Remembering the Aughts: When Female SFPD Officers were Allowed to Wear Earrings and How They Violated Policy

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Here we go, a shot from 2009 on Market, from some protest. These two stood out. And I thought, can the popo wear earrings in Frisco?

And here’s your answer, or at least it was back during the earliest part of our current millennium:

5. JEWELRY AND ORNAMENTS (also see DGO 11.08, Grooming Standards).

On-duty officers shall not wear jewelry or personal ornaments that are visible except:

a. A wristwatch.

b. A total of 2 rings that are consistent with officer safety. An engagement and wedding ring set will be considered as one ring.

c. A conservative tie bar or tie tack.

d. Female officers may, in addition, wear the following:

1. Hair clips or pins that match the color of the hair.

2. One ear post in each ear. The post must lie flush with the ear and be plain metal, gold or silver colored. The face of the post is not to have a diameter of more than three-eighths (3/8) inch. Nothing shall hang from the post.

So that’s your answer, no danglies.

SFGov Shut Down 325 Kearny in February, Because It was So Unacceptable – Now, Meet 323 Kearny – “TABLE SHOWER?”

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

All right, here’s your background on “Queen’s Health Center.”

And here’s a quote:

“If a place says ‘table shower’ at least three times on the outside, you know” it’s not surprising that it’s a brothel

The joint looked like this:

So that was three long months ago. You can see what’s left in the upper right here. Horrible 325 Kearny is all gone. The space is now “AVAILABLE.” But check out neighboring 323 Kearny as of May 2017:

So who’s going to investigate this Watergate? Say, what’s CW Nevius doing these days? Somebody could approach him to say, “Pepper, you’re going undercover.” Then he can report back what TABLE SHOWER means, you know, like the etymology of this phrase I’ve never heard of…

Man, Bell, CA has a lot going on for being just a population 35,000 city, that’s for sure.

(Who knows, maybe SFPD detectives put on their badges and drive Frisco yoots down to SoCal, IDK.)

Better Know Your Bay Area Law Enforcement: The Glock 22-Equipped UNION PACIFIC POLICE – Modern-Day Pinkertons

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

I aint ever seen this, in all my years:

7J7C9619 copy

TMYK:

“Union Pacific maintains a functioning police department staffed with officers given the title of Special Agent with jurisdiction over crimes against the railroad. Like most railroad police, its primary jurisdiction is unconventional, consisting of 54,116 miles (87,091 kilometers) of track in 23 western U.S. states. Railroad police are certified state law enforcement officers with investigative and arresting powers both on and off railroad property if authorized by the state they are operating within. They also have interstate authority pursuant to federal law (Title 49, United States Code, Section 28101. Under Public Law 110-53 SEC. 1526. (RAILROAD SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS)), Railroad police powers have been expanded to include railroads other than the officer’s employing agency. All of the states in Union Pacific’s 23 state system authorize full police authority, except for Minnesota and Wyoming, which do not grant authority to railroad police at all. Special Agents typically investigate major incidents such as derailments, sabotage, grade crossing accidents and hazardous material accidents and minor issues such as trespassing on the railroad right of way, vandalism/graffiti, and theft of company property or customer product. In accordance with their duties, Special Agents have the ability to access the FBI’s NCIC database to run suspects and vehicles for wants and warrants, as well as criminal history checks.”
