Before administering the oath of office to current San Ramon Police Department Capt. Denton Carlson and formalizing his promotion to chief of the department, the council is set to issue a proclamation honoring Stevens' tenure in the role and confirming his retirement.

Stevens first announced his forthcoming retirement in March but has been serving as interim chief until a permanent hire was made.

Carlson is poised to be the city's fifth chief of police since an independent police department was established for San Ramon in 2007.

The regular council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday (July 26). Read the full agenda here.
