TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Pima County Board of Supervisors has made it official: Chief Deputy Chris Nanos will replace Clarence Dupnik as sheriff when Dupnik retires July 31.

The supervisors on Tuesday formally appointed Nanos as sheriff effective Aug. 1.

Dupnik has served as the county’s sheriff since 1980, while Nanos joined the Sheriff’s Department as a corrections officer in 1984.

Nanos became a deputy sheriff later that year, subsequently rising through the ranks until being appointed chief deputy by Dupnik in January 2014.
