San Francisco Police Department: It Gets Better

Sfpd

Just released. This one is outstanding.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Writes the SFPD:

The making of this video was a concerted effort by numerous members of the SFPD with the assistance of San Francisco film maker Shawn Northcutt who produced and edited the video along with San Francisco local musician Lynden Bair who developed the musical score.

"Today our Police Department joins the nationwide campaign to end bullying of LGBT youth by producing a heartfelt video that provides a message of hope and encouragement that it will get better," said Mayor Ed Lee. "San Francisco is a city that prides itself on embracing equality for all and this video is another great example of our commitment to reinforcing our City's values."

Chief Greg Suhr wants youth to know that it really does get better. "This is a first of its kind video for the SFPD and for any law enforcement agency in the United States. I hope this message of encouragement will give hope to anyone who might be bullied because of who they are. The members of the SFPD will continue to work with all young people and reach out to the communities, as mentors and role models."

  1. I think that sensitivity must be passed to people who need help. I want to congratulate all the officers who gave their testimonies because I imagine how hard it was to do it. How much courage to expose to the world and that makes all the difference. Despite being a liberal country, here in Brazil, the police still act very harsh and corrupt, and they need to learn how to respect others, even being gay, black, foreign, ... I do not speak or write English very well, but I hope you understand the message. I do hope that one day the Brazilian police will have the courage and bravery that you had. God bless you!
