Do you want to be a part of the solution toward creating a safer city? You can start out by joining your local San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) station and SF SAFE for a monthly virtual community meeting. By participating in the meeting—and, in turn, community policing—you’ll not only get the latest safety news from your local captain and officers, but also the opportunity to discuss issues that are important to you.
On a monthly basis, the ten SFPD stations host a community meeting virtually on Zoom, and sometimes, also in-person in their district. The meetings usually take place on a consistent day (and usually, time) of the month on Zoom or at the police stations.
SFPD community meetings are usually run by the station’s captain and offer community members a chance to hear directly from their local station leadership about crime trends, police activities and safety-centric news, as well as a chance for them to discuss what’s on their mind.
Please note that this month, many of the SFPD community meetings will not be held in lieu of the holidays. Here is a note evocative of the messages from various station captains not holding meetings this month:
“Please be advised that we will not be hosting a community meeting during the month of December. Although these meetings provide a valuable and consistent opportunity to hear from all of you about your concerns for our community and for our staff to relay important public safety information. We have decided to forgo the next community meeting in preparation for the holidays. We look forward to restarting our calendar of community meetings with everyone in the new year, though in the meantime from all of us at the station, we wish you and your families a truly wonderful holiday season, and a very happy and healthy new year.”
