Prison, public safety leaders to leave before Malloy's exit

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Connecticut's prison and public safety commissioners have told Gov. Dannel P. Malloy that they will be stepping down before the governor's final term ends in January.

Department of Correction Commissioner Scott Semple and Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner Dora Schriro are among numerous Malloy appointees expected to leave their jobs, as traditionally is the case when a new administration takes over.

Malloy did not seek a third term and his last day is Jan. 9.

Semple told prison staff he will retire Jan. 1 after more than 30 years with the Correction Department, including nearly four years as commissioner.

Schriro became public safety commissioner in 2014. She said she is going to stop and ``take stock'' before deciding her next move during a 25-year public safety career.
