Jane Warner spent two decades keeping the peace in the city's Castro, Noe Valley and Mission neighborhoods as a San Francisco Patrol Special Police Officer. To her many friends, she was simply known as "Officer Jane".
She was dedicated not only to the business owners who contracted with her for her neighborbood safety services, but also to protecting the residents and visitors in the area she patrolled. She was a long time columnist for the Bay Area Reporter, penning the LGBT crime column.
Her career began in Hawaii, first as a Deputy Sheriff and later as a undercover police officer for the Honolulu Police Department. She became the first woman and out lesbian officer in the San Anselmo Police Department.
In addition to her love of law enforcement, Jane Warner loved animals and dogs in particular, captured her heart.
The City and County of San Francisco dedicated the Jane Warner Plaza on what would have been her 54th birthday, November 7th, 2010.
