About the SFPD Richmond Station
The Richmond Police District encompasses the northwest corner of the city. Although it’s mostly residential, it also includes the long commercial, shopping and restaurant corridors of Geary Boulevard and Clement Street, in addition to most of Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the campus of the University of San Francisco.
The SFPD Richmond station, built in 1927 is a single-story, red- brick building with arched doors, in the Romanesque Revival style. Remodeled and upgraded for earthquake safety in 1996, it includes a community room and a lunch and exercise room for officers. This station is part of the San Francisco Police Department's Golden Gate Division.
