Jul 18, 2012 - The Associated Press

CHEYENNE -- Gov. Matt Mead says a veteran agent with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration is taking over as head of the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.

Mead says Steve Woodson will serve as new director of DCI.

Woodson has worked for the Drug Enforcement Administration for 20 years as a special agent, mainly in Wyoming. He also has worked as a special agent and team leader with the Wyoming DCI.

Mead worked closely with Woodson when the governor was United States Attorney for Wyoming. Mead says he's pleased to have Woodson on the job.

Current DCI Director Forrest Bright is moving to the governor's protection detail with the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
