San Francisco safety officers Captain Stephen Tilton (sheriff's department), Officer Kathryn Winters (police department), Lieutenant Jonathan Baxter (fire department), and Undersheriff Joseph Engler and Chief Deputy Kevin Fisher-Paulson (sheriff's department) stood outside San Francisco County Jail #3 in San Bruno June 1 after raising the rainbow flag. This is the second year the sheriff's department has raised the Pride flag, and this year officials invited their colleagues from the police and fire departments in solidarity against the uniform ban instituted by the San Francisco Pride board for the June 26 parade.
