Meet new district station police captains

The police captain shuffle becomes official this weekend for almost every district station. Here’s the breakdown:

Captain Anna Brown will take over at Central Station, which was headed by Capt. James Dudley. Dudley, a vocal opponent of nightclub rowdiness along the Broadway corridor, was promoted to commander.

Capt. Dominic Celaya heads over to the Tenderloin to command that district station. Former Tenderloin Capt. Gary Jimenez heads to night duty along with former Taraval Station Capt. Paul Chignell.

Captain Denise Schmitt will command Taraval Station.

Capt. Anne Mannix moves from Southern Station to command Northern Station, a spot vacated by Capt. Al Casciato – who received a commendation from Supervisor Michela Alioto Pier this week.

Capt. Greg Corrales, who has been dogged by his implication in the famed Fajitagate case, was reassigned to head Mission Station, again, moving Capt. Steve Tacchini to Corrales’ former spot in the traffic division.

And recently demoted Capt. Greg Suhr will command arguably the toughest station in town, the Bayview.

The SF Police Officers Association points out that there are now four female officers commanding district stations, although there is reportedly some grumbling from black officers who feel they were short-changed in the promotion process.
