San Francisco Police Department: 1 by John Garvey


The officers of the San Francisco Police Division could be the first to tell you that police work on this metropolis is nothing like Soiled Harry, The Streets of San Francisco, or Nash Bridges. It's a gritty reality, occasionally infused with glamour, but always characterised with the aid of the innovation and unusual proceedings found as a matter after all in this distinctive city. The division was once based in 1849, when the population surge from the Gold Rush created a desperate need for legislation enforcement. An preliminary 35-member force was shaped to give protection to over 20,000 residents. Given that then, the SFPD has presided over infamous situations, together with the case of the Zodiac Killer, Zebra Murders, the Patty Hearst Hibernia Financial institution robbery, the 1975 assassination try on President Gerald Ford, and the Golden Dragon Restaurant and one zero one California Street Massacres. Whereas the SFPD story features a grotesque and every now and then scandalous past, its devoted officers continue to provide a favorable and priceless carrier to the varied metropolitan group of San Francisco.
