RICHMOND STATION FOOT BEAT OFFICERS
Richmond Station has several Police Officers assigned to walking patrols, or “Foot Beats.” These Officers are dedicated to specific areas of the Richmond District, and you may see these Foot Beat Officers as they patrol along Geary St., Clement St., Laurel Village, The Cliff House and inside Golden Gate Park.
Foot Beat Officers are on patrol to prevent to various crimes, including auto break-ins (what we in the SFPD refer to as “auto-boosts”). There has been an increase in auto boosts across The City and we have put more Officers on foot patrol to serve as both a visual deterrent to thieves, and to be in a position where they can apprehend offenders.
Remember, we are YOUR police department, so if you see an Officer in your area, don’t hesitate to ask questions, raise concerns you may have with your neighborhood, or just say “Hi!”
