SAN FRANCISCO—On April 29, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr noted in a press conference that the SF Police Department Internal Affairs Division initiated an investigation of an officer based on information from another member of the department.
The investigation started in summer 2015, which revealed that a police officer made false representations on a Department of Motor Vehicles Confidentiality form (DMV INV 32 form).
On April 29, 2016, Saqib Aslam, 29, of South San Francisco, surrendered himself and was booked at San Francisco County Jail for one felony count of Filing a False Document (115(a) PC) and one felony count of Perjury (118(a) PC).
The SFPD Internal Affairs office worked with the investigation, with help from the District Attorney’s Office. Aslam, a nine-year veteran of the SFPD, has been placed on suspension without pay.
Suhr indicated that 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 Mayor Edward M. Lee and Chief Suhr have emphasized, SFPD 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.
