Over the years, the SFPD has become more equality focused with greater diversity on the force and in leadership positions – there are at least 4 OUT LGBT Police in positions of authority. I know that the Castro/Eureka Valley community is at the forefront of equality and diversity so our voices need to be heard in the selection of the next Police Chief to ensure the gains that have been made remain in place and to ensure equality and greater diversity, e.g. trans members, is represented on the SFPD. I encourage you to attend the February 24, 6PM to 8PM at the GLBT Center.
