Wichita State's chief of university police Paul Dotson announced his retirement, effective June 8. He will be replaced by Sara Morris, a captain in the University Police Department for the past eight years, according to Mary Herrin, vice president for administration and finance.

Dotson was chief of University Police for 10 years. He began his public safety services career in January 1978.

Morris has 28 years of law enforcement experience, including nine years in homicide. She will be the first woman university police chief at a Kansas Board of Regents school.

Morris was the first female robbery/homicide detective in the Wichita Police Department, and the first Wichita Police Department officer promoted directly to homicide.

In 20 years at the Wichita Police Department, Morris was a police officer, undercover officer, homicide detective, patrol sergeant and patrol lieutenant. She earned three Bronze Wreaths and other awards.

She earned her bachelor's degree from Kansas State University and her master's degree from Wichita State University.
