OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The former head of the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety has been appointed to the governing body of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Gov. Mary Fallin announced Friday that she's naming Roger Webb to the post to replace a member who is resigning. If confirmed by the Senate, Webb would serve the rest of the term through 2017.
Webb is a member of the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Hall of Fame and is also a longtime university president in Oklahoma. He served as president of Northeastern State University in Tahlequah for nearly 20 years from 1978 to 1997 and the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond from 1997 to 2011.
Webb currently serves on the board for an Edmond bank and does consulting for the State Regents for Higher Education.
