There will be a press conference today to announce the retirement of Col. J.R. Howard, director of the Arkansas State Police. Trooper Stan Witt will reportedly take his place.

According to his bio at the Arkansas State Police website, Howard was born in Madison county, and became a Trooper in 1971. He spent the majority of his career as an investigator in the ASP's Criminal Investigations Division before becoming director.
