Man Thanks SF Officer For Arresting Him, Saving His Life

A man arrested several times in San Francisco’s Tenderloin thanked the officer who took him into custody most recently.

The SF Police Department tweeted Thomas Wolf’s mug shot back in June after he was arrested again for selling drugs.

Last month, Wolf replied to that tweet, saying he was 8 months clean and sober and thanking Officer Robert Gilson for saving his life.

“That’s why I became a police officer, to help people, to see it come to fruition,” Gilson said. “Tom did most of the work, but it’s pretty cool. I was able to give him the push in the right direction.”

The pair had a chance to meet Monday, a special moment for both of them.
