2:01 am
commissioner koppel aye, melgar aye moore aye richards aye. so moves that passes unanimously 4-0. commissioners that places on item 17 m or 2016-006-8339 drm eight 160 killed or restrict mandatory discretionary review. commissioners had - excuse me - we have additional business of you could please, outside the chambers, please. commissioners please note after hearing public comment on december 1 the commission voted to continue this item with direction from the commission i
2:02 am
vote of 4-2. commissioners johnson and koppel voted against. commissioner hillis was absent. >> good evening commissioners michael christiansen department staff. the item before you is an application for mandatory dr of a building permit to establish a medical cannabis dispensary propose that 160 golden st. the item is heard by the planning commission on december 1 2016 and continued to this urinate after public comment was close. the project site is looking with messrs. arts and light industrial zoning district and 40-55 x bowl dish. the project also seeks to permit up to for delivery only mcd medical cannabis dispensaries, within
2:03 am
the space each operating out of individual suites within the shared space. these entities would occupy the entire property replacing a vacant office and warehouse space the last time the project others met with neighboring residents to just their concerns with the project in a proposed conditions of approval to reduce impact to neighboring residents and businesses. the condition seeks to ensure security of the site limited traffic impacts at covert street which is the narrow alleyway. those conditions have been incorporated into the recommendation of approval which were included in your packets. staff has also prepared an additional map of and cds in the vicinity to show where others are located in concentrations. which are being provided to you now. the nearest permitted mcd was determined to be delta health center on mission street which is approximately 3400 feet away directly. staff recommends that
2:04 am
the planning commission take a dr and approve the project with the recommended conditions. this concludes status presentation and am available for questions. >> thank you spews this is the second hearing for this matter so 2 min. for the dr requested. speakers for the project sponsor. >> good evening commissioners. i thought it would probably make the most sense for the use of our time for mr. swinney's property owner and project applicant to just give you some background about the key medications with the neighbors and the steps they are taking to address any concerns or mitigating potential problems should >> thank you you please >> thank you. so at our last hearing we had a couple neighbors show up and had a lot of concerns and complaints about the project. we spent the last month working with them identifying any and addressing
2:05 am
their concerns and traffic impacts, security, signage. even hours of business. they asked us to close a live-in early on monday, tuesday, and wednesday nights. through multiple meetings and conversations we feel like we've addressed all their concerns to the extent that actually apply to michael and then sent all that-i think we are good to proceed. >> thank you. we read that in the packet. is there anybody who isn't in public comment of support? no. okay. >> just public comments. >> public comment? >> hello. my name is joyce 7 pm resin of san francisco. i work for a medicinal cannabis company that treats very sick patients. so we have no recreational users. 80% stage for patients mostly? oh pass,
2:06 am
and tumors. we would be one of the proposed tenants. we have been to 15 compliant for many years and a founder is a woman who had a debilitating autoimmune disease basically came to this company because of her own disease so through that we are now treating many many people. so we will not see significant for traffic. i think we are ready representative of sort of the best use case for this type of license. and we stand in firm support. available for questions. >> thank you very much. any additional speakers? seeing none, this portion of the hearing is close >>[gavel] >> commissioner moore >> i would like to ask why the neighbors were posing it before did not write a letter of support? because i had to call the secretary to remind myself that we had heard this before and normally there is a
2:07 am
reflection in the summary to us about what was said then and what you're doing now. so i would at least like to see the reporting by those who opposed it before say, hey, we met and we feel comfortable supporting i do not see that. i raise it as a question because that's typically done that way. together, with a brief description of what transpired in the previous meeting. so again i had to call secretary-to refresh my memory and perhaps you had the same problem. it looked like a new project but then the gilbert name ring a bell to me. i think it's interesting to see the project now with today seeing the map of mcd's in the general area that that indeed become a delivery or contact point. only to ask mr.--if you don't mind,
2:08 am
looking ahead, the muscular hypothetical question don't go trying to put you on the spot, what do you see how this location will ultimately fail when prop 68 will kick in and there will be a change in the entire environment of how we distribute, how we deal with mcd's as well's with recreational their one? how do you see this particular project respond to that? >> well, i do think to be the one bicycle delivery, neighborhood community delivery service not a citywide delivery service. one that is focused on that area. i think there will be one huge business really decent market for them than the other businesses going in there targeted for example like constant therapeutics, they're very specialized business you don't follow traditional kind of dispensary business model. they are vertically integrated.
2:09 am
there's a lot of small businesses like that that don't really fit into these larger categories and so i think these are boutique businesses and i think this could be a place for them as long as they can get into compliance which is kind of the concept behind this old project is to give them the opportunity to get into compliance so they can stay in business and role out there product. but it's not going to be like a high-volume retail dispensary type of a facility. >> thank you there are two ways to think about it. i'm interested in seeing a codified building of a support infrastructure for mcd's in the city. this is kind of in that direction. i see a new pushback coming potentially out of orange line-out of washington dc - i'm sorry - and so i think having a support system is very important to be particularly
2:10 am
the supervisors are already in the middle trying to create appropriate locations for the cultivation within city boundaries. this would be again one of those transfer points were that could potentially be facilitated. not that you would grow on this site but would help the larger industry. the other thing is i would like to see us still get feedback once this particular project is filled and see that the neighbors indeed, are seeing their requests be met. that is indeed the hours of operation, that there is indeed no lack of security, that there is indeed, no lack of any of the terms by which we are supporting the this particular dr. mr. washington is that currently built in as a monitoring coming back after 12 months or so to give us a heads up on it? since the neighbors are not here,-[cross-talking / off mic]
2:11 am
>> that's not typically a condition that we've had on dr four cannabis dispensaries. this will would be somewhat of an situation where we did require that. b so if the neighbors would come back and complain and say, hey planning department support this approval and for me that's a missing patient that the neighbors are saying we are okay. >> you're looking for a one-year look back? >> yes just like a look back. how's it going >> perhaps we have that [inaudible] ido project sponsors have returned to the commission is six-month period to give an update report [cross-talking / off mic] >> i like to use that as a technique to old everybody's feet to the fire here. because these types of agreements on mutual based and i would feel comfortable just putting a note
2:12 am
of caution. >> if there was something amiss when we got the memo we could actually schedule a hearing as to what the heck is going on. is that a motion to approve >> that is a motion to take discretionary review and approve with conditions including the one which we just loosely spelled out which is the correct verbiage for that. >> we would reporting back to the commission in one year spew ass >> yes >> yes12 hmonths >> is there a second? the second >> thank you. on a motion, commissioner koppel aye melgar aye moore: richards aye. so most passes unanimously 4-0. commissioners a place on general public comment. i've no speak regards >> any general public comment? seeing none, decommission hearing is adjourned in memory of carl jensen who passed away on the project we .
