IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An assistant director of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation has been moved into a lateral position in which he will no longer oversee major cases.
Department of Public Safety investigative operations director Jim Saunders said Monday that Gerard Meyers has been reassigned to oversee the department's criminal history section.
Saunders says Meyers has great expertise in the use of technology, and that skill set is needed for the new role. He says that position opened after John Quinn's recent retirement.
Saunders says he's searching for someone to replace Meyers as assistant DCI director for field operations, and that he wants someone with experience handling investigations into homicides and other violent crimes.
The reassignment comes after DCI director Chari Paulson was moved into another administration position in January.
