UCSF Popo Enter the Tenderloin – “UC Hastings Entering Public Safety Partnership with UCSF Police

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

I had missed this news, but you can’t miss all the new UCSF vehicles on McAllister these days. Changing things was quite a big issue earlier this year. Anyway:

“Affected members of the UC Hastings Public Safety officer’s unit have been presented various employment options if they meet required qualifications, as police officers, security guards, or security guard supervisors for the UCSF Police Department. For officers who do not qualify (or elect to not apply) for jobs with the UCSF Police Department or alternative positions with UC Hastings, the College will offer conscientious separation terms.”


So that’s that – the oldest and largest law school in the West is now a little closer to the UC Family.

Nobody was watching so I was going to swipe a couple of boxes and then sell these pork rinds as “nickel bags” on Divisadero. “Paleo-approved,” I was going to shout at passers-by. But then I remembered – Meat is Murder.

Does this building represent the “revitalization* of the Tenderloin,” or the opposite?


“Even if these improvements can be made [and oh, they were, to the tune of $18 million or so], one must ask if it is worth the trouble. The building will still be sitting in the middle of the worst of Mid-Market.”
