Roger Lee Stearns started his new duties as police chief at The University of Texas-Pan American Monday, April 13. Stearns, who was the former Vanderbilt University officer, served as a police major overseeing 60 commissioned officers assigned in three patrol precincts, including the medical center. His plans at UTPA include increasing professional training opportunities for the commissioned and support staff of the department, as well as to expand community-oriented policing initiatives to facilitate more involvement with students, staff and faculty.
