San Francisco Police Department Statement on Orlando Shooting

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Orlando, and with the families and friends of those who have been injured and killed. While there are no known threats to San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department will be increasing police presence in places of high public concentration including shopping, transit, and entertainment areas, the City's Castro District and LGBT venues as well our mosques to ensure safety for everyone. 

The San Francisco Police Department has been meeting with SF Pride organizers for months to discuss safety and security for Pride Weekend. There are additional meetings scheduled in the weeks leading up to the event. The Department is working with our State and Federal law enforcement partners and our number one priority for Pride is planning for safety and security at the event. 

As always, we remind the public, "If you see something, say something!"
