More than 1,000 pages of previously secret files from the San Francisco Police Department were released yesterday, thanks to the passage of a state law. 

Senate Bill 1421 mandates the release of police records involving officer shootings or instances of the police lying or being accused of sexual assault. The first batch of documents released includes a 2010 shooting in North Beach where an officer was found to have opened fire. 

Meanwhile, the SFPD announced yesterday that it'll be increasing the number of traffic cops out on patrol.
