SAN FRANCISCO—A San Francisco Police Department Police Officer was arrested on January 8, 2018 on charges of sexual assault after the SFPD Internal Affairs Criminal Division was alerted of off-duty criminal conduct.

In September 2017, officials were notified of possible off duty criminal conduct committed by SFPD officer, Justin McCall, 30, of San Francisco. He was removed from his assignment in the Field Operations Bureau and assigned to a nonpublic contact position. After completing its investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for McCall who is a four year veteran of the Department at 1:00 p.m. He was booked at the San Francisco County Jail on the charges of sexual assault when the victim is prevented from resisting by an intoxicating substance, and for sexual assault of a victim who was unconscious or asleep. He has been suspended without pay.

The San Francisco Police Department has thanked the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office for its assistance during this investigation.

“The public’s trust is of the utmost importance to the members of the SFPD and the Department will continue to work hard to build and maintain this trust. As San Francisco Police Chief William Scott has stated, Department members will continue to hold each other accountable and will act swiftly to report any behavior that might bring dishonor to the police department and the City of San Francisco,” the SFPD stated in a press release.
