About

About the SFPD Northern Station

The Northern Station District is one of the city’s most diverse and densely populated jurisdictions, including many high-occupancy dwellings such as large apartment buildings, senior citizens’ residences, residential hotels, and public housing complexes. It encompasses several distinct neighborhoods, including the Civic Center, Western Addition, Hayes Valley, Japantown, Cathedral Hill, Polk Gulch, Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow and the Marina. It’s also a favored location for street fairs and cultural celebrations, including the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival, Cherry Blossom Festival, Union Street Fair, Clusterfest Comedy Expo, SF Pride Celebration, Bay to Breakers, Fleet Week and the symphony and opera Openings.   

The district boundaries are Larkin Street, Market Street, Divisadero Street to Broadway and west on Broadway to the Presidio. On the north, it is bounded by the San Francisco Bay.  

The SFPD Northern station, on the corner of Fillmore and Turk, is a distinctive, low-slung building with turquoise-tiled walls and a light green door.  This station is part of the San Francisco Police Department's Metro Division.
