Eureka P.D. In Turmoil
I'd heard a few rumblings on the local blogs about things going on in Eureka Police Department but, personally, I had no idea. Looks like even former department spokesbabe, Susie Owsley, seems to think the work environment there has gotten "intolerable".
I'd wondered why Murl Harpham became lieutenant all of the sudden. He was a captain for years and no mention of the change in the papers. Was this an actual demotion or simply part of departmental reorganization under Chief Nielsen? I can't think of any captains with Eureka P.D. Maybe Nielsen did away with the position?
If this is all the Chief's fault, it sure didn't take him long to piss people off. This could be just the normal reaction, though, to a newcomer who comes in and stirs things up where people were pretty comfortable. Regardless, hopefully the powers that be will look into the situation.
As far as all this talk about how much better Eureka has become under Nielsen, it's beyond me. I can't tell any difference, and I don't mean any slight against Nielsen by saying that. The same things have been happening around here as they always have.
