San Francisco Firefighters Volunteer to Patrol Chinatown Streets

Off-duty San Francisco firefighters have stepped up to patrol the streets of Chinatown in efforts to end the violence on Asian Americans.

“While we don’t want them to act on criminal activity, we do want everyone to be safe, to keep the members of the community safe, and to watch out for the elderly and vulnerable,” San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto shared with KPIX.

Retired San Francisco Fire Marshal Paul Chin and Asian Firefighters Association President John Choy are among those participating in the patrols.

The volunteer group has been giving out cards with a newly launched tip-line to help Chinese speakers report crimes.
