Public Safety Commissioner Resigns

Iowa Department of Public Safety Commissioner Brian London has resigned after a rocky tenure that lasted less than a year. Governor Branstad's office confirmed the resignation and announced the appointment of Larry Nobleto lead the department that he left last year. London's resignation comes after months of negative publicity for the department, which includes the Division of Criminal Investigation and the Iowa State Patrol. London has been sued for his role in the firing of DCI Special Agent Larry Hedlund, who contends his superiors retaliated against him for filing a complaint about Branstad's speeding state vehicle.
