One full year after a working group tasked with reform sent suggestions to SFPD on its Policy Prohibiting Biased Policing, higher-ups in the police department sent back their revisions.  The working group’s call for officers to freely and proactively offer their name, badge number, and other identifying information was altered with a phrase - “Upon request.”

Assistant Chief Toney Chaplin has said that the working group will sit down again to review the suggested revisions.
