone battling addiction can arrive at any KSP post to get help finding treatment.

People who choose to take advantage of the program can turn over any drugs or paraphernalia without consequences and will be screened to determine the best course of treatment.

Individuals who arrive at a KSP Post should expect the following:
- Provide a photo ID or other means of identification. It's helpful to have a copy of your insurance information but lack of insurance does not disqualify you from participating.
- Individuals will be asked to sign a 'Participant Agreement Form'.
- If an individual has any drugs/drug paraphernalia, they will not be charged, jailed or investigated. The drugs and/or paraphernalia will be confiscated.
- Individuals will be asked to provide information during the intake screening to determine the best treatment options.
- If at any time during the intake process an individual decides to discontinue services, the individual may do so without any consequences. This is a voluntary program.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
