North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue wants to talk to the leadership of the Highway Patrol in the wake of several cases of trooper misconduct.
Perdue's office said she will meet with about 160 members of the force's leadership Wednesday.
Perdue spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson says they will discuss plans to start the process of repairing the Highway Patrol's reputation. She declined to discuss details.
The meeting comes just a couple weeks after the force's top spokesman resigned after sending inappropriate text messages to a co-worker. One trooper resigned recently after being charged with drunken driving while another was fired after being pulled over on suspicion of drunken driving.
