San Francisco Police Department

The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has two divisions; Metro Division and Goldengate Division. Within those divisions, they have 10 police stations located throughout the city.

The SFPD main headquarters is located at 850 Bryant St., in the San Francisco Hall of Justice and is also known as the Southern Station. This particular station serves as San Francisco’s head court, as well as all court and county jail facilities.

The San Francisco Police Department is an individual entity on its own and shouldn’t be considered the same as the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department primary responsibility is the operation of all the jails within the city and considered a different law enforcement agency all together.

With the SFPD being ranked as the 11th biggest police department within the United States, it is not unusual for them to service an approximate population of 1.2 million people. In addition, they will serve millions of visitors and tourists who frequent the city to enjoy San Francisco’s unique attractions.

It all started in 1849 when the SFPD began to evolve into a cutting-edge law enforcement department. During the 1900s, the SFPD was the first to introduce fingerprinting and employing minorities within their staff. The SFPD is known for having one of the toughest reputations when it comes to dealing with serious crimes.

The SFPD has executed many successful programs that have resulted in a down-turn in crime within the area. One of the programs, The Shot Spotter Gunshot Detection System, blankets three miles of the Mission area and covers an additional 15 miles of the Tenderloin and Potrero Hill area. Additionally, their “violence reduction plan” enforces gang injunctions, court orders, as well as bringing suspects into custody after a bench warrant has been issued.

San Francisco Jails

When someone is arrested at one of the SFPD Stations, they will have to go through a booking, intake and processing procedures. Once that is completed, they will then be taken to one of the San Francisco County Jails, which is handled by the Sheriff’s Department Custody Division. The transporting of inmates from the SFPD stations to the County jail only happens every two to four hours.

The jail system handles roughly 55,000 bookings each year and is made up of eight jails. There are a total of 800 deputy sheriffs who handle all the booking and processing at these locations. Most often, those arrested will be taken to the Bryant Street Jail due to it being at the Hall of Justice.

If you need assistance with locating someone who has been arrested, or need to know additional jail information, please call Tonya Page Bail Bonds at our toll-free number, 1-877-861-3761, (1-877-861-3761). We are available 365-days a year, day or night.
