“It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of Wyoming alongside the great men and women of the Wyoming Highway Patrol,” Haller said.

As the Wyoming Department of Transportation and WHP begin the search for a new Colonel, Shannon Ratliff will temporarily come out of retirement starting May 16 to serve as interim administrator.

Ratliff retired from the WHP in August 2021 as Lieutenant Colonel after more than 30 years of service in law enforcement.

“Ratliff’s experience will make him an invaluable part of our team as we work to fill this vacancy,” Reiner said.

WYDOT and WHP will consider applicants from both a nationwide pool as well as candidates currently serving with the WHP for the position.

The search process for a new Colonel is expected to take about six months.
