Two years ago, right before Halloween, San Francisco Police Captain Gary Jimenez was put in charge of the Tenderloin Station.
Was that a trick or a treat?
Certainly, Jimenez isn't your typical cop. He can be unconventional, blunt and offbeat. He's come up with some comments that left the higher-ups wincing. He's also got some ideas - like his recent suggestion to start a Tenderloin safe injection center where drug addicts could shoot up under medical supervision - that have residents sputtering in opposition.
