University Police Chief Sara Morris will retire Sept. 29, Wichita State announced Friday morning.

Morris is taking ten days off beginning Sept. 1, the day her retirement was announced. UPD Captain Guy Schroeder is filling in for Morris until she returns Sept. 11.

Other members of the university police department said they were informed of her plans to retire Aug. 31.

“She was just ready to retire,” Schroeder said of Morris. “She’s just got a lot on her plate. She’s ready to move on.”

Morris could not be reached for comment.

Morris was the first female police chief to serve at a Kansas Board of Regents school.

Morris became police chief in 2013 after former police chief Paul Dotson retired from the position.

Morris served as a captain in the university police department for eight years before being promoted to police chief. Prior to that, she spent 20 years with the Wichita Police Department, where she was the first female robbery/homicide detective, and the first officer promoted directly to homicide.

“She’s got a lot of things on her plate,” Schroeder said. “We all do these days, it seems like.”
