       Passage of Proposition 209 has not deterred my goal of reaching utmost diversity and
representation of minorities and women in the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department.

         While controversy over passage of Proposition 209 in California continues to rage and its effect
on affirmative action recruitment and hiring policies is still unclear, the San Francisco Sheriff’s
Department renews its commitment to diversity and excellence in its work force. Since we began going
into San Francisco communities nearly 20 years ago to reach populations historically underrepresented
in law enforcement, we have had unprecedented success. Because of this proactive approach, we
continue to lead national law enforcement in the recruitment, hiring, promotion, training and assignment
of minority and women peace officers. Our efforts have been rewarded with a stable, committed,
diverse staff that reflects the community we serve.

         This year more women and minorities than ever before have been promoted to the highest ranks
in the department. The first woman undersheriff in the state, Mary Ann de Souza, took over the second-
highest position in the department in April. Of the three chief deputies in the department, two are women
and one is Latino. Of the six captains, four are women or minorities. The number of Asian and Filipino
sworn personnel increased this year to 13 and 11 percent respectively, well above the national averages
of four and one percent.

        Achieving these goals has been no accident. It has long been my policy to be uncompromising in
providing equal employment opportunities to all regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin,
sexual orientation, religion, age, physical handicap or political affiliation.

       During recruitment we reach out to those historically bypassed by law enforcement: African-
American, Asian, Filipino, Latino, Native American and Pacific Islander men and women, as well as
members of the lesbian and gay communities.

        The response is always gratifying. Of the 2,436 people who registered at our last recruitment,
84 percent were women or minority candidates. Surprisingly even this high figure was down somewhat
from previous recruitment's when as many as 92 percent of potential recruits were women or minorities.
Because of this broad based approach to recruitment, we have a department that is diverse, efficient,
and effective.

       While schools, universities and government agencies throughout California struggle to implement
Proposition 209 in the face of serving an enormously diverse populace, the San Francisco Sheriff’s
Department remains committed to the spirit of affirmative action.

         The simple truth is affirmative action works. It works not only for those we recruit, but for the
community as a whole. A diverse staff bridges the gap between law enforcement and the people they
serve. It also provides law enforcement careers to those who have been traditionally excluded from
consideration, but as it turns out, often make outstanding peace officers.
