University Of Wyoming Police Chief Takes UT Job

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The University of Tennessee has selected the University of Wyoming’s police chief to head the UT Police Department.

The Associated Press reported Troy Lane will take over the department in Knoxville on June 25. The 43-year-old Lane has headed Wyoming’s campus police since 2007 and previously was assistant chief at Kansas State University.

Lane will earn $125,000 annually, the same salary as his predecessor. Lane said he accepted a few hours after being offered the job on Tuesday.

He described the UT job as a “pinnacle position” and said he plans on being at the university for a long time.

Lane emphasized community policing during community forums on campus last month and again Wednesday, saying cracking down on minor crimes helps head off more serious violations.
