Video from SFPD Officer’s Body Worn Camera – December 1, 2017 Officer Involved Shooting
As part of our efforts to increase transparency and accountability to the people of San Francisco, the San Francisco Police Department began the use of Body Worn Camera (BWC) technology in 2016. The use of these devices is intended to document statements and events during the course of an incident, promote officer safety and increase trust by creating an impartial record of interactions between officers and the public.
Pursuant to 6254(f) of the Cal Government Code, portions of Body Worn Camera (BWC) video are being released consistent with the Department’s BWC Policy.
This video is footage recorded by a San Francisco Police officer's body worn camera, showing the SFPD response to a reported robbery and carjacking that began at 1800 23rd Street. This incident began on Friday, December 1, 2017 at approximately 10:30am.
The release of this video and other information is not to be understood to provide any evidence that a conclusion has been reached in this investigation. As with all evidence, video evidence from body worn cameras may contribute to an understanding of an event or interaction, but to fully understand an encounter or an event, other evidence is always necessary.
This is an active and ongoing investigation in the early stages. All information is preliminary. Separate investigations are being conducted by the SFPD Homicide Detail, Internal Affairs Division, the SF District Attorney’s Independent Investigations Bureau and the Department of Police Accountability (DPA).
