SAFETY & SECURITY RECOMMENDATIONS AND ALERTS

PATROL SPECIAL POLICE SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE

(08282010)

CONSIDER SPEAKING AT THE POLICE COMMISSION HEARING THIS WEDNESDAY.

Community Patrol USA has worked alongside the San Francisco Patrol Special Police organization, and many of their individual officers, for a number of years in many neighborhoods around the city of San Francisco, including South Beach, Castro and Glen Park. We respect, trust and greatly admire their work and dedication to the clients and neighborhoods they serve. Thus we were surprised to hear on the “grapevine” that a report by a Public Safety Strategies Group (PSSG), a research group out of Boston, MA commissioned by the SF Police Commission over two years ago, is expected to paint an entirely different opinion of this fine force of officers than the one we’ve come to know and trust.

There is even an expectation that the report, which is now more than one year overdue, may recommend the disbanding of the San Francisco Patrol Special Police organization entirely !

If you feel strongly about the value, effectiveness and need for this organization and these officers to be able to continue to serve and protect our neighborhoods and communities alongside the paid public police officers of the San Francisco Police Department, please consider attending the Police Commission meeting this Wednesday and sharing your thoughts with the Police Commissioners.

The report  is scheduled to be presented before the Police Commission this Wednesday at 05:30pm in City Hall, room 400 #1 Carlton B. Goodlett Place.
