Since 1952, there has been an organization dedicated to representing the majority of the professional men and women of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department who protect and serve the City and County of San Francisco. That organization is known as the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (SFDSA.)
The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association’s goal is to professionally represent the approximately 750 Deputy Sheriffs and Senior Deputy Sheriffs that comprise the majority of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department.
In order to achieve this goal, the SFDSA strives to promote a high level of commitment to public safety and professionalism within the ranks of the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department via an emphasis on education, legal support, community outreach and trust building.
So that the citizens of San Francisco may enjoy an exceptional level of law enforcement protection by attracting and retaining the best and brightest Deputy Sheriffs, balanced with a focus on the responsible use of tax dollars, the SFDSA strives to ensure that the wages of Deputy Sheriffs are competitive to those being paid to Deputy Sheriffs in similar cities facing similar crime and danger.
The City and County of San Francisco faces many challenges. With big city crime and the challenges of dangerous gang activity and violence comes the need to maintain a highly professional Sheriff’s Department. The San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association is committed to partnering with our community and city leaders to make San Francisco a safer place and maintain it as a great city to live, work and raise a family.
