Cops to coach basketball team of Sunnydale sixth-graders

Ingleside Police Station – which has become a hub of innovation since it became a testing ground for San Francisco Police Department reforms earlier this year – is reaching out to kids in one of The City’s roughest public housing projects.

With the help of the San Francisco Police Activities League, Ingleside Capt. David Lazar and his officers are putting together a sixth-grade, co-ed basketball team. Four Ingleside officers have been named as coaches to lead the team, which is comprised of kids from the Sunnydale projects.
