SF officer under investigation again

It looks like Hanley Chan, a longtime San Francisco Patrol Special officer and candidate for the Broadmoor Police Commission, is in trouble again.

The San Francisco Police Department, which oversees the Gold Rush-era security detail known as the Patrol Special, has leveled charges against Chan that he failed to keep valid worker’s compensation insurance while supervising an assistant patrol special officer, according to Police Commission documents.

That assistant experienced a stroke while on duty – and all indications are that he won’t be covered for disability.

Chan has already come under fire for a couple incidents, including a macho moment at a Los Angeles firing range and campaign material that falsely implied he was already an employee of the Broadmoor Police Commission.

The San Francisco Police Commission will assign a commissioner to his latest disciplinary case Wednesday night.
