Karsten To Take Over Department Of Public Safety

Governor Mike Parson has announced the first female superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol will take over the role of Director of the Department of Public Safety permanently.

Colonel Sandra Karsten will replace Drew Juden who is stepping down at the end of August.


It was originally reported Karsten would take the position as an interim. Last week, she announced her retirement from the Patrol.

The appointment to the cabinet position is pending senate approval.
