San Francisco Police Officer Arrested Following Internal Affairs Probe


As discussed by Chief Greg Suhr in a press conference Friday, April 29, 2016, the San Francisco Police Department Internal Affairs Division initiated an investigation of an officer based on information provided by another Department member. This investigation, which began in the summer of 2015, revealed a police officer made false representations on a Department of Motor Vehicles Confidentiality form (DMV INV 32 form).

On April 29, 2016, Saqib Aslam, 29 years old, South San Francisco resident, surrendered himself and was booked at San Francisco County Jail for one felony count of Filing a False Document (115(a) PC) and one felony count of Perjury (118(a) PC). The SFPD Internal Affairs office worked with and provided the completed investigation to the District Attorney’s Office. Aslam, a nine year veteran of the Department, has been placed on suspension without pay.

The public’s trust is of the utmost importance to the members of the SFPD and the Department will continue to work hard to build and maintain this trust. As San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and Chief Suhr have emphasized, Department members will continue to hold each other accountable and will act swiftly to report any behavior that might bring dishonor to the Police Department and the City of San Francisco.

The San Francisco Police Department thanks the District Attorney’s office for their assistance during this investigation.
