NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has picked Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch to become the new director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

In a news release Monday, Haslam's office said Rausch brings a wealth of experience and proven leadership to the agency. He will become director effective June 25.

Rausch has served as Knoxville's police chief since 2011 and oversees more than 500 employees, including about 400 sworn officers. He joined the department in 1993 and rose through the ranks.

A U.S. Army veteran, Rausch served in the Military Police Corps from 1986 to 1990.

Haslam picked Rausch over two other finalists: TBI Acting Director Jason Locke and Tennessee Board of Parole member Tim Gobble.

Former TBI Director Mark Gwyn retired last month after three decades with the agency.
