“San Francisco Police Announce the Formation of a New Special Victims Investigations Unit
11-109

San Francisco Police Chief Gregory Suhr is proud to announce the formation of the first ever San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) Special Victims Unit (S.V.U.).

For the first time in SFPD history, various investigative units have been assembled in one office to focus on the sensitive nature of crimes where in the victims have suffered the effects of Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, Child Abuse & Exploitation or Sex Crimes. A majority of these victims are women, children or elderly.

Additional investigative assignments within the S.V.U. are: Human Trafficking, Stalking, Sexual Offender Registration Program, Financial Crimes and Missing Persons. The centralizing of these respective investigative disciplines will provide the public with better access to police and victims’ services. The “La Casa De Las Madres” advocate office is located in the S.V.U. office lobby. This in one example of the critical partnerships between the SFPD and the many victims advocates such as: Woman Against Rape, Institute of Aging, Trauma Recovery Center, San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center, W.O.M.A.N. Inc., Domestic Violence Consortium, Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach and S.F. Women Against Rape.”
