Outgoing Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin may be going to work for the state of Tennessee.

Tennessee Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Bill Gibbons has called a 3 p.m. press conference at the Criminal Justice Center to make an announcement about Godwin.

Godwin announced last week that he would retire as Memphis Police director effective April 15.

Gibbons’ department includes the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Gibbons is the former Shelby County district attorney general who became part of Gov. Bill Haslam’s cabinet on Jan. 15, the day Haslam took office.
