Join us this month at HANC’s General Membership meeting on May 9th at the Park Branch Library, beginning at 7 pm to hear and discuss plans for the development of a new supportive housing program at 1500 Page (at Masonic) and for a Q and A session with Park Station’s Capt. Corrales.
Captain Corrales is a graduate of the University of San Francisco and the National Academy and the Marines. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, SFPD Inspector Liane Corrales (retired). Captain Corrales is also a 43 year veteran of the San Francisco Police Department and has held many positions including, SFPD Traffic division, Captain at Mission station & Park station, SFPD SFO Division and many others as they tend to rotate the captains amongst the different stations. He also had a near “hit 'n run” at the Sheriff's position but I think we all know what happened there.
Captain Corrales will be retiring from Police Department very soon, so come one, come all. This is your chance to “interrogate” the Captain and get the skinny on his thoughts about the looming retirement en masse for the SFPD, as there are said to be anywhere from 300 to 1400 officers retiring and barely a trickle of new graduation classes planned to fill those voids. Are we looking at SFPD manifesting itself into what we see with the OPD (Oakland Police Department)
