Retired Trooper Reflects On Colonel Randy Glover's Resignation From Highway Patrol

The search is on for the next commander of North Carolina's Highway Patrol after Colonel Randy Glover announced Friday he would be retiring in the midst of controversy about trooper misconduct.

WITN sat down with a retired North Carolina State Trooper in New Bern.

David Garrish, now a police captain with Carolina East Health Systems worked with Glover when he first started as a trooper.

Garrish says he watched Glover move up the ranks and thought he was doing a good job trying to clean up the patrol, that's why he says it was sad to see him go.

Garrish agrees with Governor Perdue that trooper misconduct is unacceptable, but he says the fault lies with those involved in the behavior, not with Glover.

He also told us he thinks it would be a mistake to look for the next commander outside the patrol.

    Unfortunately for you Garrish, Perdue will probably do a lot more things to disappoint you just like the rest of us. She is in this position for her own well being, not NC's well being.
