(Neb)-San Diego Harbor Police Chief New Neb State Patrol Supt.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Pete Ricketts has chosen a Port of San Diego police official to lead the Nebraska State Patrol, an agency plagued by allegations that it mishandled internal investigations.
Ricketts on Thursday announced that he has picked Harbor Police Department Chief John Bolduc as the patrol's new superintendent.
Bolduc will replace former Col. Brad Rice, whom Ricketts fired on June 30 after learning about alleged impropriety within the agency.
The 52-year-old Bolduc currently oversees a department with 170 team members and a $38 million annual budget. The department is an independent public agency that serves San Diego Bay.
He previously served as a police chief in Brainerd and Mora, Minnesota.
Bolduc will formally begin his new duties on Oct. 16. He will earn $150,000 a year.
