The Ingleside Police District encompasses the area south of Cesar Chavez Street to the San Mateo County line, and area west from Highway 101 to Faxon Avenue. Originally built in 1910, Ingleside Station, located just off Balboa Park at San Jose Avenue, underwent a complete renovation while retaining its classic Mission style exterior of stucco and red tile and reopened in 1991. In the Department’s continuing efforts at community outreach, the station includes a community room that can accommodate 50 person, visitor parking and handicapped access.

The Ingleside District is home to many long-standing neighborhoods, including Sherwood Forest, Mt. Davidson, Westwood Park, Miraloma Park, Glen Park-Sunnyside, Diamond Heights, Bernal Heights, Upper Noe, Mission Corridor, the Excelsior and St. Francis Wood, New Mission Terrace, Crocker Amazon, St. Mary's Park, Silver Terrace, Portola, Sunnydale, Visitacion Valley, Precita Park, Cayuga, Outer Mission, and Holly Park. San Francisco City College is located in this district also.

Captain Joseph “Joe” McFadden is a fourth generation San Franciscan who grew up in the Mission District. He was encouraged to pursue a law enforcement career by his late brother Michael, a Park station patrol officer. With more than 27 years in the SFPD, Captain McFadden began his law enforcement career as an Ingleside station patrol officer, and has served in various units of the Department, including Field Operations, Tactical (SWAT) Team, Investigations Bureau, Management Control/Internal Affairs, Homeland Security, and Crime Scene Investigations. He has also served as an instructor at the SFPD Academy, and as an expert /instructor on domestic violence training for Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) and Institute of Criminal Investigation (ICI).

“Earning community trust is paramount to those that we serve on a daily basis,”... “The people of the Ingleside District are like my extended family and their concerns are shared with all the officers here at the great Company H.”
-Captain Joe McFadden
