San Francisco officer pulled for use of force

By Susan Sward,
The San Francisco Chronicle

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. San Francisco police Officer Jesse Serna, who has been involved in five incidents in the last nine months in which citizens accused him of using excessive force without provocation, has been removed from street duty, the department said Wednesday.

Serna, a 12-year veteran who had been stationed in North Beach, has been assigned to an undisclosed "non-public-contact'' position, police spokesman Sgt. Neville Gittens said. Serna was transferred based on a review of his record that Chief Heather Fong ordered after The Chronicle detailed four of the incidents in a story last month, Gittens said.
