The San Francisco Police Department’s Recruitment Unit today released the second of three videos highlighting the daily work of the men and women of SFPD. The latest video, “A Day in the Life of a SFPD Foot Beat Officer,” features Tenderloin Station Officer Ryuto Suzuki and Officer Makoto Katsumoto, two bilingual officers who assist Tenderloin residents, workers and visitors to San Francisco.

“We’re creating these videos to provide a window into what police work looks like and to help people get to know the men and women performing this vital work in San Francisco,” said Sgt. Christina Serrano of SFPD’s Recruitment Unit. “Our goal is to pique the interest of people who may not have considered a career in law enforcement and give them insight into what the day-to-day experience is like for our talented, dedicated officers.”

A previous video, “A Day in the Life of an SFPD Patrol Officer” highlights the work of Mission Station Officer Laura Zasly, a former professional basketball player, and Officer Ari Smith-Russack, who grew up in the Mission district.
