Morro Bay residents have a new chief of police.
Amy Christy, a lieutenant with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department, was announced Monday as the new top cop by City Manager Andrea K. Lueker.
According to Lueker, Christy “distinguished herself as a top candidate” during an interview process described by city officials as “rigorous.”
Christy, whose mother resides in Morro Bay, will be sworn in Nov. 13. She holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice management and is pursuing a law degree at Monterey College of Law.
