By Andrew Segal   Several members of CAPS attended the last SFPD Taraval Station's Captain Denise Flaherty Security Meeting at the West Portal Library. Here are some key take-aways:
  • Sadly, due to the events in Dallas and elsewhere in our nation, the SFPD is taking extra precautions for officer safety.  They have suspended plainclothes operations, cut back on foot patrols, and are working in pairs at a minimum.
  • The SFPD is implementing a body camera program and training officers in de-escalation.
  • There has been a recent modest decline in auto burglaries but an increase in home burglaries.
