San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne could be in the running to replace San Francisco’s police chief, who is retiring.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Lansdowne “may be interviewed” for the job.

He has an extensive Bay Area track record as the former chief in Richmond and in San Jose, where he began his career as an officer.

Lansdowne wouldn’t comment Sunday on whether he is interested, saying, “I’m really happy with where I am now.

“I think the world of Heather Fong; it’s a great city, and there’ll be a lot of very talented” candidates, Lansdowne said. “I hope they get someone with an international reputation who can provide them with a direction they’re looking for.”
