Governor-elect Mike Pence announced Wednesday his selection for the new superintendent of the Indiana State Police.
Pence appointed Doug Carter, who previously served two terms as the Hamilton County sheriff.
“Doug Carter is a veteran of the State Police and served the people of Hamilton County well as sheriff,” said Pence. “His experience will help him provide leadership to the State Police who so capably serve all Hoosiers.”
Before his tenure as sheriff, Carter served as a road trooper for the ISP Pendleton post for 18 years.
Most recently, Carter worked in the private sector, providing public safety solutions to municipalities throughout the state.
