BOMA San Francisco Members Meet with Chris Cunnie - Candidate for San Francisco Sheriff

Chris Cunnie
BOMA San Francisco Members:

BOMA members had the opportunity to meet one of candidates running for San Francisco Sheriff in the November election, Chris Cunnie.

Mr. Cunnie spoke to his previous experience as a twice-decorated police officer who served as head of the Police Officers Association, head of Emergency Communications under Mayor Gavin Newsom, head of Investigations under then District Attorney Kamala Harris and Undersheriff for Sheriff Michael Hennessey. He noted his leadership in the treatment community as President of the Board of Directors of San Francisco’s storied Walden House and as a board member of the California Narcotic Addict Evaluation Authority (established under California Proposition 36).

In addition to his service in San Francisco’s law enforcement and treatment communities, Chris has worked in Sacramento to coordinate statewide public safety efforts and represented the 90,000 men and women of law enforcement in California as Vice-President of the California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations. He has been twice decorated with the medal of valor in the San Francisco Police Department and awarded The Lifetime Labor Achievement award from the statewide Golden Badge Foundation.

He mentioned that his absolute priority is keeping the City safe - and that he has the skill-set to make that a reality.  For example, Mr. Cunnie has a working understanding of the recently approved realignment program  - the transition of inmates from the state to the counties -  and feels that the City can absorb an increase in the prison population all while utilizing the current programs in place within the Sheriff's Department and partnerships with the treatment community and job training programs.
