City of Albany, Oregon - News Release: Interim Police Chief Hired [cached]
William S. "Bill" Kinch will begin work Monday, October 17, 2005, as interim Chief of Police for the Albany Police Department, City Manager Wes Hare announced today.
Kinch, 56, retired in 2003 after 32 years with the Salem Police Department, where he rose through the ranks from Police Officer to Deputy Chief. He served in the U.S. Army Military Police at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, and Fort Lewis, Washington, for three years, two of them as sergeant, before joining the Salem Police Department.
At Salem, Kinch worked on all types of cases and supervised every section and division in the department. He has had more than 3,000 hours of training in crime prevention, community policing, major incident management, special weapons and tactics (SWAT) supervision, hostage negotiations, and managing criminal and narcotics investigations.
He holds an associate of science degree in law enforcement from Lane Community College, a bachelor of science in law enforcement, with a minor in psychology, from Western Oregon State University, and an executive certificate from the Oregon Board on Public Safety Standards and Training.
Kinch describes himself as an experienced police officer with a reputation for honesty and integrity, and considers the greatest accomplishment of his career to be "the acceptance and respect I have consistently received from my superiors and subordinates and from the public we served."
Kinch is expected to serve as interim chief while Hare conducts a search for a permanent replacement.
