BOSTON — Gov. Deval Patrick yesterday tapped veteran trooper Marian McGovern to be the first female leader of the Massachusetts State Police, promoting a 30-year veteran who was among only a dozen women in the agency when she began her career.

"She has done just about every job in the state police," Patrick said of his pick yesterday. "She is very well-prepared and very well-regarded."
