Castro & CCOP Mourn The Passing of Officer John Fitzinger

It is with deep sorrow that we heard of the passing of Patrol Special Police Officer, and Castro beat owner, John Fitzinger on Friday October 6th and we pass this information on through our web site.

Officer Fitzinger took over the Castro Patrol Special Police beat following the death of Patrol Special Police Officer Jane Warner, and was eventually successful in purchasing the beat following approval by the Police Commission from former beat owner Serge White.  Officer Fitzinger was an amazing community Police Officer, committed and dedicated to absolutely everyone in the Castro, and everyone who visited the Castro.

CCOP worked very closely with Officer Fitzinger and relied heavily upon his experience, knowledge, and on more that one occasion, his back-up and support when we were on patrol.  John always brought a sense of calm and professionalism to every situation.

We, and the entire Castro community, will greatly miss this incredible Officer and friend.

Services in celebration of Officer John Fitzinger’s life will take place:

Friday October 20, 2017 @ 11 AM – St. Paul’s Church, 221 Valley Street, San Francisco, CA and will be followed by a reception at the Patio Cafe, 531 Castro Street, San Francisco, CA.
