Foley says San Francisco may be a big city but in the city boundaries  are many small districts and the neighbors and business people create their own small community.

Foley says his first patrol partner at SFPD moved to Nevada City with her husband 25 years ago and he has been a frequent visitor to Nevada County as part of that friendship.  He says it’s partly that connection why he is here now as Chief.

And because San Francisco Police Department  has it’s own police retirement system, there will not be a conflict with the state Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) in hiring  Foley.
