If Chief Andy Mills leaves EPD, will his replacement be Captain Brian Stephens?

Eureka Chief Andy Mills has not officially resigned from EPD.  He has been offered a job with the Santa Cruz police department.
The offer is tentative, pending background check.

Sometimes, the grapevine isn't hearsay. Chief Mills' house has been up for sale. Even before that, there has been talk of Chief Mills leaving. At the same time, there has was talk of who his replacement would be.

It has been "hinted at"/" rumored'" that the recommendation for his replacement will be Captain Brian Stephens. I have reached out to inquire about this possibility.


  1. Oh no how do you know he is leaving?

    1. He has a tentative job offer pending background check.

    2. he told you that?

    3. Did I say he told me that, no. I said I have inquired about that possibility.

  2. I can see where Santa Cruz would value his experience since the two areas have much in common and demand similar experience and understanding. Also a Uni town: UCSC...beautiful campus.

  3. I wouldn't call Santa Cruz a town but any means...
