SFPD logo
I realize this is probably hand lettered but I'm posting on the off chance someone can point me to something similar. Thanks!

Here are three fonts that are somewhat similar, with colors adjusted to match the logo. Note that the periods in the logo are closely kerned while the periods in the samples push the letters apart.
FuturaCondMedium:


Weight -- close. Letter width -- close.
Waistline for P too high.
Waistline for F -- close.
NeutrafaceCondBold:

Weight -- close. Letter width -- wider.
Waistline for P -- close.
Waistline for F -- too low.
GothamXNarrowMedium:

Weight -- close. Letter width -- wider.
Waistline for P -- close.
Waistline for F -- close.
Square periods instead of round.
I trust that there are also other candidates that match one or more features of the logo.

Looks like Relay Compressed (or Condensed) to me.

Good find Ryuk.
The letter widths in Relay Condensed are too wide but the ones in Relay Compressed are very close. here is a comparison showing, in order, top to bottom, Relay Compressed Bold, Relay Compressed Medium, and the SFPD Logo.


The SFPD Logo stroke weight is a little heavier than Relay Compressed Medium. The letter shapes are quite close. The main difference is the diagonal stroke on the S is slightly more rounded on the logo than in Relay Compressed Medium. The letter width of F is narrower in the Logo. The Logo periods are much smaller.
But most people would notice these differences and Relay Compressed Medium is a reasonable substitute.
