Stephen Mylett

BELLEVUE — The city of Bellevue likely has a new police chief.

On Monday, city manager Brad Miyake announced that Stephen Mylett has accepted the city’s conditional offer to be its next police chief. Mylett was one of four candidates who interviewed in Bellevue last week, city officials said.

Mylett is currently the police chief of Southlake, Texas.

The office announced the offer is contingent on the completion of additional background checks and a meeting between Mylett and Interim Police Chief Jim Montgomery. If all goes as planned, Mylett is expected to report to duty in early April, city officials said.

The city first launched the police chief search last summer.

    Coming from a department of only 73 sworn/civilian employees, hopefuly he’s qualified enough to lead a large department like Bellevue. Only time will tell.
