The San Francisco police chief is urging Mayor Ed Lee to veto local legislation that would put restrictions on cops who work with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force , the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
That word comes in wake of local legislation passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors that would require a written agreement between the FBI and the police department that would prevent S.F. cops from engaging in surveillance of people who were not suspected of crimes.

Currently, three cops work with the FBI task force.
