The Harlan post is the reigning champion with a total of 29,944 pounds of food collected this year. The Harlan post includes Bell, Harlan and Knox counties in southeastern Kentucky.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer says the agency collected more than 124,000 pounds of food during its recent food drive.

Brewer started the "Cram the Cruiser" food drive in 2010 to assist needy families across the state.

Since then, the state's lead police agency has contributed more than 300,000 pounds of food to shelters, food banks and churches in Kentucky.

Brewer says the campaign has turned into a friendly competition. He says state police posts and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement regions compete to see which location can collect the most food.

The Harlan post is the reigning champion with a total of 29,944 pounds of food collected this year. The Harlan post includes Bell, Harlan and Knox counties in southeastern Kentucky.
