The head of State Police, Col. Mike Edmonson retires this week, but a state law narrows the search for his permanent replacement. A statute requires the next superintendent to be a commissioned State Police officer who graduated from the LSP academy. But President of the Metropolitan Crime Coalition Rafael Goyeneche says a nationwide search should be conducted.

The Governor’s Office says speculation that State Police Col. Mike Edmonson will step down is just a rumor. The State Police Superintendent has been surrounded in controversy over questionable travel by state troopers, and now troopers are being subpoenaed for a federal investigation looking into illegal campaign donations. President of the Metropolitan Crime Commission, Rafael Goyeneche, says none of this looks good for LSP.
