In this link Captain Duke refers to the Harbor Police District as one of the districts of the San Francisco Police Force.

Good luck in your research.

Jay: i remember the Harbor Police. they were offically brought under the auspices of the SFPD in the late 1970S and phased out.

THe Harbor Police were a seperate Police Department until the late 70s/early 80s. They were absorbed into the SFPD. There was actually a few officers who were classified as Harbor Police and not "Q-2" SFPD Officer, even though they were absorbed. San Francisco is funny that way.