2:13 am
>>[gavel] >>[adjournment] >>. was >> >>
2:14 am
>> i have 2 job titles. i'm manager of the tour program as well as i am the historyian of city hall. this building is multifaceted to say the very least it's a municipal building that operates the city and county of san francisco. this building was a dream that became a reality of a man by the name of james junior elected mayor of san francisco in 1912. he didn't have a city hall because it was destroyed in the earth wake of 1906. construction began in april of
2:15 am
1913. in december 1915, the building was complete. it opened it's doors in january 1916. >> it's a wonderful experience to come to a building built like this. the building is built as a palace. not for a king or queen. it's built for all people. this building is beautiful art. those are architecture at the time when city hall was built, san francisco had an enormous french population. therefore building a palace in the art tradition is not unusual. >> jimmie was an incredible individual he knew that san francisco had to regain it's
2:16 am
place in the world. he decided to have the tallest dome built in the united states. it's now stands 307 feet 6 inches from the ground 40 feet taller than the united states capital. >> you could spend days going around the building and finding something new. the embellishment, the carvings, it represents commerce, navigation, all of the things that san francisco is famous for. >> the wood you see in the board of supervisor's chambers is oak and all hand carved on
2:17 am
site. interesting thing about the oak is there isn't anymore in the entire world. the floors in china was cleard and never replanted. if you look up at the seceiling you would believe that's hand kof carved out of wood and it is a cast plaster sealing and the only spanish design in an arts building. there are no records about how many people worked on this building. the workman who worked on this building did not all speak the same language. and what happened was the person working next to the other person respected a skill a skill that was so wonderful that we have
2:18 am
this masterpiece to show the world today.

2:34 am
intelligently. it's been the practice of this commission repeatedly to prop long and lengthy reports on the table the minute we walked in the door. it precludes intelligent comment and i call this to attention that it's unfair to the public. am i interrupting something? >> its online. >> continue with your comments. >> my clock is not running. >> i stopped it for you, sir. >> thank you very much. the people who try to make intelligent comments on conduct and police activities in san francisco something that is important to everyone in this room up to a little more noticeable the commission is receiving and commenting on. even if our questions from time to time appear in name. thank

2:44 am
brief presentation as well the tenant molina. so we are here tonight give you an update and overview of the mou signed with the department of public health which i believe is a really forward thinking proactive approach to ensure not only the safety of our officers but also the community as a whole. the partners-partnership includes strategies to work together to prevent behavioral crisis from occurring but also to provide the investigative support to our investigative units around behavioral crisis situations. we developed the team response which during a critical incident distinguished on now and lieut. molina will recognize some of the authors working with them to try and come to a good conclusion into a peaceful resolution on that response. after the response, we also have a plan to follow coordinated approach to prevent that reoccurrence whether it's within a neighborhood in san francisco, at a treatment
2:45 am
center or anyplace like that. the dph members will also be working with our officers actively around training in crisis response to getting a better understanding of how we have trained better in our tactics around de-escalation. we will also gain insight and understanding from them with a clinical psychologist and behavioral health commissions that are god, on board to work directly with our officers. so some initial goals we've initially set for this program is obviously dph providing support in the field where there is behavioral health components with the goal of a peaceful resolution. also we will focus on chronic mental health users in all police districts to prevent a behavioral crisis from occurring and lastly, to support the patrol force and try and reduce the mental health calls for service for patrol officers in the field
2:46 am
with a proactive approach up front working with the district station captains. lastly before they not only to welcome commissioner mazzucco will be joining the cit workgroup representing the spotty in working through all our crisis intervention training to come. so welcome, commissioner. without of the view lieut. molina and her dph staff as well. the thank you chief. he was lieut. molina is no stranger to us. good to see back your lieutenant. >> thank you commission appeared good evening director and chief. the me introduce my unit did i've sgt. kevin--carlos [inaudible] an officer [inaudible] were going to be part of the psychiatric unit but it's a component of cit. with me we have angelica medina and director stephanie felder. so just to do an overview i know you did a great job of doing the overview of
2:47 am
the program that we have with dph. this unit is quick to focus on two components. we are going to have the prevention component which means, as i said before to the commission, having excess of over 4000 even be in the year. so our focus,, our main focus we concentrating on those high-end users of services. so with that, our goal is to collect the data, to see who the high-end users are and reach out to the people through the department of public health. i know there is some [inaudible] that we have to abide by and show the person is going to be a little bit slow in the beginning but we already have established the bridge of communication between sf pd and dph and were working
2:48 am
[inaudible] i've seen a lot of progress in the last two months ago we been working together on how we are going to address this issue. we have a list of about 100. the top people that have been 5150s more than 40 times in one year. so we are focusing on that individual and with the bridge of communication we have established with dph reach out to them obviously they cannot talk back to me because of hippa laws but were able to connect with the commission assigned to the person and secure a waiver allowing us to talk to her and her to talk to us and now we have a plan in progress. we are going to be addressing this persons mental health issues and hopefully treatment or lack of treatment but now we are engaged so very actively working with dph in that sense. that just one of
2:49 am
the first things that this joint partnership has done so far. i think it's going in a good direction. the second component will be the crisis response. i know lieut. medina is can talk more about how her department is quick to respond. i just want to give you a brief just action about sfpd will respond to it. we will be notified. we will notify director of crisis which is stephanie felder, i think. [inaudible] by phone she will connect to her unit. that unit will designate a crime-intervention specialist to respond in that specialist is going to connect with our operational command that will be in charge of the crisis situation. there will will be for advice and for information based on whatever [inaudible] we can have were allowed to communicate with each other and we will come up with a plan to
2:50 am
negotiate on the team is can a huge role in working with dph as i said before the three members of my unit are negotiations hostage negotiators also. so that is a platform for that. the last components will be the investigative component. sgt. [inaudible] has been one woman unit in the past for the police department was billy sick i took liaison for the unit and working with the different agencies and the city so now she has help and we are going to continue with that unit. there will will be to provide support to the investigative units at district stations to the bureaus into the patrol force. so when they [inaudible] that has mental health components she will be notified and she will respond to assist or provide advice on how to deal with the situation, or
2:51 am
