The January 6 siege of our nation's Capitol has shocked the country and set off alarm bells.
I wish to reassure you all that the San Francisco Sheriff’s Office will protect and safeguard against civil unrest that threatens our safety.
This includes our historic City Hall, and all public buildings and resources. Most importantly we’re here to protect the people who work in these buildings as well as the residents of our City.
Our staff receives and monitors intelligence reports at the local, state, and national level. We collaborate with other agencies to ensure that we have all the information necessary to be prepared with any threats to our community.
We support each other’s operations by providing mutual aid during emergency responses. San Francisco Sheriff’s deputies train, assess and plan for every risk to protect your safety.
While we do not expect the current civil unrest to spread to San Francisco, the San Francisco Sheriff’s Office stands ready for any event and will fulfill our mission to protect public safety.
