Public Safety Building
The District Police Station plays an equally critical role in responding to the public safety needs of San Francisco residents. This station deploys the men and women working the front line – typically and especially after a major catastrophic event. As first responders, they maintain order during difficult situations and work cooperatively with other first responders, including the Fire Department and the Office of Chief Medical Examiner.
The Public Safety Building will also contain a fire station to serve the growing Mission Bay neighborhood, enhancing its response capability.
