MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin State Patrol has hired a new leader.

Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb announced Friday that JD Lind will take over as patrol superintendent on Oct. 31.

Lind has worked for the State Patrol since 1994, serving in a variety of roles in the patrol’s northwest, north-central and southwest regional posts. He was promoted to lieutenant colonel last year and to colonel last month.

He replaces Stephen Fitzgerald, who retired in July after nearly 50 years in law enforcement. Fitzgerald is the father of state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and former Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald.
