The Castro CBD contracts with S.F. Patrol Special Police to provide additional security for our public places. The Castro CBD joins with other merchants in the neighborhood to pay for Patrol Special services. Currently funding is available to hire one Patrol Special officer to walk the beat in the neighborhood during the evening hours.
The CBD’s funds the Patrol Special officer to specifically walk through and monitor activity at the Jane Warner Plaza (17th and Castro St.), Harvey Milk Plaza, the bikeway behind Safeway (the Wiggle) and to monitor activity at the public restroom on the north side of Market St. in front of the Safeway shopping center. Monthly reports of the Patrol Special’s work are available from the Castro CBD.
