The original station, known as South East Station and later as Potrero Station, was built in 1915 to serve the residents of Potrero Hill and Bayview. In 1987, voters approved a bond measure to build a new station at 201 Williams Avenue. Bayview Station opened in February 1997.

The Bayview Police District covers one of the largest areas and includes the southeastern part of the city, extending along the eastern edge of McClaren Park (Cambridge Street) to the Bay and south from Channel Street to the San Mateo County line.

Bayview is a cohesive determined community that understands how it can play a great role in keeping it's rich historic character but welcome the development to the waterfront in the years to come. Bayview Station proudly serves the following neighborhoods: Third Street, Portola, Dogpatch, Potrero Hill, Silver Terrace, Hunter's Point, India Basin, Candlestick, and Bayview Hill.

Captain Steven Ford grew up in San Francisco’s Ingleside district in the Oceanview area and went to Westmoor High School in Daly City. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from San Francisco State University, a Master's degree from California State University Long Beach and is currently completing doctoral coursework at St. Mary’s College of California. His law enforcement background includes assignments in patrol, investigations and administrative positions in the Internal Affairs Division, Staff Services Division, and Professional Standards Principled Policing Bureau.

"I believe in promoting positive community engagement through collaboration, leadership, and law enforcement professionalism. I look forward to working with all of you to ensure the Bayview District is safe, vibrant, and healthy.”
