ANCHORAGE - Gov. Sarah Palin appointed a new review committee to help in the search for the next public safety commissioner.
Palin said the six-member panel announced Friday will look for qualified candidates from within the Department of Public Safety and from across the state.
Palin fired former commissioner Walt Monegan July 11, replacing him with Kenai Police Chief Chuck Kopp.
Kopp resigned last week after an undisclosed reprimand that stemmed from a sexual harassment claim against him came to light.
