Mayor Lee on San Francisco Police Officer Elia Lewin-Tankel
“Our hearts are with Officer Elia Lewin-Tankel, who remains hospitalized in critical condition.
During his five years with the San Francisco Police Department, Elia has proven himself to be a dedicated officer, committed to the residents of the communities he serves. As a Purple Heart recipient, he embodies the police department’s ideals of selflessness, bravery and courage.
Our police officers put themselves in harm’s way every time they report to duty. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their service.
We are closely monitoring Elia’s condition and sending our thoughts and prayers to his family during this difficult time.”
