Report: Double-dipping despite pension reform efforts


According to the San Jose Mercury News, former San Jose Police Chief William Lansdowne is one of the state's biggest beneficiaries of double-dipping. He's earning a total of $400,000 a year in retirement pay from San Jose, along with his salary as San Diego's police chief.

And he's not alone. Former Redwood City Police Chief Louis Cobarruviaz grossed $350,000 last year by double-dipping from a San Jose pension.

In Contra Costa County, retiring Clayton Police Chief Daniel Lawrence combined his salary with a Contra Costa County pension, earning a total of $282,000 last year.
