John Jaimerena


The Northern Police District encompasses several district and diverse neighborhoods, including the Western Addition, Pacific Heights, Japantown, Polk Gulch, Russian Hill and the Marina. The district is bounded by Larkin Street, Market Street, Steiner Street to Broadway, and west on Broadway to the Presidio. The north boundary of the district is San Francisco Bay. Although the Northern Police District is geographically one of the smallest, it is one of the most densely populated. The district includes many high occupancy dwellings such as large apartment buildings, senior citizens’ residences, residential hotel, and public housing complexes.

The Northern District is also a favored location for street fairs, celebrations and cultural events. The Fillmore Street Jazz Festival, Polk Street Swing City Festival, Nihonmachi Street Fair, SF Pride Celebration, Culinary Arts Festival, Fleet Week Celebration and Opera Opening all occur in the district, as well as many other events. Very large Halloween and New Year’s Eve celebrations also occur annually in the Northern District. These events add a rich mix to the cultural flavor of our district.

Captain John Jaimerena was born in San Francisco’s Sunset District but grew up on the peninsula. He joined SFPD in January, 1994 and spent much of his early career as a plainclothes and field training officer in the Department’s Southern Station. In 2007, he was promoted to Sergeant and served in the Department’s Robbery Investigations Bureau. A 2012 promotion to Lieutenant led to work at Tenderloin Station with the Gang Task Force. He became Captain of Northern Station in 2016.

“We want our officers to be accessible to the public and to treat our community members like we want our families treated. By working together, we can make our city safer for everyone.”
-Captain John Jaimerena
