William went to Boston Technical High School, from which he matriculated in 1965. After that, he joined the Military Police Corps, a law enforcement branch of the United States Army, at the midst of the Vietnam War.

Five years later, he returned to his native Boston and joined the Boston Police Department. In 1975 he became a sergeant and then three years later he was promoted to lieutenant. Thanks to his devotion, William rose in ranks quite quickly, and as a result he became the youngest-ever Executive Superintendent of the Boston Police, the department’s second-highest post in 1980, when he was 32 years old. Unfortunately, after an interview with a journalist in which he spoke about his ambitions of becoming the Police Commissioner, William was stripped down from his position and was reassigned as the Inspector of Bureaus. After a while, he was brought back to the police station, but this time only to handle labor relations and 9-1-1 related issues.

William never gave up his ambitions, although his thoughtless remarks set him back almost a decade. However, he became Chief of Police for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority in 1983, and held the position until 1986, after which he was appointed as Superintendent of Boston’s Metropolitan District Commission Police. He eventually became 34th Police Commissioner of Boston, which he held from 30th June 1993 until 1st January 1994.

Back in 1990, he joined New York City Transit Police, and in 1994 became city’s 38th Commissioner of the New York City Police Department. Supported by the then mayor Rudy Giuliani, the two worked on putting into practice the controversial broken windows theory, which helps prevent small crimes such as public drinking, vandalism and other petty crimes. Also, he was the one to start the CompStat system for tracking crimes in the city. However, William resigned from his position in 1996, as he was apparently under investigation for several minor misuses of his position, but the real reason he was under investigation was the fact that he and Giuliani’s relationship became strained, as William was receiving more credit than the mayor.

After New York, William moved to Los Angeles where he initially worked with Kroll Associates as a private consultant. Then in 2002, he was appointed as the LAPD’s 54th Chief of Police. Thanks to his great work, the crime rate fell down every year during which he was the Chief of Police, so in 2007 he was re-appointed to a new five-year term, which hadn’t happened in the last 20 years. However, he served in position only until 2009, after which he focused on other ventures, including improving the relationship between USA and UK police departments. He was also in talks with David Cameron, UK Prime Minister to become their Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis of London, however, the then Home Secretary Theresa May, ruled of their suggestion, since she insisted that they should appoint British citizen. Nevertheless, William received the honorary title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, for his devotion to improving cooperation between US and UK police.

In 2012 he set off to Oakland, where he served as a consultant for the city, but then in 2013 he returned to New York, and from 2014 to 2016 was the Police Commissioner.

Thanks to his distinguished career, William has received several honorary degrees, including a Bachelor of Science in Law Enforcement from the University of Massachusetts, an honorary degree from New York Institute of Technology, while he was also a research fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University.

Regarding his personal life, William has been married four times. His fourth wife is Rikki Klieman, an attorney and Tru TV analyst, who he married in 1999. He has one son from one of his previous marriages and was married to an attorney and Boston Police spokeswoman and newscaster Cheryl Fiandaca.
