Police Beat

Police Beat – Capt. Paul Yep

On to next assignment


Dear Richmond District residents and merchants:

It was an honor and pleasure to serve as the commanding officer

of the Richmond Police Station for the past year. Your

support of the officers assigned to your neighborhood resulted in

reduced crime rates and improved the quality of life in the Richmond District.

Overall, we started to see a reduction in auto burglaries, made incredible

arrests of several serial commercial and residential burglars and provided services

to the homeless and less fortunate. We also successfully managed huge crowds of visitors

during the Bay to Breakers race and the Outside Lands Music and Arts and

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festivals.


I want to thank former SF Supervisor Eric Mar, SF Supervisor Sandra Fewer, SF

Supervisor Mark Farrell, as well as all the members of the

Richmond Community Police Advisory Board, Traci Teraoka,

Richmond Station CPAB cochair, David Heller of the Geary

Boulevard Merchants’ Association and Richard Corriea of the Planning Association for

the Richmond (PAR) for their support and commitment to the

safety of everyone in the district.


Finally, I want to thank all of the officers assigned to the

Richmond Police Station for their hard work and dedication to

their community. I was impressed by their unwavering devotion

to serve all of you.


San Francisco Police Capt. Paul Yep has been transferred to

the Central Police Station, where he has taken over as the

station’s commanding officer.
