SFPD Online Community Meeting Registration

Update March 11th:
We submitted a disclosure request in October, 2022 for a copy of the Zoom meeting.
SFPD did not respond in a timely manner so a complaint was filed with the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force (SOTF) in November, 2022.
In January 2023 the matter went to a hearing before the SOTF.
We’re still in communications on this matter and will prompt you of any updates.
Listen to our latest podcast episode for an update.

While many of us since Covid have gotten settled with online Zoom meetings, SFPD has continued to require meeting registration rather than include meeting info with the event listing/promotion. Richard in recent months has repeatedly asked to have the link sent to HVSafe so we can share with our members via our community communications. We believe providing people a readily available link (bypassing the need to register in advance) would foster more participation. This request to date has not been addressed.

Last week during the SFPD Northern Station meeting Richard was addressed in a condescending manner by the Director of SFSafe (*SFSafe is a non profit that hosts and controls SFPD community meetings) on this topic. She made the following statement: the Federal Government requires registration/sign in sheets.

This revelation has left us both puzzled and concerned.

Last week Richard made multiple efforts to obtain a copy of the meeting recording.

We’re drilling down on this matter. More updates to follow.
