Security Chief Candidates

The Knox County school system has been calling people in the local law enforcement community to check the references and do a background check on Knoxville Deputy Police Chief Gus Paidousis.

Paidousis, who was a losing candidate for police chief when Mayor Madeline Rogero took office, is likely among those being considered as the new chief of security for the school system.

Retired KPD Assistant Chief Bill Roehl is also reportedly being considered.

Current school security chief Steve Griffin retires/resigns this week after questions were raised about faulty security systems in county schools.
