UPLAND – The City Council on Monday night agreed to accept the police chief’s request for medical retirement.

The council gave City Manager Stephen Dunn the authorization to make an offer to Steve Adams to accept his request for retirement after 10 months of being on sick leave.

“We now are tendering an offer to Steve and if he accepts it, then we’re done with it,” Dunn said.

Adams has been with the Upland Police Department for 30 years. He was promoted to police chief in 2005.

Adams’ resignation could be in effect as early as today, Dunn said.

The council held off on making a decision on Adams’ retirement claim until the conclusion of an investigation by a third-party private investigation firm.

The investigation wrapped up last month.
