Episode sponsored by Bongo Boy Studio.

In the latest episode of Humboldt Last Week (8:45): After almost four years of service as the Police Chief of Eureka, Andy Mills has taken a gig as the top cop in Santa Cruz. Moving closer to family, he and his wife will relocate to a city with well over twice as many people.

“I just really wanna thank the citizens of Eureka and the residents of Humboldt County who’ve welcomed us with open arms, who’ve treated us with nothing but respect,” Mills said. “We walk away from this experience better because we have met so many wonderful people… I just think it’s time now for another person to step in and take it to the next level and I’m sure that’ll take place…”

In the podcast Mills discusses past misconceptions regarding EPD, the media, the achievements he’s proudest of, what he hopes for in terms of the new Eureka Police Chief, his progressive policing, a roller coaster, and much more.

The interview begins at 8:45.
