The Police Department under the leadership of Chief Greg Suhr has brought our City’s violent crime rate to historic lows and implemented innovative crime prevention and community policing strategies to make neighborhoods safer. And it will be my challenge, and my commitment, to make sure that our City’s first responders stay and live in San Francisco by building housing that is affordable to our workforce and working families.
