The Chief of the SFPD reports that since the shelter in place order, calls for service have been down 25%. SFPD officers have been ordered to patrol neighborhoods to prevent looting, although none has occurred as of yet. Chief Scott also stated that there have been no reports of hate crimes against Asian-Americans during this time of rising anti-Asian sentiment, but emphasized that “if those types of crimes are happening, we really need people to report them so that we can investigate them thoroughly.”
