JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi commissioner of public safety is stepping down as the state prepares to move from one governor to the next. Marshall Fisher announced his retirement Tuesday, his final day on the job.
A news release said the longtime law enforcement officer would “pursue other opportunities,” but did not specify what they are.
Gov. Phil Bryant chose Fisher to lead the state Department of Corrections in 2015 and the Department of Public Safety in 2017.
Bryant's successor as governor, Tate Reeves, takes office Jan. 14. Reeves is in the process of filling top jobs in his administration.
