Back in 1953, a small group of San Francisco policemen created SFPCU based on their mutual financial needs and unpaid bills. They wished to avoid the high cost of borrowing money from loan companies and banks, so they formed a committee and opened the credit union in the old out building behind Park Station. A partition was built and SFPCU went into business in the old horse stables.

In June 2003, we expanded our membership to include other California fire and emergency medical technician agencies based on our common bonds. Today, SFPCU has more than 32,000 members and more than $700 million in assets.


SFPCU strives to be the trusted primary financial institution for its members while maintaining earnings and reserves that promote sound growth. SPFCU will provide exceptional service, outstanding products and expert guidance to help our members prosper.
