11. When a mayor pushes a policy like this, it is reasonable to wonder whether quotas will be

 

given to individual cops? Some police departments have quotas for traffic citations, and either give direct orders for such quotas or use peer pressure. Will the San Francisco police keep statistics and measure the performance of individual officers? Will the City do so along with measuring the performance of sergeants, lieutenants, etc?

And will mayoral demands for even more stop-and-gropes increase over time?

According to the New York Civil Liberties Union
An analysis by the NYCLU revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002

With respect to the use of this tactic and your mentioning of creeping fascism,
In 2002, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 97,296 times.
...
In 2011, New Yorkers were stopped by the police 685,724 times.
