The Controller's Office, City Services Auditor presents an interim report on the evaluation of the mandatory police foot patrols established by Administrative Code Section 10A.1. The purpose of the interim report is to discuss foot patrols from a historical, national and international perspective. The report also reviews lessons learned from foot patrols in five comparison jurisdictions and provides a high-level overview of the priority foot patrols in San Francisco established in response to the legislative mandate. A final report discussing the impact of the pilot foot patrol program on crime, department operations and community perceptions of safety will be issued early next year.