with the come out with the best plan addressing the mental health issues that this person might have [inaudible] and are big thing is to look for divergent when possible. so that's one of the goals we have. that's it in a nutshell. >> thank you .. >> good evening directors and commissioners and she could intercept course a pleasure to be here and to work on the development of this program an extension of our already existing relationship with the police department with deputy chief redmond tenant lena and sgt. krueger about the privilege of working with sgt. krueger with many years at this point. so as i'm sure you are aware this program was an initiative of the mayor's
2:52 am
office was also a recommendation of the re-envisioning the jail workgroup that occurred. this team will sit under the conference of crisis under the direction of stephanie felder. you included three clinical psychologist and to behavioral health clinicians that will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. this is based on eight: respond or model that utilizes the combined expertise of an officer and a mental health clinician to address the crisis and support linkage to ongoing care. the goal of this program of course is to support law enforcement and crisis situations with her sis is back to behavioral health components and also for us to further support the efforts of the crisis intervention training any specialized training that's needed by police officers. as lieut. molina has already discussed, our role on the scene will be to report to the operational commander and liaison with the on scene hostage negotiation team. whenever possible sharing critical information that may help resolve the crisis. this may also include speaking to a pre--christian we can
2:53 am
individualize ways to help this de-escalate the situation at hand. once the crisis has been resolved, the crisis intervention specialist will also be able to assess the individual four 5150 criteria to support them and getting to the hospital if that's with clinically indicated and one sure the hospital has all the necessary collateral information upon their arrival. in the event an individual is placed under arrest this team will also be responsible for ensuring that collateral information is sent to jailhouse services again that information is of able upon their arrival. this team will also work with an individual pass the crisis and ensure if they go to the hospital were to the jail, that there is a clinically appropriate discharge plan in place before they are released from the facility which connects an individual to voluntary proverbially based community based services. the team will
2:54 am
also be responsible for supporting family members and anyone else is affected by a crisis by providing crisis intervention support debriefing services if that is needed. of course we look forward to working with the police department to gather additional information to see how we can continually improve on this joint program and are other associated efforts. so are the permits will work together to support data collection is allowed by confidentiality and this may include anonymous information such as demographics outcomes of negotiation crisis assessment, services at the individual is linked to in any realized reduction in negative outcomes such as hospitalization incarceration or other crisis contact. currently, we are wrapping up the process of hiring the staff that we part of this team could we still have one more staff member that we need to add and
2:55 am
none of the staff is it started we will be starting in the coming weeks. so we look forward to starting the training process. you also be training other members that currently exist on the conference of crisis team so that we have further test to ensure that all times we are able to support police officers in any crisis situation. of course we look forward to continuing this effort and working on implementation. thank you. >> thank you. since you folks are here now we will take any questions you have on this particular segment of the cheese report. >> thank you and welcome everybody to this something mayor's office suggested. this police commission has wanting for quite a while and i think that we see a common thread that her officers get involved in situations with people were mental health crisis. so i've a question for you. it sounds as if-no i like the prevention side of this in him glad to be part of the group. i was told yesterday would i be willing to
2:56 am
be involved and i told commissioner turman i would love to be involved so it's a project that's important to the city. the police department to the citizens and i feel very strongly about it. so you pick out a list of the 100 top consumers and you have said that there was one person who's 51 5048 times in a year? >> yes. >> so on the prevention side, there'll be a focus on this individual's and imagine it would pretty immediately of an idea where those people are at and we will start approaching them to try and bring them into the services. the itc >> >> that is correct. >> >> that is correct. we've got the beginning of the year so we have done some research on those individuals and of ensuring the information with angelica and that those able to connect to that clinician we actually are in touch with a clinician that's working with this person. now were getting
2:57 am
from the inside for the department of public health because he signed a waiver which allows us to talk. once the waiver is in place, we are allowed to talk and i have sgt. guwahati made it onto the ivan talking to the clinician at least twice in the last four days. on how were going to approach the person that we are talking about and it looks good. it seems like there's some needs that have to be taken care of and once we get him stabilized in those needs i think the service the calls for service will be reduced. >> i didn't i think of clinicians need to know this is their work product they're turning out on the street. essentially, we've all seen these as you walked on the street here in san francisco, people on mental-health crisis. he will say to me all the time, why are these poor people out on the street. why are they being released from a 51 5072 hour hold before 72 hours? so i think we need buy-in from the clinicians from the article called because her officers and
2:58 am
our dph people working this is not going to be successful unless the doctors take care of their patients and not be concerned about the number of beds that are available or do they meet the allowed them to listen to the radio i hear the person does meet the 5150 requirements now as the officers are approaching but i think we need a stronger -stronger-influence and stronger participation from the medical side of this. i think that's one of the things i would like to see when i go to the first meeting. the legacy mori presents from the doctors of the san francisco general from pes. many many times i hear our officers called his durability and they say it's in code red which means there's no availability,. so i think that's the part we need to work on in addition to the 100 could again i appreciate this and sgt. krueger even great for years and welcome to the other two officers doing this. again we need more buy-in and hopefully will get more buy-in from the physicians. >> sorry commission what i was going to add is i serving
2:59 am
appreciate that perspective. i think we all worked very closely just what the individuals we are seeing in san francisco and there are certainly lieut. molina stalker case where he for terrific to get consent from an individual who will share information that doesn't always happen and work was limited by law and what we are able to share and also how longer able to keep them a buddy at the hospital could so those are all challenges that were chronically dealing with and of course were looking at how we can better maximize the services that we have available but i certainly want to assure you were of course committed to the population that we are serving and have a robust set of services. that being said are services are bound. our goal is to always to support the engagement of the individual involved harry services. >> i appreciate that. >> commissioner, i would like to add an article in the units to community with the department of public health and create a plan that i won the plan for this person i want our officers to have information when they contact them on the street what will be the next steps to take. so i'm looking into technology and develop a new app that i talked to
3:00 am
