In honor of Black History Month, the POA has produced a video Public Service Announcement (watch below). Although the POA contributes to many nonprofit organizations that serve our community, we want to emphasize Operation Genesis this month. This organization was founded by one of our own, Officer Jason Johnson. For the past four years, with the generous support from the POA, Officer Johnson has taken groups of inner city kids from the Bayview Hunters Point on a trip to the West African country of Ghana. These youths experienced the culture of a different country and hopefully discover similarities with children half a world away.

The POA is proud to be partnered with this worthy organization.

Vicki LewisBless you all! Thank you for all you are willing to do. I will be praying every day for your protection, success and family connection time. On those days you feel forgotten, you aren't. Though you will invariably see the ugliness in society, remember you are part of making a better way because of your integrity. And we will keep doing our part to better society and be there for our neighbors too. After all, we are a community.1 week ago   ·  1
