The number two man at the Rhode Island State Police is retiring next week. Deputy Superintendent Raymond Studley is stepping down after 22 years on the job.
His future with the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is unclear. Studley has been running RIPTA since last summer, when a camera was found covered over in a room where money is counted.
RIPTA board chairman Scott Avedisian says no decision has been made on whether the agency will retain Studley. His title at RIPTA is interim CEO.
