Los Altos Police Capt. Andy Galea is not a new face around Los Altos. The St. Francis High School alumnus joined the city’s force seven years ago. With Police Chief Tuck Younis’ imminent retirement, Galea will become the new chief of the Los Altos Police Department effective Dec. 17.
The Town Crier asked Galea a few questions to get better acquainted with him and to understand his plans for the department going forward. The conversation has been edited for conciseness and clarity.
