On July 15, 2020 CMUASF Received an respond letter from the Mayor’s Office regarding to the non-criminal responds:
Thank you for contacting the Office of Mayor London N. Breed and I completely understand your concerns. Please see detailed answers to your questions below. In addition, I have cc’d the Mayor’s Advisor on Public Safety if you have any further questions.
1. Please clarify what is mean by non-criminal responds.
Thank you for your question. There are many social problems and crimes that we ask the police to deal with right now. The police respond to more than half a million calls for service every year. 50% of those calls are for non-emergency, low-priority situations where there is no active crime, no threat of harm to people or property, and no suspect. Examples of this type of call are for noise complaints, towing of parked cars in people’s driveways, and loitering.
There are also about 7-8% of the total number of calls that police are answering about people who are suffering from a mental health crisis. These may or may not involve a threat of violence or injury.
Finally, there are also a large group of calls about people who may be without housing. Again, we ask the police to be the answer to all of these situations when there are people lying in doorways and refusing to leave or using the sidewalks in a way that pushes everyone else off the sidewalk and unsafely into the street or even stealing food or other items from small businesses.
My goal is to have a quicker and improved response to these situations as well as the situations that involve violent crimes and serious injuries or even deaths.
With the limited number of police officers that we have right now in the department, police should be prioritizing serious, violent, and emergency situations that they are trained to handle and that cannot be handled by anyone who is not a trained officer.
By freeing the police from having to answer calls for non-emergency, low-priority, non-violence situations, police officers will be able to respond more quickly and spend more of their time on the crimes where people or property have been hurt or are potentially at risk of being harmed.
This does NOT mean that we ignore the calls for help for all the other situations. It does mean that the City, with the community, will be creating other models that can be more effective at responding to these types of calls. Until those new models are ready, the police will continue to be the first responders for all calls.
2. How will this reform affect police presence in Chinatown?
None of these reforms will immediately affect police presence anywhere in the City, including Chinatown. We have a lot of planning to do before any changes are made in the calls that police respond to and which ones they do not. Again, until we have a replacement model of response that will meet the needs of residents, workers, visitors, and business owners, our police department will continue to be the first responders for all the same calls that they are answering now.
Eventually, the goal is for Chinatown to see better, more effective response from the City to situations like the ones you describe in your letter, such as petty theft , which is a crime, and homelessness, which is not a crime. In the future, the response may not be by armed police officers but that does not mean that the response will be worse. The goal is to design a public safety response system that is better than the one we have now, when low-priority and non-emergency calls often are answered by police only after long delays because there is such a high number of calls for service and a limited number of police officers to answer.
Hiring more police officers is not the answer and we know this because we have been trying to recruit and hire more officers for several years, with very limited success. Even when we have tried to hold more academy classes, we have not been able to fill those classes.
3. When non-violence transitions into violence, what should we do?
Any emergency situation that involves violence should be called into 9-1-1 just as you have always done. Again, there are no changes right now. We are in the planning stages only.
4. If crimes do not decrease in Chinatown following the reform, how will you take action to protect our community?
My office, the Police Department, and the Chief of Police, are all committed to public safety throughout the entire city of San Francisco. It is time to invest in the best, most effective crime prevention strategies, and not just responding to crime after it has already happened. We will always work with the community to constantly improve how this City serves the people and communities that live, work, and visit here.
Feel free to reach out with any further questions or concerns,
Supervisor of Community Affairs
City & County of San Francisco
