Terri Moses, deputy chief of the Wichita Police Department, will be the new executive director of safety and security for Wichita schools, district officials announced Friday.

Moses will begin the position June 3. She replaces Debbie McKenna, who is retiring at the end of the school year.

“I am excited to be a part of this great organization,” Moses said in a news release. “The Wichita Police Department and the Wichita public schools have had a great partnership for many years and I look forward to the opportunity to build on that relationship as part of the district team.”

Moses, 54, has worked for the Wichita Police Department since 1981, according to city records.

McKenna has worked for the Wichita district nearly 32 years. She and Moses will work together throughout May to begin the transition of responsibilities, the news release said.

Moses’ salary will be $102,356 a year — the same as McKenna’s — a district spokeswoman said.
