JEFFERSON CITY — There's a new man in charge at the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Col. Ron Replogle was sworn in Monday as superintendent of the patrol. He was appointed to the post last month by Gov. Jay Nixon following the retirement of Superintendent James Keathley.
The patrol superintendent oversees about 2,200 employees. Replogle has been with the Highway Patrol for 26 years and most recently was commander of its Criminal Investigation Bureau.
