Fugitive Recovery Operation in Tenderloin District Leads to 73 Arrests 19-101
On Wednesday, August 7th 2019, a six-hour operation in the Tenderloin Police District resulted in 73 arrests. Sixty-seven of those suspects were booked into San Francisco County Jail last night. Tenderloin Station officers led the operation and were assisted by San Francisco Sheriff’s Deputies, State Parole Agents, and officers from Southern Station.
Fugitives wanted on outstanding arrest warrants issued by courts in San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Rohnert Park, Burlingame, Alameda, Colma, Contra Costa County, Palo Alto, Berkeley, and CDC Parole, were arrested and booked. The warrants were issued for a variety of offenses including narcotics, aggravated assaults, burglary, contempt of court, theft, sex offenders, domestic violence, fraud, and parole violations. No officers or suspects were injured during the course of these arrests.
This effort is the latest in ongoing operations led by Tenderloin Station designed to reduce crime and to 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 community and attend programs in neighborhood parks. These children are a major factor in the Department’s commitment to removing this criminal element from the streets and sidewalks these children travel to and from school.
