Jon Halsey: Questions method of naming KSP Commissioner
Comments re article 80181 Next Steps In Selection Process for KSP Commissioner
By Jon Halsey
I'm aware that the position of State Police Commissioner is part of the political "spoils system" in many States.
While I can come up with a long list of why this is a problem, I can't think of any benefits to be derived from having the State Police so closely tied to the Governor's office and to politics in general.
Admittedly I am biased as a result of my experience in Southern Alabama in the early 1960's and later, while living in Tennessee, with the scandals involving the Blanton Administration and the State Police.
Can anyone in CM land offer some positives provided by the current system? I really am curious.
