San Francisco Chief Accepts DA Post
January 10, 2011
Less than 18 months after he was sworn in to lead the San Francisco Police Department, George Gascon accepted a role as top prosecutor by Mayor Gavin Newsom, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
Gascon replaces outgoing District Attorney Kamela Harris, who won election in November as state Attorney General.
Assistant Chief Jeff Godown takes over the department in the interim, while the San Francisco Police Commission searches for a replacement chief. The new chief will likely come from within the department, because the job is only guaranteed through the end of the year when a new mayor is elected.
