Brian Johnson, who was Upland police chief since 2015, is no longer employed in the position, Upland City Manager Martin Thouvenell confirmed Thursday.

Thouvenell said it was a “personnel issue” and could not elaborate further. He said the city will be hiring an interim chief. Lt. Cliff Mathews will run the department until a new chief is hired.

Johnson’s last day was last Friday.

Johnson was sworn in in April 2015. He came to Upland with 26 years in law enforcement, including serving as a captain for the Los Angeles Police Department, according to his biography on the city’s website. He received a bachelor’s degree from Cal State Long Beach and a master’s degree from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
