Yesterday, Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo announced that former NYPD chief Joseph D'Amico would head the NY State Police, saying, "Chief D’Amico brings extraordinary police credentials and a fresh perspective to the State Police, which will be a significant asset in re-establishing the good reputation of this distinguished force." The State Police has been embroiled in various scandals with previous governors—Pataki's State police head stopped a NYPD probe of his campaign finances, Spitzer had Troopergate, Paterson had the state police's involvement in his aide's domestic violence incident. The Post's editorial board says D'Amico will need a big broom.
