The man in charge of the FBI in Colorado has been picked to lead the state's public safety department.
Gov.-elect John Hickenlooper announced his decision to appoint Jim Davis to the post Thursday.
Davis, a 25-year FBI veteran, directed the investigation of Najibullah Zazi, the Denver-area airport shuttle driver who pleaded guilty in February in a plot to bomb a New York subway. He also served as the senior FBI representative to the U.S. ambassador in Iraq.
Hickenlooper also announced that Barbara Kelley will remain executive director of the Department of Regulatory Agencies.
The appointments must be confirmed by the state Senate.
