Bill Fraass Promoted to Police Captain
The Sausalito Police Department is pleased to announce the promotion of Lieutenant Bill Fraass to captain. Bill began his career with the Sausalito Police in 1996 as a reserve officer, then became a full-time officer in 1997. From 2003 to 2006, he served as the department's only detective. He was subsequently promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2007 and lieutenant in 2016.
Bill holds a master's degree in criminal justice from Aspen University and is a graduate of the 269th session of the FBI National Academy. His accomplishments in Sausalito include developing and overseeing the City's Waterfront Management Plan, serving as the City's emergency services manager, supervising the marine patrol unit, and creating a mobile showers program. Bill is the recipient of the United States Coast Guard Meritorious Public Safety Award, the Sausalito Police Department's Blue Star and Life Saving medals, and the Marin County Peace Officers' Association Award for Heroic Action.
The position of police captain has been vacant since Chief John Rohrbacher assumed command of the department in 2016. At that time, the department's command structure was temporarily changed from one captain and one lieutenant to two lieutenants.
In his new role, Captain Fraass will serve as the second in command of the police department and provide administrative direction over the programs and activities of the department.
