SF cop decides to go private on termination decision

San Francisco police Inspector Marvetia Richardson was one of the few officers who asked to have her disciplinary case vetted by the Police Commission in an open hearing.

 

We thought the public would want to know what some of the 11 charges leveled against the 15-year-veteran were before the Police Commission voted on whether they were valid or not. That could be why Richardson quickly changed her mind before the decision came down Wednesday evening.

 

Her attorney, who disputed a number of the claims as false or past the statute of limitations, had the Police Commission go into closed session before voting. Not many cops get fired from the San Francisco Police Department – only three in the last decade, to be exact.
