SFPD Supports Mayor London N. Breed’s Economic Recovery Plan, Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s Future 23-017

Today, San Francisco Mayor London N. Breed delivered the State of the City Address and introduced her economic recovery plan for San Francisco—"Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s Future.”

Mayor Breed focused on building a cleaner, safer, and thriving city by highlighting five key priorities,

· An economically diverse and resilient job engine

· A welcoming clean and safe environment

· A dynamic destination active at all hours every day

· A world-class transportation experience

· An equitable economy that supports full participation by all

Recognizing the SFPD’s role in supporting these priorities, Mayor Breed will introduce a budget supplemental to the Board of Supervisors in the coming week to augment officer overtime. The supplemental will mitigate significant budget constraints impacting the Department’s severe staffing shortages and retention challenges. Providing this additional monetary allocation will support the necessary coordination with city departments, business, and community partnerships to address illegal drug sales, increased property, and violent crimes.

Officer overtime resources is a strategic investment that will enhance the city’s overall recovery plan by improving street conditions in San Francisco. Chief Scott states, “Sworn personnel overtime will add additional officer response to calls for service, increase efforts to disrupt illegal drug sales on our streets, and provide additional time for investigators to solve crimes. We appreciate and thank Mayor London Breed for her continuous support.”
