Head Of Del. State Police Stepping Down

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The head of the Delaware State Police is retiring from the force later this month after almost 28 years in uniform.
    
Officials said Tuesday that police superintendent Col. Robert Coupe is retiring effective Friday, Dec. 21.
    
Coupe joined the state police in 1985. He has served in a variety of posts, including troop commander, internal affairs investigator, homicide detective and training officer.
    
He was appointed superintendent in July 2009 by Gov. Jack Markell.
    
The 49-year-old Coupe said that when he took the job, he planned to build a good leadership team then turn over the reins.
    
Coupe said he has been discussing his retirement plans with the governor's office for several months, and that he hopes a member of his executive staff will be picked to succeed him.
