SF Deputies Saved a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Employee’s Life

On April 18th, 2015 the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department took great pride in honoring four of our own at the Lion’s Club 52nd Annual Peace Officers, Firefighters and Sheriffs Awards Banquet. Up for accolades for acts above and beyond the call of duty are Sgt. Restauro, Sr. Deputy Clauzel, Deputy Li and Deputy Simms.

In February of 2015, San Francisco Sheriff’s Sgt. Restauro and San Francisco Sheriff’s Sr. Deputy Clauzel intervened to save the life of a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) employee.  The employee, who was depressed and suicidal, went missing after brandishing a razor.  During their search, Sgt. Restauro and Sr. Deputy Clauzel contacted law enforcement departments from as far away as Arizona, utilized ingenuity in following up on various investigative leads, and worked closely with the employee’s family.

As a result of their efforts, Sgt. Restauro and Sr. Deputy Clauzel located and took the employee to a psychiatric care facility.
