Uvalde CISD names Joshua Gutierrez official police chief for district

Uvalde CISD named Joshua Gutierrez as its official police chief after working as the interim chief since last year. The school board unanimously approved Gutierrez in November 2022 for the interim position. The previous police chief was Pete Arredondo, who came under major scrutiny for the law enforcement handling of the mass shooting at Robb Elementary on May 24, 2022. Arredondo was fired in August.