companies here in san francisco that are based out of seed san francisco and hopefully will do a pro bono for us. where are officer will be able to go on their smartphones, click on the app and look at the response plan for this individual. to see how the service, what connection does he have what resources are payable for this individual, elke response to the crisis could that is our goal. i know we talked about it so its work in progress but i think we are getting there. it will take all of us to get there. >> thank you very much. i appreciate your >> commissioner hing >> yes thank goodness the second him we've heard on this program which of course is quite laudable and i asked the question on good repeat a question that i asked last time. do you contemplate situations where a mental health

professional is at the scene and either on his or her own, use is engaged with the suspect, or in conjunction with the police officer, or, are all the scenarios contemplating always just an officer that's engaging based on training? spears as of right now that we contemplate just the officer. a trained professional like [inaudible] hostage negotiator officer we doing the negotiation. some of the research that we have encountered i guess we call the hostage negotiator will better to have expand research, but what we've seen is when only one person communicates is the best result. so i will defer to you on how you guys do communication. what would be effective. >> i just want to add that we are actually already working
3:02 am
together like the police department goes out with mobile crisis were adult protective services. so we actually all already has a team going out. just in case all those 5150s number's are just sfpd. so when we say those numbers that isn't including like-let say the paramedics picked him up or other agencies pick them up with just talking about san francisco police 5150. but in response to a question were actually already doing it and will continue to do it another we have the mou we will be able to make it even stronger. >> well, you're already doing that in terms you're already out there but you actually engage in conversation with the suspect? or, are you going through an officer? >> so i am actually sfpd but mental-health will be out with me and they are doing it in the conversation and we are there to support them and depending on the circumstances, we go back and forth. so that's already actually happening. >> not in a crisis, though.
3:03 am
that something we do on a daily basis when dph mobile crisis was fontweight house because there's issues. mental-health issues that haven't communicated to dph and then we will go to support dph but a crisis situation where the barricaded suspect or person in crisis, police department will be the first responding the police department will stylish negotiation with that person. you would not be the clinician doing a face-to-face good it will be a hostage negotiator. >> in that circumstance there will be mental-health professional more than likely out there also? >> definitely. that's how the team works to weaker contact director stephanie felder the call will go out. the team will respond and they will report to the operational commander of information is going to be passed back and forth between the hostage negotiating team. and the crisis precious >> thank you. >> commissioner just read the
3:04 am
public out the clinicians' assessing individuals for 5150 outside of contact with the police department and our adult mobile crisis unit is doing that on a daily basis. so that's only does occur outside of please contact. >> so just to be clear, in a prevention situation dph is actually the agency doing the initial contact with support by the department but in a crisis situation, the department is the responding and the dph agency member is there to provide the support? >> correct. the prevention model in the be doubly outreach somebody jointly certainly, again on a daily basis we are outreaching individuals and assessing for crisis situations and trying to reduce contact with police officers. so that may happen just as a clinician were in addition with a police officer but if a crisis occurs
3:05 am
where the hostage negotiation team is called out the hostage to go chasing team will be on point to have contact with the individual and we would provide additional support on the team. >> but the police about it with you prevention, commissioner. we will go out there and check on the well-being of the people that are i think we will do both. >> i'm a little concerned about that. here's my concern. understanding there's likely going to be maybe some type of waiver in place, i do not want -i understand we are in the prevention mode. i just want to make sure we have the right kind of training, the right kind of approach, the right kind of support needed that doesn't turn a non-crisis situation into a crisis situation. sometimes that can be set off just by the fact that the woman is wearing a uniform.
3:06 am
so that is what a mostly concerned about. that is what i would like to hear a little more about. i think the best way to hear more about that is after we establish some kind of training and protocol if that has been established, then the spirit if not, let me go back. >> i hear you commissioner. that's a concern because uniforms sometimes is the trigger to a crisis. seeing the uniform presence might be a trigger. the officer might be the trigger the lights and sounds my theater so taking that into consideration basically whenever we say were going to do well check and we will be with dph. it would not be just the police department. it will be a joint effort to get her clinician and police officer going to the house. >> yes i want to hear more about the training. and your module is complete i like to see something. >> okay.
3:07 am
>> chief did you want to- >> just to clarify a couple things, on the prevention side, before there's any type of approach there is really a complete work work up up down of the individual person before we go out and would make any contact. a lot of times within the police districts, he would have certain addresses that could be that the officers are there all the time and it sort of a preventative measure. were getting all this cause but is there something we can do on the front and prevent the officer to going from these calls were doing were research on the house of the family the individual. what's going on with that person to try and prevent a crisis from happening. so before there's any contact with his huge discussion with this group and they have i mean they're teaching the cic cost are very involved in training in the department. he briefed me on anytime they are going out to the scene could officer safety in the approach is really taken and it's really on the medical
3:08 am
side we're dph is to lead and we would be supportive sometimes the officers may not be in new orleans for that that flash. then to revisit commissioner hing a little bit if there is a crisis situation -so this is we've had a couple instances where this is happening in one of those was when the chairman was suicidal in front of city hall myself and dir. garcia were ashley talking to the whole situation could nuke league wasn't actually sgt. krueger had worked with the person prior and responded out and de-escalate of that whole situation to the piece are resolved and those the gentleman very publicized was right in civic center plaza that was suicidal. so the idea around the response when there's a crisis happening there could be a situation and reviews family members before because we will do anything to resolve it peacefully or maybe it could be a situation we had a robbery situation in the terror about where to the department of public health, we
3:09 am
were able to get in contact with a person's clinician would been working with a person four years and they-although they did not enter the scene already in resolved peacefully this is sort of where the idea came from, is are we missing something in these crisis situations that we can bring in on the clinician side to help the hostage negotiator with the crisis officer to resolve a peaceful world we don't have to do an entry into a house. though there could be a situation where they could be used at the scene and i think all of us would agree we would use anything we can to resolve that peacefully. but just to-we are always looking out if there's any type of approach words and non-crisis it's very low-key sometimes the officers may not be the person at the door. they could be there for safety reasons but we do not want to create the crisis. that's not our goal here. >> i know that is not your goal. believe me. >> we have to be very careful >> yes okay so i'm going to take [inaudible] just to see how it's working. thank you.
