Policing / Public Safety

We need safe streets, but we also need a policing model that is truly respectful of our community. I know that the vast majority of officers are good and honorable people whose only desire is to serve our community and keep our families safe, however, there are serious problems that need to be addressed. It’s unacceptable that people of color must go into any interaction with officers concerned for their safety and well-being. We need an overhaul of the department and the way it trains its officers. We need officers that are a part of the community they serve. We need an end to a cycle of violence by officers that shouldn’t exist anywhere, let alone San Francisco.
