About the SFPD Park Station
The Park District includes the vast eastern edge of Golden Gate Park and the world-famous neighborhoods of Haight-Ashbury and the Castro. It’s bordered by Geary Boulevard, Steiner, Market, Upper Market, 7th Avenue and the east end of the park.
The SFPD Park Station, reopened after a remodel in 1995, has a Mission-style façade with stucco walls and a tiled roof. It is set back from the street and surrounded by fences but can be reached from Kezar Drive, which runs through Golden Gate Park. This station is part of the San Francisco Police Department's Golden Gate Division.
Meet your Station Captain – Christopher Pedrini
Captain Chris Pedrini is a San Francisco Bay Area native who was raised in a family in which nine members, including his uncle and father, have been current or retired law enforcement officers. He was drawn to police work at an early age, he says, “because I wanted to help people by providing for their safety. It is a duty and responsibility I felt strongly about then and still feel strongly about today." He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in organizational leadership from Colorado State University and a master's degree in security studies from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.
Pedrini began his law enforcement career in 1990, serving in police departments in Half Moon Bay and Daly City before transferring to the SFPD in 1994. Since that time he has worked in uniformed patrol, plainclothes, investigations, risk management, administration and homeland security.
