Lubbock's City Council is set to confirm the appointment of Jerry Brewer as interim LPD Chief during its Thursday night meeting.
Brewer switched from being Assistant Chief of Patrol to Assistant Chief of Investigations June 25.
A day later, the city manager demoted Police Chief Roger Ellis to Captain and named Brewer the acting chief.
So far, there's been no official explanation for that action.
A news release stated only that the city manager demoted Ellis in accordance with civil service laws.
Ellis has retired from the force.
