Why do we need to strengthen, improve and rehabilitate district police stations and facilities
The San Francisco Police Department is increasing its staff to meet the changing needs of the City. This presents a challenge to the Police Department’s district stations and support facilities as they were built for a smaller police force and lack adequate space for the current staffing level.
Some police stations are nearly a century old and many renovations were implemented more than 25 years ago. There is an urgency to make improvements to police facilities to bolster their resiliency in the event of an earthquake. Most don't meet current seismic codes for essential facilities.
The stations and support facilities have a broad range of functional, security, technical and seismic inadequacies. Since their inception, many have operated continuously and are in need of modernization. Putting off these improvements can hinder police capabilities in responding to emergencies.
