We don't know what the cost was for at least thirty, perhaps more, SFPD officers and such for last month's big first game of the season. Let's follow my email trail with the department:
"You requested 'Records related to the SFPD’s involvement at the San Francisco Giant’s opening day on April 13, 2015.' In response to your request, SFPD's response is below.
"1. Your requested 'Names of all officers or personnel, their divisions or bureaus, assigned to the ball park and their duties that day.' Please find attached a responsive spreadsheet, including names of officers, their divisions and duties. The Department is still in the process of reviewing additional responsive documents, to include total number of officers and costs.
"We will endeavor to produce records, for requests numbered 1 and 2, cost of total police time and expenses for SFPD coverage at the game, on an incremental or rolling basis, once the information becomes available.
"3. You requested 'Copies of all videos recorded and duplicates of all photos snapped. For the last item, I wish to receive those materials in their native format.' Two (2) CDs which include photos and video of the San Francisco Giants opening day, on April 13, 2015, will be provided."
Let's see how much longer it takes for the department to determine total number of officers at the game and the tab to taxpayers. Stay tuned.
