Officials at the Los Altos municipality have announced the appointment of Angela Everight as police chief.
“I am humble to serve the Los Altos community as a police chief and eager to get to work,” Everett said. “My commitment to safety, responsibility, fairness and decency will strive to ensure the well-being of everyone who lives, works and travels in Los Altos.”
Everit has more than 25 years of experience in policing and law enforcement. She most recently served as Deputy Chief of Police for BART, where she created and implemented the Advanced Police Bureau and Community Involvement, assisting people within the BART system who experience homelessness, mental illness and drug addiction.
She received her bachelor’s degree in leadership and organizational studies from St. Mary’s College. She is also a graduate of the Alameda County Leadership Academy and the Los Angeles Police Department Leadership Academy.
Averiet currently serves a number of organizations, including the California Association of Hostage Negotiation Negotiators and Women’s Law Enforcement.
“Chief Ebright has a proven track record as a dynamic and respected leader in public safety,” said City Director Gabriel England.
Everight will take over as principal on Aug. 1 and she will replace former chief Andy Gaul, who retired on July 1 after more than 14 years in office, city officials said.
Everight will oversee the city’s 32 jurors and 17 other staff members.