3:10 am
>> the last thing they are keeping track of all the contacts in everything and maybe get something the commission would want to see because we want to show the success in all the successes are having on a daily basis and try and support the stations and reduce those calls. so thank you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you so much everyone. the him please. the presentation by the department and dpa go to report on general orders. leaving commissioners. director takes give scott deputy chief from professional standards and principal just here to give you a very brief report on the fourth quarter 2016 general orders and department bolton were issued. as your very well aware we had a very busy fourth
3:11 am
quarter when the department of justice issued their lengthy report and it was also commendation of when we were changing general orders fit into the general orders being change that there's only three that were impacted. one was the use of force which was issued again december it was a brand-new general order. general order 5.02 which was the pre-existing use of force, was rescinded and rolled into 5.01 and then the crisis intervention team which you just heard very much from that was a new general order crisis intervention team policy which was approved by this commission. in the same quarter, fourth-quarter, there were 70 priority - excuse me - 78 the bar emboldens issued it introductory at 27 eight, [inaudible] primarily impacted were impacted general orders that they related to department of justice recommendations. so
3:12 am
as an example, when were looking at use of force, we would issue a bulletin saying that there's been a change to the use of force could as an extension of 5.02. so it's a port of the doj recommendations. a number of these bulletins will continue to be issued in the next quarter. i'll report on that shortly. just to be clear, we are developing working groups on all the general orders in the department bulletins member of your staff, your senior analyst is made with my staff to look at a process to improve department general orders and department bolton issuance and we will report back on that in the next quarter. finally commissioner hing has met with the command staff and they were reviewing the department general order 810 which is a public first amendment activities and it is been recommended that we convene a working group to look at-to
3:13 am
amend the general order. that concludes the overview on this report. >> first, i was remiss. i want to first thing i want to do is congratulate you jeopardy chief them on your elevation to the level deputy chief from capt. so welcome to the-welcome to the big leagues deputy chief. [laughing]second of all to the commissioner 70 specifics before we moved to ms. mary que 's evening commissioners, chief director hicks member of the public, i don't have much to add. most certainly we filed a
3:14 am
letter and artwork we did in terms of the policy work last order focused highly on cit geo as well as the use of force dg oh. the third time department of justice an immediate implementation of recommendations. it has to do with the police department paid a reported basis not only do this when what you really look at any training or policy failures or enhancements that come out of that process. so to move that forward we drafted a police commission resolution and i know that something under review by the police department. that something the doj recommended implementations were hoping to move that forward as soon as possible but i'm happy to answer any questions about this sparks report. >> are there any specifics on the sparks report? i'm sorry
3:15 am
good i'm just looking down on my notes it. [inaudible] i don't want to hold you up. if no one else has any questions, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> president turman >> of course, chief spews same one more thing going back to the last report on cit, i will follow-up with the commission on exactly the training is. i know that was part of the i think part of the question you had but i will follow-up with the commission and exact with the training is composed of and give you a detailed or summary of that training. >> i would appreciate that. thank you, chief. all right, questions for the chief for the chiefs report? >> so i just want to follow-up >> the mission or dejesus >> commissioner dejesus >> sorry. i want to follow-up on [inaudible] i'm sorry can
3:16 am
you here me? is that better? i want to follow-up on a couple of questions. last week we talked about how me women were on the command staff in italy was to civilians and two sworn members. that made 90% and this one women were 15%. but i don't have all the information's white rocket put you on the spot but i been informed that if you add all the civilian woman and all this one woman it's 23% of the force. so i guess when we get to-i don't put you on the spot when we get to new items i'm going to talk about a little bit about about promotions and about you know, what's in the pipeline in terms of women and minorities in promotional pipeline and how are the determining who's been promoted and what type of test are reusing. have we been using the same test for ever? is it the
3:17 am
best practice. him and ask a lot of questions for because him and asked for a report to come up soon and perhaps what we may need to do is to do is audit the promotional part of it. seeing none, the best practice is good with the questions and factual scenarios are the news another biased warfare or are they representation of everyone on the force, or is it to narrow? i just want to let you know that's coming up. if you want to address it it's fine. i don't want to put you on the spot. >> yes i think you had a couple questions that there. one was the testing process >> yes >> so the testing process stops >> cheap this is not agendize so what i'm going to do is i'm going to take what commissioner dejesus has asked and we are going to schedule it for a report. so you can come back
3:18 am
and you won't be cut off. you can answer specific what you want >> right. when it comes to that i want to be a little more specific with some of the questions could >> thank you. >> okay. any further questions for the chief? okay. public comment on chief reports. [cross-talking / off mic] we are not done at all. sorry. >> item two-b dpa directors report. report on beeson tva activities and announcement. the evening director hicks evening pres. turman and members of the commission. chief scott members of the public. the dpa has no recent activities to report this evening good that is why you skipped over pres. turman. [laughing] width way to be a team player. [laughing] next item the item 2-c mission
3:19 am
reports commission president support commissioners report. >> just by way of commissioners report i did attend the march 7 report to the board of supervisors and deliver some prefer marx before the chiefs remarks some of our more recent activities discussing some of the activities we will be taking on in our specific role in on the commission related but related reforms as and how we will be interacting with the departments in those reforms. other than that, i have no further report. commissioners, do you have anything to report? nothing? >> i will take advantage but i did attend it [inaudible] a 10 meeting with the command staff
3:20 am
last friday, i guess and i find it very enlightening good i understand much better some of the issues that are of importance to the department and so am happy to learn more about that. we are going to convene a meeting soon with some stakeholders and also again i wrapped up-i'm wrapping up my captain's visits. i was at the bayview yesterday and enjoyed meeting capt.-thank you >> thank you. okay. next line item please >> >> item two-the commission announcements and certain of items identified for consideration of further commission meetings. >> commissioner dejesus >> i want to get back to this. in the promotion you just have no women were promoted in one of the questions i have is what
3:21 am
