Visitacion Valley to get new police substation with bilingual officers

City officials on Monday are expected to announce plans for a new police substation on Leland Avenue in the Visitacion Valley area staffed by bilingual officers who speak Chinese and Spanish.

In June, School Board Member Shamann Walton and Supervisor Hillary Ronen helped secure resources to open the first police substation on San Bruno Avenue with Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwanese and Spanish bilingual officers.

Walton, who is also running for supervisor in District 10, and Ronen also worked together on the Leland Avenue substation, as well.

Both will be present at Monday’s formal announcement, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the corner of Leland Avenue and Desmond Street. Also expected to be on hand are members of the Visitacion Valley Neighborhood Association and the Visitacion Valley Chinese Residents group.
