Louisiana State Police’s recently retired superintendent misused agency resources, according to a new audit obtained by the Advocate. Mike Edmonson served as State Police superintendent for nine years, the longest tenure of any superintendent. He stepped down from the position in March after troopers racked up thousands of dollars in overtime on an out-of-state trip.

During his tenure, troopers were frequently tasked with transporting Edmondson’s wife, and fleet personnel were asked to conduct maintenance on personal vehicles.