is the percentage of women and minorities in the pipeline for promotions? i want to point out to this commission that the department of justice reports basically said overall the promotion rate for women have declined from 26% to 13.6% in our department and this promotion just kind of having this promotion just came through just kind of layering in that the were no women in there. so now that i know there's 23% of sworn and civilian women i don't think that 19% i think that's a skewed number of ad like to know without real number is. the question is, not just minorities, not just women by minorities in the pipeline. i want to report to talk what the testing procedure that we use, who develops the questions, who builds the factual scenario how are the results judge, what is the makeup and representation of the committee that sets this up and was the best practice through the nation and what is the best practice to promote women and minority separatism
3:22 am
tatian on the command staff within the department itself? potentially, do we need an audit on this whole procedure? i think it's really important and i can't tell you how clearing that promotion was in terms of what it was lacking and all the comments that are becoming my way since i mentioned it last week. why think it's really important and that part of justice has noted that there's a decline in district unsure this is going to add to that a client this recent promotion to so that's what i want. >> i think it's an opportunity that dr. callahan is one. because it seems i just want to be your report. so we will allow you director callahan to put our heads together with this department and come back to that us with that report. i will get that scheduled as soon as we can. thank you. >> commission i won enough of the police commission will hold
3:23 am
a special meeting at a location other than city hall and the commission will meet in the southern district ethic and every jewish museum 763 mission st., san francisco on wednesday, march 15 2017 at 6 pm. their comments from the public southern station capt. darrell fung discerning public protection issues in the southern district. >> okay. that is next wednesday. commissioner mazzucco will chair the meeting as i will be away on business. any further commission reports were announcements? okay. now public comment on item 1, cheese report >> item 2-a through d >> thank you. 2-8 through d >> can i give you guys some brief idea why i'm here and how i got here right? i want to run
3:24 am

3:25 am
>> >>[video] >> is working. the microphone is on. >> >>[video]
3:26 am
>> mr. salivary 10 you go ahead and will come back to ms. brown. while we get our technical stuff worked out. one second. let me get our timer on. sorry. you see where you are. she's going to get the timer. >> good evening commissioners dictated- >> i want to make sure that you get your time. [ >> would you start the stores all the areas time? rachel, could you start this time?
3:27 am
>> so good evening commissioners david-san francisco san franciscans for police accountability. i don't think this'll take a three full 3 min. but i want to say that in general, the community is very very pleased about what's happening with the cit especially now that the dph is involved. we were concerned is only 25 clinicians citywide but it sounds to me--kind of got me into the details yet as if that may be sufficient. we will see. i spoke to mike lieut. molina outside in the hallway in all get together with him next week and get more information about just how this rollout is can happen. so i think that in general the commission and sfpd and the dbh is heading totally in the right direction and i commend everybody on the other work that's been done. i just want to do one but little reality check which is shone
3:28 am
more case. that's a case where cpi definitely should have been deployed and was not. the situation right now for shone more i do not both the bail hearing and the very long now preliminary hearing the third day tomorrow and basically what you have is a schizophrenic with a some major psychological issues that are now been shocked and is now being prosecuted and has [inaudible] very serious charges on and it has nowhere to go even if he can get bailed out. as no services that we discovered for him. he's wounded. he can go back into his house though best reality check on what happens when cpi is not deployed the way it should be. one of the things that we talking to sgt. molina about is just exactly how does 9/11 actually dispatch
3:29 am
on these calls. how do they become aware of the fact that somebody has a mental health crisis we all get back you more next week or in the immediate future on that we are definitely going to dig and realty bonnie. i just want to say one other thing. thank you for the talk that are now hearing about some auditing capacity. we were concerned though yesterday that it sounds like sfpd itself is going to audit and that is something that may cause some issues within the activist community. it might be better to have some type of an outside audit and what we will look and see what sfpd is going to do in terms of auditing itself and weigh in on that also. thank you. >> thank you. i think the gentlemen is here to assist you. while ms. brown is working on
3:30 am
the technical difficulties, is there anyone else prepared for public comment on the items to-eight through two-d? >> >>[video]
3:31 am
3:32 am
3:33 am
>> enqueue >> thank you ms. brown. okay, -- and congratulations to the new chief. congratulations to everybody is here. the peace
3:34 am
officers, i'm trying to go from police to peace officers. they have to own the street. day or night. as situation, mental crisis, if they are their first they're doing their job. assessing the situation is i presume, primal in what they do as a police whenever about wherever, what's going on here? but the police officers have to own the street. when there is a fire that peace officers give control of the situation to the fire departments. the same thing should happen with our item in a crisis intervention moments. the police should stay there as long as they can because you are watching a human being a broken human being in their mind and their for the grace of god go i spent it to be genetic it could be who knows why. the
3:35 am
angels, the people that respond are the angels to their volunteers out there that are doing it now. there are policemen out there now. that can talk to people in crisis better than other peace officers can. we have to recognize our talents. we have to put our best keep out there. from what i understand, that is happening to we are going in the right direction. i would like the tenured veterans day and night last time they were here they said that the tenured veterans have a little more new wants good i like the tenured veterans or look never fired a gun to that of not been brought up for excessive force, have never falsified a report to work with a rookie in two tenured veterans with one rocketed three people the conversation goes better than two people that don't get locked up between generation
3:36 am
gaps and whatnot. we need a place to take the people. that's a major major major everybody should be just upset and say mayor, mayor, mayor, we need a place to put these people. i would would like to be part of an injection site as a place and we can get these people that if they aren't drugs or to conduct all of it and maybe reach a stable situation and maybe in that situation get out of it. i want the situation to not be police and not be the department of public health good i want their own identity, team x we have to give birth to this. that's where it's going to get a little rough and we need a place to allow these people to calm down. thank you. >> thank you. not yet, sir. >> thank you congratulations to
3:37 am
women of the world on wednesday. we appreciate you all. starting with my mother. i walked around and spoke to the officers represented to you on the cit and what was missing in the conversation is a stronger emphasis. i found out there is an emphasis but a stronger public emphasis about mental health first aid training for the first responder officers. the cit team by design is second responder in. what we know about some of the tragic incidents is they have it happen in seconds. so while the phone is ringing in the cit office were locker room were home or wherever they are,
3:38 am
there is no pause button. if i'm that person i'm unraveling. so the first responder officer is doing with that while waiting on the cit and. i do not understand i'm pleased to understand there will be 40 hours of training eventually for every police officer in what we are calling mental health first aid. which is very reassuring and those who know about folks in military maybe for example every person on that [inaudible] is trained in firefighting whether the job his cook or capt. or whatever. so that's very refreshing to hear and i just want to reinforce that seems logical to avoid their first responder officer says it's not my jacket i got a call cit and i know i'm exaggerating to say that, but that dynamic can be there when
