Governor Terry Branstad has named a new commissioner of the Iowa Department of Public Safety.
Branstad on Tuesday appointed 59-year-old K. Brian London to the post, replacing Larry Noble, who retired in July.
London has over 30 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol, the CIA, the Secret Service, the International Criminal Police Organization, or INTERPOL, in France and with Florida's Department of Financial Services. Most recently, he was an independent security consultant in Florida.
Branstad says London has a "wealth of experience" to bring to Iowa. London begins his new job on October 8.
