At the San Jose Police Department, Chief Bill Lansdowne is known as the Chief who restored the"heart" to the department. His upbeat optimism and his commitment to providing excellent service to the community, are an inspiration to his entire staff.

   Chief Lansdowne joined the Department as a patrol officer in 1966 and was promoted to Sergeant in 1971 where he was assigned to the Patrol Division as a District Sergeant. He then went to the Detective Bureau where he investigated robbery, rape, and assault cases, and to the Vice Unit where he collaborated with the F.B. I and the I.R.S. in major investigations involving prostitution and gambling.

   In 1980, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and became a Patrol Division Commander commanding 75 officers handling calls for service on the midnight watch. His next assignment was the Internal Affairs Unit where he developed a program of early intervention for officers and taught Internal Affairs classes at the State level. He commanded the Narcotics and Homicide Units before being promoted to the rank of Captain in 1988.

   As Captain of the Records Department, he commanded 100 civilian personnel overseeing crime analysis , warrants, and the preparation of reports. He was then assigned to Field Operations where he commanded 150 sworn personnel.

   Chief Lansdowne was promoted to the rank of Deputy Chief in 1992 with a staff of 1000 employees where he began to implement community policing, developed a Gang Prevention Car Program and introduced a hot pursuit policy which resulted in a reduction in the number of pursuits.

   In 1994, as Assistant Chief, he was operational commander of 1275 sworn and 450 civilian personnel. He was responsible for a budget of $127 million and oversaw all four divisions of the Department.

   Chief Lansdowne left the San Jose Police Department in 1994 to become the Police Chief of Richmond, California, a diverse community of 93,000 where he reorganized the Department, reduced homicides by 50% and decreased overtime by $800,000 in two years. At Richmond, he continued his commitment to community policing and implemented effective violence reduction and truancy programs.

   In August of 1998, Chief Lansdowne returned to San Jose as Chief of Police where he currently commands a staff of 1,378 sworn officers and 723 civilian employees. He is committed to running a department that is progressive, internally healthy, open to public scrutiny and dedicated to working in partnership with the community.
