The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has been the subject of eight studies of its operations and functions over the last several years. The studies include: a comprehensive organizational assessment, an evaluation of foot patrol, an analysis of police district boundaries, an information technology (IT) strategic review and plan, a report on community policing, the offering of a community peace plan, a plan to improve the department's efforts to consistently provide fair and impartial policing and an evaluation of the department's use of cameras to monitor public space. These documents offer more than 350 recommendations for changes in the operations of the SFPD. In response to the studies, the SFPD proposes to enact the recommendations that further the newly adopted Vision Statement through changes in policy, procedures and a phased implementation of the district based recommendations. The links above will take you to reports, presentations on these reports and implementation updates.

The Vision Statement, reports, presentations, and implementation documentation are available for download.
