SFPD Responds to Officer Allegations 18-053

The San Francisco Police Department takes the allegations presented today very seriously. The department was made aware of these allegations in November, 2017 and immediately initiated an investigation. There are currently three ongoing investigations by SFPD and the City’s Department of Human Resources. SFPD will thoroughly investigate all alleged misconduct uncovered during these investigations which implicates any member of this department.

In the past three years, SFPD has implemented a number of measures to ensure all members of the public and our department are treated with respect and dignity. The department has instituted implicit bias and procedural justice training for all sworn and civilian members; implemented best practices recommendations from the U.S. Department of Justice; instituted electronic audits of communications; entered into agreements with academic partners to analyze vehicle stops and the use of force; and launched the Not On My Watch campaign to promote improved relations between officers and the public. We are committed to providing just, transparent, unbiased and responsive policing and will continue to build and maintain trust with the communities we serve.
