BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - Bellevue, Washington, has a new police chief.

KCPQ-TV reports (https://is.gd/Mlc3qs ) that 49-year-old Steve Mylett was sworn in Monday. He replaces Chief Linda Pillo, who retired in April 2014.

Mylett was hired after the second of two nationwide searches. He comes to the department from Southlake, Texas, where he had served as police chief since 2011.

In a statement, Mylett said he was “very excited to be joining a professional organization with such a dedicated workforce” and pledged to lead the department with an “ethical and moral” compass.

Bellevue City Manager Brad Miyake praised Mylett as a seasoned leader, adding that he believes the new chief is “going to bring the police department to that next level that we’re looking at.”
