Skip to comments.SFPD to suspend collaboration with FBI counterterrorism program

San Francisco police will suspend the departments much-criticized collaboration with FBI counterterrorism efforts, police said Wednesday, in an announcement that was celebrated by civil liberties and immigration advocates who have long called for stricter oversight of local participation in federal enforcement.
The announcement comes as San Francisco moves to disengage from the federal government under the Trump administration, especially in regard to the presidents directives on immigration and the treatment of Muslims.
The Joint Terrorism Task Force, which has two full-time city officers assigned to it, was established in 2007, when the police force entered into an agreement with the FBI that authorized intelligence-gathering by San Francisco officers of people engaged in First Amendment activities such as religious services, protests and political assemblies.
Advocates penned a letter to the Police Commission last month raising concerns that the department would follow federal law over local ordinances such as San Franciscos sanctuary city policy, which limits city employees cooperation with federal immigration agents.
Under the Trump administration, they said, it is more important than ever that San Francisco officers commit to enforcing San Francisco policies.

America’s enemies will never attack San Francisco.
They already conquered it.
Not only is this laying out the welcome mat to terrorists, but I would expect corruption within the SFPD and elsewhere in San Francisco government to ramp up to unprecedented levels.
They will soon learn a lesson about the primacy of Federal law.
Sessions will be aboard in a week or two.
SF needs an earthquake to at least try and shake some sense into these idiots and deviants!
It’s an invitation to ISIS...
Boycott anything and everything from SF.
Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.
Lol, if this keeps up they’ll probably start flying a rainbow version of the Confederate Battle Flag.
It’s like they’re all trying to divorce themselves from the federal govt.......but not really. Lol
Paging Inspector Callahan, paging Inspector Callahan, please pickup the White Courtesy Phone.
Your Department needs you.
Their economy would suffer a little bit if the Commander In Chief ordered all military ships and all military personnel on bases in the area to evacuate immediately.
Lt. Stone and Insp. Keller are also needed.
Chief Ironside couldn’t hurt either.
Hey Isis types....look over here.
San Frncisco doesn’t hate you so no need to attack them.
Why are federal dollars still going to that cesspool? Cut off every nickle for transportation, grants, retirements, public safety, every single penny. Do it now! Make them an example for the rest of the nation. Remember that Reagan established himself with PATCO. This is Trump’s defining moment.
So, San Francisco is basically inviting ISIS to the Folsom Street Fair?
Unfortunately, that probably means SF will be their base, like Brussels for Paris. They’ll probably strike somewhere else in the state.
