Our community deserves a SFPD that is accountable, responsive, and fully staffed. But that’s not what we’ve been getting. Many residents have given up reporting the multiple crimes they’re victims of or witness because they lack faith in SFPD’s willingness or ability to respond.
With crimes in D9 17% less likely to end in arrest or citation than in neighboring D8 despite sharing the same Mission SFPD station, City Hall’s status quo is failing and endangering us.
D9 is demanding immediate action on quality-of-life issues affecting us, our neighbors, and our small businesses. We must prioritize our public safety, so every resident feels safe and secure walking our neighborhood streets, our community parks, and in our homes.
Trevor’s Plan to Deal With Encampments:
➔ Support the City Attorney’s efforts to allow the City to move those unwilling to accept shelter and services so we can lead with compassion while ensuring safe and clean streets.
➔ Better coordinate DPW staff to have regular, consistent, and responsive street and sidewalk cleaning.
➔ Enforce sanitation and fire code violations in tents to prevent disease and disaster.
➔ Reestablish and enforce pre-COVID RV parking limits to ensure residential vehicles are operable and allow effective street cleaning.
Trevor’s Plan for Addiction and Mental Health:
➔ Pursue the Addiction and Mental Health Housing and Recovery Complex (link to Homelessness Plan or page)
➔ Redefine the success of city and nonprofit addiction services to be based on the number of people moved off the streets and into addiction treatment rather than solely on harm reduction standards.
➔ Fully implement Governor Newsom’s CARE Courts in San Francisco.
➔ Update conservatorship laws to protect those who are a danger to themselves and others.
➔ End public drug markets and arrest and arrest fentanyl dealers.
➔ Combine the multiple mental health and addiction crisis response teams into a single unit.
Trevor’s Plan to Combat Human Trafficking:
➔ Prioritize the arresting of pimps and Johns to discourage human trafficking and sexual abuse, increase SFPD sting operations.
➔ Punish Johns in the traditional criminal justice system with arrests and jail time instead of a slap on the wrist citation or “John School.”
➔ Refocus outreach to the sex worker community with job training and economic empowerment instead of the narrow vision of harm reduction only.
➔ Meet individual neighborhood demands for increased street lighting and cameras.
