Central Station is aptly named as it is located in the central portion of San Francisco, the center of tourism, commerce, entertainment and civic events. The district comprises the Financial district, Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, and three famous hills: Telegraph, Nob and Russian. Seven of ten major tourist attractions in San Francisco are located in the Central District. In 2002, it is estimated that over 13 million tourists visited attractions within the Central Police District.

The District Police Commission Meeting is held in October at the Central Police Station.

Captain Paul Yep was born at San Francisco’s Chinese Hospital and raised in Chinatown. He attended Lowell High School and earned a BA degree in Business Administration from San Francisco State University. He joined the San Francisco Police Department in 1996, serving as a patrol officer at Central, Northern, Southern and Taraval Police Stations. He has also worked in the Community Relations Unit, Domestic Violence Reduction Unit, Vice Crimes Division, Station Investigations Teams and was the Director of Basic Training for the Police Academy until his promotion to Captain in 2016.

“Community policing is both a philosophy and an organizational strategy. The officers of Central Station strive to deliver the best police services through strong community partnerships. Our goal stands to ensure public safety, fight crime and improve the quality of life for all.”
