DOVER, Del.- The head of Delaware State Police is retiring from the force later this month after nearly 28 years in uniform.

Officials announced Tuesday that police superintendent Col. Robert M. Coupe is retiring effective Friday, Dec. 21. Police officials gave no reason for Coupe's decision to retire.

Coupe joined state police in 1985 and has served in a variety of posts, including as troop commander, internal affairs investigator, homicide detective, training officer at the DSP Training Academy and as a member of the DSP Honor Guard Unit, and a founding member of the DSP Pipes & Drums. In July 2009, Gov. Jack Markell appointed him to the position of superintendent, with the rank of colonel.

"I will look back on my 28 years of service to the State of Delaware fondly, and cherish the memories and the people I met along the way," Coupe said in a statement. "It has truly been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of Delaware as a trooper with the Delaware State Police."
