court. SF APD created these templates working with the Sheriff's Department. These forms are specific to San Francisco
and meet the joint
needs of APD and SFSD, but can easily be customized to your County or used as a guide.
The SWAP eligible notation allows the
SF Sheriff to release PRCS's to SWAP if crowding becomes in issue.
SFSD would then notify SFAPD.
