TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Pima Community College has named Manuel "Manny" Amado as its acting police chief.
He replaces Stella Bay, who retired Friday after seven years at the Tucson school.
Amado has 25 years of law enforcement experience and has served as police commander at Pima Community since 2004.
As commander, he was second-in-command of the college's police department which has 38 full-time and 22 part-time employees.
Amado served as acting police chief for three months in 2007.
School officials say Amado developed Pima Community's campus watch program and has taught emergency preparedness and workplace safety.
He previously worked for the Pima County Sheriff's Department and South Tucson Police Department.
