SAN FRANCISCO—Officials from the San Francisco Police Department arrested more than 70 people during a fugitive recovery operation in the Tenderloin Police District on April 3. The SFPD reported that officers from the Tenderloin Station led the operation and were helped by San Francisco Sheriff’s Deputies, State Parole Agents, and officers from Southern Police Station. Officers assigned during the operation did not use any reportable force to enforce arrests and no officers or suspects were injured during the operation.
Sixty-seven people of the seventy arrested were booked at the San Francisco County Jail. The other three individuals were taken to local hospital for medical treatment. Fifty of the seventy suspects had outstanding arrest warrants issued by courts in San Francisco County, San Mateo County, Siskiyou County, Fremont, San Bernardino County, CDC Parole, Redwood City, Pleasanton, Contra Costa County, Alameda County, Santa Rosa, Eureka, Pleasant Hill, San Juaquin County, Belmont, and Napa County.
The focus of the operation was to decrease crime and showcase the SFPD’s commitment to a safer, healthier community. The Tenderloin District is home to over 4,000 children who attend schools in the area and attend programs in neighborhood Recreation and Parks facilities.
“The wellbeing of these children are a major factor in the Department’s commitment to removing this criminal element from the streets and sidewalks these children travel to and from school,” said the SFPD in a press release.
