San Francisco Police Commission taking applications for permanent chief 

Tell your friend who’s been unemployed for eight months and keeps drinking your beer that you’ve found just the right job for him.

The San Francisco Police Commission is advertising the job of police chief on their website as they try to fill the shoes of former Chief George Gascon, who left the position at the beginning of January when he was appointed district attorney.

Gascon’s former assistant chief, Jeff Godown, has taken the position on an interim basis, but the police commission will consider both him and other candidates when deciding on the permanent position — though the position is only “permanent” only until the next mayor is elected later this year.

The position pays $292,630, plus benefits — more information about compensation can be found here

The new chief must have at least 10 years experience of “progressively responsible law enforcement experience.” The successful candidate will have spent time in both patrol and investigative functions.

The candidate field will be narrowed by the commission, and then Mayor Ed Lee will make the final appointment.

The application is due 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 8, so get on it!
