    An appreciation party was held on December 12 honoring SFPD’s Patrol Special Officer Cody Clements, who had previously announced that his last day in the position would be December 31, 2021. (He accepted a full-time position with another law enforcement agency outside of San Francisco.) Supervisor Rafael Mandelman presented a Certificate of Honor to Clements in celebration of his work over the past four years.

    The Patrol Special Officer position in the Castro has a storied history, given that it has been held by notable SFPD personnel including the late Jane Warner, for whom Jane Warner Plaza at the intersection of 17th and Castro is named, and John Fitzinger, who passed in 2017. All are wishing Clements the best for the next phase of his career.

    On December 13, the 15th Anniversary Party for the Castro Community on Patrol took place, honoring the organization’s critical work protecting the Castro’s streets in conjunction with SFPD’s Patrol Special Officer. Senator Scott Wiener and Supervisor Mandelman presented certificates to Patrol Special President Alan Byard and other members attending, including Leandro Gonzalez, Greg Carey, Brian Hill, Ken Craig, and Erin Lavery.
