9:28 pm
they cared enough to go that extra mile to protect the city and county of san francisco. and its citizens. but it is no wonder that we are gathered here in this place to name some individuals. because this is what it looks like. an extraordinary police department. but they should be extraordinary. because it is my privilege to sit with these ladies and gentlemen who have the privilege of working alongside of an extraordinary command staff, extraordinary captains, and extraordinary police chief. today you will hear stories of sacrifice, of danger, of caring of others before they cared for themselves.
