Covering the northwest corner of the city, the Richmond police district is largely residential, but also includes the long commercial, shopping, and restaurant corridors of Geary Boulevard and Clement Street, most of Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the University of San Francisco campus.
Built in 1927 in a red-brick Romanesque Revival style, the station was remodeled and reopened in 1996. In keeping with the desires of many local residents and merchants, all the main original design elements were retained. Additions were constructed of reinforced concrete and steel, and the seismically upgraded station includes a community room, a lunch and exercise room for officers, expanded locker space and public art.
Captain Alexa O’Brien was born in San Francisco’s Children’s Hospital and grew up in the Marina and Richmond Districts. She earned a BA degree in sociology with a minor in criminology from University of San Francisco before graduating from SFPD academy in 2000. Captain O’Brien has served at Southern, Mission, Northern, Park and Ingleside stations. Along with patrol assignments, she has served in the Vice and Night Investigations Units, and led the Homicide Detail and Major Crimes Unit. She was promoted to Captain of Richmond station in March 2017.
“Richmond station is where I grew up - this is home,” says Captain O’Brien. “I really want the officers to treat it like their home and treat people like they’d treat their families. We’re all part of the community and we’re one. We all need to be kind to each other and treat each other with respect.”
