Highway Patrol Commander Randy Glover has submitted his resignation, according to a report on WRAL.com.
“This morning, I met with Highway Patrol Col. Randy Glover and (Crime Control and Public Safety) Secretary Reuben Young,” Gov. Bev Perdue said in a statement. “After a brief discussion, I accepted the colonel’s resignation.”
Perdue did not say why Glover resigned.
His resignation, effective Sept. 1, comes amid Perdue’s call for restructuring the agency after a number of cases in the past few years involving troopers who have resigned, been fired or disciplined for inappropriate or questionable conduct, including profiling, drunken driving, animal abuse and sex on duty.
