Capt. Jay Landsman Jr., the Towson precinct’s fourth commander in 22 months, hopes to bring the communication skills gleaned in two decades on the job and the policing background of a third-generation officer to his new role as Towson’s top cop.

“This is a great spot to be,” Landsman, who began on April 1, said during his whirlwind first week on the job. “I’m happy to be here, and I hope that comes across when I go to these community meetings. I think it’s a thriving community, just based on the calls and emails I’ve gotten so far. People are engaged. They care about what’s going on, and I’m going to do my best to make sure they’re getting what they need.”
