San Francisco Mayor Expected To Name New Police Chief This Week

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is expected to announce his pick for the city’s permanent police chief this week, choosing from one of three names given to him by the police commission.

Lee has been mulling the decision for weeks. KCBS and Chronicle insider Phil Matier reports in his Matier and Ross column in the San Francisco Chronicle that the choice is between Bayview Station Captain Greg Suhr, Commander Daniel Mahoney and an unnamed outsider.

“In talking with previous chiefs, I wanted to be in line with what their thoughts are to help me do this,” Lee said. “It’s an important decision that I don’t take lightly at all.”

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

Whoever is picked could have a short tenure, as a new mayor will take office early next year and that person could select a new chief.

Interim Police Chief Jeff Godown has been running the department since former chief George Gascón took over as San Francisco District Attorney in January.
