USHERING IN A NEW ERA OF GENDER JUSTICE, DOWNTOWN — New San Diego Chief of Police Shelley Zimmerman says that her first order of business is "obviously, the restoration of trust between the Department and the community, specifically, the female part of the community. The women of San Diego must know that the police are there to protect them from unwanted sexual contact, and not to inflict said unwanted sexual contact. To that end, we are initiating a series of retraining initiatives designed to foster respect and concern for women as citizens, as San Diegans, and as people."
Asked if these initiatives included the printing and distribution of a so-called Touch Guide, Zimmerman refused to comment. But SD on the QT was able to obtain a photograph (left) of what appears to be a cover photo for an SDPD internal publication. And a source, speaking on condition of anonymity, says that ex-Chief Lansdowne foreword is "scorching." Ooh la la!
