Greg Suhr is a 32-year veteran of the San Francisco Police Department who was selected as San Francisco’s 42nd Chief of Police on April 27, 2011. He firmly believes in the idea that the Police Department exists to serve the needs of our customers – those who live, work, visit and play in our beautiful city. That belief serves as the foundation for many of the changes Chief Suhr has implemented this past year, beginning with allowing any member of the public access to the Chief’s Office . It is not enough to talk about being open and accessible, public officials must actually be open and accessible. He believes that peace officers have a unique opportunity to help children growing up in make the right choices.
