San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr launched a campaign aimed at rooting out potential bigotry and intolerance among San Francisco police officers by promoting diversity in recruitment, bias training, community involvement and a first-of-its-kind pledge that department officers have been making.
Preparing a 21st century police force
Making a difference for youth
Listening to local communities
Giving back to the community
Seeking diverse and qualified candidates
In San Francisco, diversity, equality and tolerance aren’t slogans- these values are a core part of our City’s identity. As Chief of the Police Department, I am proud to serve a city that welcomes, celebrates and defends people of different backgrounds and cultures.
San Francisco values are needed now more than ever. Across the country and even in the Bay Area, we are seeing disturbing reports of hate crimes and biased behavior. The public and law enforcement must stand together against such incidents.
