A San Francisco Chronicle three-part series found that the San Francisco Police Department solves just 28 percent of the city's violent crimes--the worst big city record for violent crime clearance in the U.S. "People who are robbed, stabbed or shot in San Francisco have no guarantee that detectives for the San Francisco Police Department will even investigate the crimes. In fact, the department routinely files away with no investigation some 70 percent of the robberies and serious assaults that occur in the city."