3:39 am
the situation really depends on that first responder. so we really appreciate and hope you will help accelerate the training for the first responder officers because they make a difference in matters of seconds. i just want to say that i've another thing on general comment but i will pass it on. so it's a way of saying, thank you for how this program seems to be going. >> thank you. public comment on items two-a through to-d. >> hello. my name is john jones my comments please the commission. i've nothing but praise for those involved in the mental health aspects of police work. however the overwhelming impression i had was that the commission is passing the buck. of necessity. the mentally ill person has contact with the police department. the person's needs
3:40 am
are properly addressed. refer to the common public health or whatever and they are off. then what? during mental and this is extremely expensive. i hear nothing here about where the buck stops. that is something you have the expertise to talk to. >> sir, i am pausing your time. >> was there a question >> no. go ahead and finish. >> i and you and most of the people in this room we walk run the streets of san francisco and we see people with a glazed look in their eyes. the people acting out. these are the people probably have been through the system once or twice with a 5150 person who's been through the system thousands of times. but there's nothing in this about addressing the overall mental health issues that conflict
3:41 am
present themselves to the police department. now, the answer may be that this is clearly on the scope of police work. where does the buck stop? i mean after they go to the haulage hellish homeless shelter or they get shuffled around and austere is completed and shuffled some fills out the man out the door they go, what happens? that ought to be the question. because what you want to do is keep it from happening in again and nobody else in civil government is really going to ask that so i am asking you to ask it. here is my suggestion. get around number for how much it would cost to serve the mental health needs of san francisco and put it in your budget. send it off to the mayor and the board of supervisors. locally oh, we call that sticking it to the man. in which you get is a lot of conversation about how to do with mental health. it might
3:42 am
even make it into the newspapers but what you won't be doing annually doing this to people of san francisco at an enormous service as you will not be passing the buck. thank you. >> on going to exercise my right for limited public engagement and going to say this. ladies and gentlemen, members of the public, this is the san francisco police commission. arched with the oversight of the police department and the department of police accountability. we have no mental health expertise . the department comes into contact with individuals with mental health issues all the time. what have we tried to do? create a bridge between the departments interaction and the department of public health. the body in san francisco that has that expertise the body that has that that needs to act
3:43 am
for the money and the services. the body that needs to direct the people in mental health crisis. in this department comes into contact with people in mental crisis, i don't want to see violence but i do want to see them hurt good i want to see them directed and treated in age as humane fashion and get the help they want and need and what have we done to address that we tried to reach out to dph to form a partnership to go into preventative services as well as services that come about because of crisis. it is not the police department's job to address mental health issues. it is not it is their job to direct-to belize and when does to interact, or intersect, we need to find a way to help people that does not necessarily
3:44 am
involve a law enforcement and good we are doing that. but the ultimate responsibility does not lie with this department and this is not the cure-all hole for every single social issue in san francisco. we can do what we can do and we are trying to address it but we don't need to be told we're doing something wrong. because we don't have the-we don't have the ability to address certain needs nor have we ever-nor have we ever held ourselves out to be that world we can take on the responsibility for every single of the department in this city and county. next public speaker on items two-a and two-d >> absolutely. something for you guys to consider when you're out there policing. something for you to consider. our urban neighborhoods are
3:45 am
turned literally into a war zone. from 83--1992 good which basically is extreme [inaudible] speaking as a veteran. i know guys that ptsd. i worked there [inaudible] enlist also [inaudible] i did what people who lived in f2 afghanistan, you name it right? with less severe issues than the people that are in the hood. if you think about it i can [inaudible] who died in the hood, but i can't think of anymore that died in the war. that's what you're doing with. you can have that much death, that much mass incarceration that much carnage without there being some consequences to the community itself. so those kids
3:46 am
out there in gangs gaining up, they do that for security. the dad is in prison getting broke. right? what you do in a sick community. could you please consider the people that you're dealing with and not bad people but people who need to be sealed right? can you any tree stand that much carnage and death and not have an affected psyche? that's what we are up against good i think ptsd, that's it. >> thank you, circuit next public comment, please. >> good evening commissioners and cheap scott. tammy bryant from district 5 and obviously came in really late and i saw the agenda and sorry i could not be here. i miss the presentation get a map to look for it online but i did want to say that i was really wanting
3:47 am
to hear what going to be the next steps when doing with a mentally ill because i agree with you. it's not a police issue. it really is in the purview of other agencies and other providers that the police are: people feel threatened or whatever. but i do want to see a change i do want to know that if i: 911 because i see some distress him not to find out later they been shot and call killed and i don't, and one for that very reason even though i see people they were due to what happened next so i just wants to just say i'm glad you guys are looking at this and i can't comment on details but i think it's really really important and i totally agree with pres. turman it's not in your purview get when i walked in with commissioner dejesus was not that the lack of women that were promoted and definitely not a person just spewing is a woman is better viewed on not that person however i do think you have a lot of [inaudible] officers i figured something to think about about promoting him up to that command staff level could
3:48 am
i think some of the implementations and reforms-in limitations were reforms will be good to also have a balance of women in am really looking forward for at least a couple that are also black. i think it's reported that we have black officers in the command staff. those are my comments for tonight. thank you >> well, the chief [inaudible] is a black officer. as is >> is over everything and [inaudible] >> good one of the deputy cheats, please was bryant in touch with lieut. molina is so she can hear details on the department of public health partnership with the police department? any further public comment we seeing none, public
3:49 am
comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> next item item please >> item number three presentation from the department of human resources dhr process for conducting public employee performance evaluation executive director department of police accountability, discussion and action. >> good evening director of the human resources departments. >> good evening president triggerman and commissioners. i have a canned out and a powerpoint. powerpoint is the same as the and out at some copies for the public as well. their black-and-white and smaller but they are the same.

