Chief Hurtt still in the running for SFPD top job

Happy Friday!

Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt is one of three finalists for the top cop job in San Francisco, sources have told the San Francisco Chronicle.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has selected the city’s next police chief, but he said Thursday his pick is thinking twice about accepting the job after a Board of Supervisors committee voted to strip public safety agencies of tens of millions of dollars in funding.


The Board of Supervisors budget committee voted Wednesday to rewrite parts of Newsom’s interim budget. Traditionally, the board rubber stamps the interim budget, but the committee voted to strip $82 million out of the police, fire and sheriff’s departments to reverse cuts to the health and social services programs.

I'll bet some camera revenue could generate replacement funds.

And then there's this:

Hurtt could not be reached for comment.


Hurtt is out of the office this week, HPD spokeswoman Jodi Silva said.

Phoenix is lovely this time of year.
