      25-year San José Police Veteran Appointed Police Chief

       SAN JOSE, California – Following a nationwide search and an extensive
community and stakeholder engagement process, City Manager Debra Figone today
(2/1/11) appointed Acting Police Chief Chris Moore as San José’s 9th Chief of Police
since 1912.

       Moore, whose appointment was confirmed this morning by the City Council in
closed session, has been with the San José Police Department (SJPD) for 25 years. He
replaces Rob Davis who retired in November. Moore’s appointment is effective
immediately.

       “Chris Moore is the right person to lead the Police Department at this time in this
community,” Figone said in announcing the appointment. “I am confident in his ability
to rebuild trust between the community and the Department. With his character,
integrity, intellect, and long-time commitment to San Jose, Chris has the right motivation
and mix of skills to manage and stabilize the workforce and to be an excellent Chief of
Police for the residents of San Jose.”

          The recruitment process included an extraordinary community outreach effort.
 More than 1,200 community members participated in more some 40 meetings over
 several months. In addition, an online community survey generated 140 responses while
 nearly 270 Police Department employees responded to the Police Workforce Online
 Survey. From this effort a wealth of information was developed regarding the ideal
 characteristics, skills and experience needed in a new police chief, along with the issues,
 interests and concerns the new chief will need to confront.

          “I am both honored and humbled to have been chosen to lead the men and women
 of the San José Police Department,” Moore said of his appointment. “During the
 community meetings it became very clear that for many segments of the community, trust
 in the police department is at a low level. I have heard that message loudly and clearly
 and I am taking steps to begin bridging that gap.”

          Moore law enforcement career with the SJPD has been marked by a steady rise
 through the ranks, assuming greater leadership roles within the Department while
 participating in significant State and Federal law enforcement policy initiatives. While he
 most recently served as Assistant Chief of Police and Acting Chief of Police, he has also
 held Deputy Chief positions over the Bureau of Field Operations and the Bureau of
 Technical Services, and was Commander of Internal Affairs.

          He began his law enforcement career as a Patrol Officer in August 1985,
 promoting to Sergeant in 1993, Lieutenant in 1998, and Captain in 2006. His numerous
 assignments included Patrol, Patrol Administration, Street Crimes, Internal Affairs,
 Burglary, Community Services, Systems Development, Field Training and serving as
 department spokesperson.
