SAN FRANCISCO —Back in April, San Francisco Police Department Police Chief Greg Suhr announced during a press conference that an internal affairs probe had been launched after allegations of time fraud involving an officer based on information that was given by a Department source.

According to a press release from the SFPD, on Monday, May 16, Dean K. Lee, 41, of Daly City surrendered himself and was booked at the San Francisco County Jail for one count of grand theft and four counts of defrauding a government agency (all felonies). Lee is a 15-year veteran of the Department and has been placed on suspension without pay.

The SFPD Internal Affairs office worked with the District Attorney’s office during the 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,” states the release.

As San Francisco Mayor Edward M Lee and Chief Suhr have emphasized, Department members are expected to continue to hold each other accountable and will act swiftly to report any behavior that might bring dishonor to the SFPD and the city of San Francisco. The SFPD would like to thank the District Attorney’s office for their help during the investigation.
