I find this pretty wild, if only because I know one of the two "new" cops hired by Eureka P.D.
Gary Cooper is an old National Guard buddy of mine. He was a Eureka Police Reserve officer for quite a while but was never able to get hired for some reason. The Sheriff's Office hired him, eventually, and he's worked there for years.
I was under the impression he was fairly happy with the Sheriff's Office. I'm dying to ask him why he chose to return to Eureka P.D. I suppose I shouldn't have long to wait since he works in Eureka now.
I'm not sure this will be much of a boost in manpower, though. Gary is- last time I spoke with him anyway- the Platoon Sergeant of my old National Guard unit: Det 1, 870th Military Police Company. Last time we spoke, he said he was looking forward to an upcoming tour in Iraq. You still going there, Coop?
Then again, I don't recall just how long ago that was. Maybe he decided to retire from the Guard? He had enough time to.
Can't wait to ask him.
