On Wednesday, May 22, 2019 a daylong fugitive recovery operation in the Tenderloin Police District resulted in 61 arrests. Tenderloin Station officers led the operation and were assisted by San Francisco Sheriff’s Deputies, State Parole Agents, and officers from Southern Police Station.   Officers assigned to this operation did not use any reportable force to effect arrests and no officers or suspects were injured during the operation.      

61 were booked into the San Francisco County Jail.  Eighteen of the 61 suspects were wanted on outstanding arrest warrants issued by courts in San Mateo, Marin County, Alameda, Contra Costa County, San Bruno, CDC Parole, Pleasanton, Mountain View, Colma, Solano County, Sonoma County, San Jose, Palo Alto, and San Joaquin County.    

This operation is the latest in ongoing efforts led by Tenderloin Station to reduce crime and emphasize the San Francisco Police Department’s commitment to a safer, healthier community.   The Tenderloin is home to approximately 4,000 children who attend schools in the District and attend programs in neighborhood Recreation and Parks facilities.  The wellbeing of these children are a major factor in the Department’s commitment to removing this criminal element from the streets and sidewalks, on which these children travel.
