Proactive Policing


A 20-year veteran of the San Francisco Police Department is facing internal charges of conduct reflecting discredit on the department after allegedly using police computers to find two women and visit them on duty for no reason. Phillip Gonzales says it was simply community policing. Gonzales allegedly ran checks on several people he went to grammar school with and went to visit one of them, a woman who says they were never friends and had not seen each other in 35 years. He also allegedly visited another woman he'd met several years earlier when he went to investigate an obscene phone call.
