The San Francisco Police Commission has begun the process of selecting nominees to submit to Mayor Edwin Lee for the position of Chief of Police for the San Francisco Police Department. The Commission invites public participation in this process, including input from the public on preferred qualities and characteristics for the next Chief of Police.
Members of the public are welcome to provide public comment at the Commission’s regularly scheduled meetings, and to submit written materials to the Commission.
In addition, the Commission has scheduled three community events where Commissioners will meet with members of the public and listen to input regarding the qualities and characteristics sought in the next Chief of Police. Two or three Commissioners will attend each event, which are scheduled on the following dates at the following locations:
