State police to oversee operations at RIPTA

Posted on August 28, 2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A top state police official was assigned with overseeing the management of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) and coordination of the investigation into possible mishandling of public resources at the agency, Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee announced.

Lt. Col. Raymond Studley, the No. 2 person at the state police, will work with RIPTA's chief executive on what he called "the overall picture." He won't be directly involved in looking into what happened during a security breach in June, when someone covered a security camera in a room where cash bus fares are handled, the Associated Press reported.
