SAN FRANCISCO, CA - The California Highway Patrol (CHP) has announced the results of a major operation that spanned a 10-block radius in San Francisco's tenderloin district.

According to Governor Gavin Newsom, the amount of fentanyl seized in the operation is equal to 9.6 million lethal doses.

Additionally, CHP issued 6,044 citations, which ultimately lead to 496 arrests. Fifteen firearms were also recovered. 

In a statement, Newsom said, "These results are a testament to the effective collaboration among state, local, and federal law enforcement in San Francisco. We will continue to work together to get drugs off our streets, address crime, and make our communities safer."

This operation was reportedly started a year ago, when the State of California first began a public safety partnership with the city. Newsom also claimed that in the first quarter of 2024, property crime has decreased 32% and violent crime is down 14%.
