Castro says goodbye to SF Patrol Special Police

Reading now: 183

The Castro neighborhood will soon be without a San Francisco Patrol Special Police officer for the first time in over four decades.

Cody Clements, a 29-year-old straight ally, announced that his last day will be December 31, as the Bay Area Reporter previously reported, because he has been hired by another law enforcement agency "up north." The Patrol Special Police were formed in 1847, prior to the San Francisco Police Department, when it was included in the city charter.

Each beat is a privately-owned and -funded business (new officers do have to be hired through the SFPD and the police commission, however).
