About

About the SFPD Southern Station

The SFPD’s Southern District extends south from Mission Street to Mariposa Street and east to the Bay. It encompasses the Ferry Building, the South of Market area, the Embarcadero, China Basin and Mission Bay. 

The district was once a mostly industrial area, but in recent years has flourished with new restaurants and bars. It’s also a center of residential development, the home of the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park and the future home of the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center. As of 2015, the Southern District has also been home to the SFPD administrative offices within the new Public Safety Building in Mission Bay. 

The original Southern station was a shack located at 4th and Clara streets. After being destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, it reopened in 1926 as an elaborate Spanish Baroque style building designed by Albert Coffey.  In 1961, Southern Station was relocated to the first floor of the Hall of Justice, and in 2015 moved once again, this time into the new Public Safety Building at 1251 3rd Street. This station is part of the San Francisco Police Department's Metro Division.