3:51 am
was not made available to the commission prior to the start of the meeting and the presentation. dhr has provided some hard copies tonight but we will also have additional hard copies able at the commission office. >> thank you. >> good evening president turman, commissioner the chief scott director hicks. i'm here today to present information on evaluation of department which is standard throughout the city. that specific guidance we provide to other commissions and i'm going to review this standard process that we use in the city that we recommend to department of commissions. however commissions do have the ability to customize the process for their own needs. i will start with talking about the-so my idea. tonight is to simply talk about an overview of the performance plan and appraisal cycle could go
3:52 am
through some best practices and conducting performance grants and appraisals, particularly in regards to department heads and then speak directly about the department head process. >> before you begin dir. callahan, i just want to clarify. this process we are talking about the medicinal be applied to any department head because we got distracted into other things and do not complete a process last year but we will be doing one for the director hicks and also doing one eventually for the teeth as well. so this is universal? >> yes, it is. in fact this is the same presentation we did for the fire commission. we just changed >> we are not special at all. [laughing] >> we do this throughout and in fact department heads slightly differ from those of other managers in the city that we focus more on strategic planning and less on day-to-day management but it's effectively
3:53 am
the same prostate i will note, too, that the because we are san francisco even department heads are labors rubbers in my labor organization this case of the municipal executive association and occasionally the commission decides to do something rather unorthodox with respect to performance plans and appraisals they will make a complaint which is happened before. to me and then we've always been able to work it out. so the ema municipal executive association is very familiar with this process and has no problems with it. would you like me to go forward? please, do >> please, do >> bimetal values of our program involved partnership. basically are jointly going to identify the goals, the commission in this case or the of appointing authority and upon it are totally going to identify goals. we favor a lot of communication about those goals and about progress
3:54 am
through the performance plan. what we want to do is work out a performance agreement and that's the basis of how we do it. if you look at the-there's a picture of the cycle and the way it works is you start at the top could we have the performance agreement so the be a plan to be filled out in the commission in consultation with the department head would be saying these are the objectives we would like to reach during the year. for me, it might have to do with concluding enrolling implicit bias training or preparing an excellent presentation for the police commission on promotional practices and development exams. those-that's the first part is we set the-we come up with the performance agreement. then as the year progresses, we recommend a midpoint review, how we doing on these objectives
3:55 am
you meant to get to this repeatedly met our deadlines included in the plan, etc. at the conclusion of the period and again it could be a fiscal year by calendar year to conclude it's a fiscal year will be a pre-appraisal meeting see me with the department head , how have we done this year? and complete the performance evaluation. the resultant performance appraisal. it's basically the process we call performance planning and appraisal because you say in advance what is you expect to get done and then the person is evaluated at the conclusion of the period on how successful they achieve the objectives and goals of the plan. you will see our ports i have only one copy but it's public document and then it would would like it i can give it to you. sgt. kill shaw, we sent out this year as we do every year a proposed evaluation form for developing the performance plan. the
3:56 am
appraisal. i note, as i think you reference, this commission was very busy this year but cannot use of force and hiring a new police chief so it is not surprising that perhaps the commission has not completed the performance plan for its to department heads could certainly you a brand-new one as well. but this is a brand one we have here is specifically for those reporting to commissions and it's pretty much the same as the one that i would have reporting to the mayor and it focuses on setting out specific goals, and provides place for noting accomplishments and areas of growth and a moment that are desired, and a final evaluation where the department head signs off on it. they can also attend a statement they may or disagree with the report. the-so that's the general plan. we go to the , what we recommend the best
3:57 am
practice is that the performance agreement is very explicit good we don't want to say things like manager overtime did and said we would say keep your overtime under 10% or whether was the year before because then it's easier to know whether the been successful. another thing. complete project x i january 1 at those be the sorts of things that you would want to include as opposed to a generic to a good job managing your department. again, the best practices have agreement on the expectations of performance at the purse knows exactly what's expected of them during the year and there should be regular medication about progress. i will note that this a little atom we use in performance evaluation it they should be smart specific, as i noted, as specific as you make them, measurable, doing a good job is not a good-is not a good
3:58 am
we all do a good job we hope everyone does a good job we want to have some measurable's in the get something achievable. it shouldn't be so aspirational that the person is doomed to failure. relevance and of course timeframe to we learn much recommend there be a checkpoint along the way as far as when things should be accomplished. so it looks like this pretty much the same slide. i'm not sure why. we can go past this one could be about performance agreement mid point review and performance appraisal. again, we think collaboration and partnership that should not be any surprises. at the end of the other person shall be shocked to find that they are not meeting expectations that is indeed the case. similarly, once we recognize the person throughout the year for publishers. but it performance process is successful if there's continuous communication. the form can be used to document the
3:59 am
performance this objective was met this is not [inaudible] moved to ensuing year or the following conditions that i should note it's not even when it's not carved in stone. things may happen that change the priorities you have legislation or other things happen and maybe a new commission is impaneled may have different priorities. that can be changed, too but again it has been the communication in the form should not be used to disciplinary actions. that is not what it is for. but it should be used to document performance improvements. so if it's for the separate symbol, nikki, you did not complete your objectives in preparing an excellent presentation for the police commission therefore, you have failed. you
4:00 am
better do better next time or there'll be consequences. etc. so that is the general process good as i noted, it is the case that department heads - excuse me - commissions can amend it or you may want to have other forms but it absolutely is a favor to use this one because we know that we will not receive any complaints that it's an unorthodox process. just the three sections we have the first page is simply identifying department head at the second page not show up in the powerpoint but it's an appraisal report summary. the second page was the performance planning goals which i think is right there. that's where you're going to list the smart items which we achieved overly over the fiscal year. the next page we get the comments regarding new overall performance. this is what went well, this is what didn't and areas for growth word of him and even for people are doing amazingly well we always recommend that you didn't fight areas of growth that may be recommend
