Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
The governor has been given a golden opportunity to appoint a new DPS director and should select DPS Lt. Col. Jenna Mitchell. Col. Mitchell is a career professional with a distinguished record and, unlike the current deputy director, no blemishes nor history of questionable decisions.
Jenna’s appointment would restore the respect lost by the current director in his unprofessional behavior demonstrated by his display of credentials to avoid a traffic citation. I’ve known Jenna for many years while working as a law enforcement officer. Her ethical values, leadership and professionalism would serve the state well as head of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
