Backtracking at EPD underway under interim Police Chief
Temporary Eureka Police Chief Murl Harpham announced on local right-wing talk radio station KINS Wednesday that he was going to do some restructuring at EPD.
We’re “gonna get back to where I think it should be,” he said.
Murl has been acting Chief since Garr Nielsen was fired Friday.
For more on Murl’s retrograde motion tune into KSLG tomorrow morning for another installment of WTF is up with EPD.
As for future prospects to fill the position, sources say Humboldt County Coroner Dave Parris is at the top of the short list. Parris is old school EPD, with 27 years there before being hired in 2006 as Yurok Tribal Police Chief.
