SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah's new commissioner of public safety is Colonel Scott Duncan of the Utah Highway Patrol.

Governor Huntsman made the announcement today.

Duncan is a 30-year veteran of the patrol. He says his goal is to make Utah the safest state in the country.

Duncan succeeds Commissioner Robert Flowers who has been named director of Region Eight for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Flowers has been Utah's public safety commissioner for six years. During the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, Flowers essentially was the Olympics security director.

He begins his job with FEMA in Denver on Monday. Flowers' region is made up of the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah.
