Gov. Brown announces new Oregon State Police superintendent

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has announced her choice to lead the state’s largest law enforcement agency. Brown said Monday in a statement that Terri Davie is a 24-year veteran of law enforcement in Oregon. Davie will assume the role Nov. 1, pending approval from the state Senate. Brown says Davie has a strong record of leading by example with a focus on inclusivity. Brown says she is dedicated to listening to community voices,  including Oregon’s Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and Tribal communities, as the state works toward a more fair and just law enforcement system in Oregon. Previous superintendent Travis Hampton announced his retirement earlier this month.
