Veteran cop challenging POA leadership

Four officers are challenging the leadership of the San Francisco Police Officers Association and one of the main issues is the union’s purchase of the building housing Paragon bar and restaurant next to AT&T Park.

Steve Landi and three other officers are taking on President Gary Delagnes and the current leadership in an election in January. Landi became a household name in the late 1990s when he was indicted in a corruption scandal in which police were accused of stealing from drug dealers. A jury acquitted Landi in 1997.

 Landi says the decision of the union to purchase Paragon was never vetted with the rank-and-file before the move was made.

 “$3 MILLION of your membership money was used to purchase a commercial property and restaurant,” Landi writes on a website. “You were never informed of this or allowed to discuss it until the ink was dry on the contract signed by your current leadership.”
