White succeeds James Williby, who previously held the position. As assistant chief, she will oversee patrol services, day-to-day department operations, and the hiring and onboarding of new RRISD Police officers.
She brings 30 years of law enforcement experience, 20 of which were spent in public schools, according to the district. Before working in law enforcement, White was a kindergarten and first grade teacher, and she holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and early childhood education from Edinboro University.
“I am dedicated to maintaining an equitable, inclusive and collaborative culture,” White said in a release from the district. “Successfully creating goals and achieving stakeholder objectives is a high priority of mine.”
White joins RRISD Chief Dennis Weiner in leading the department. Weiner was appointed in July.
