Back to School: As summer draws to a close, back-to-school season will be in full effect. Safety should be a priority for every family as children return to classrooms this fall. It’s crucial that all motorists understand how to safely share the roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists. It’s also a good time for parents and children to talk about how to stay safe at school.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of Monterey, O’Shaughnessy and Bosworth.  The break ins are occurring around the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please report any suspicious activity to the police.  Do not leave valuables in your cars.

Crime Alert: Precita Park / Bernal Heights Area;  During the extended labor day holiday there were a total of 32 vehicles stolen in the Ingleside district as of 08/30/2013. Eight of those stolen vehicles were taken from the Precita Park and Bernal Heights area. Be sure to secure your vehicle (windows up, doors locked) before you leave your car parked on the street. Consider looking into getting an alarm or anti theft device such as a steering wheel club. This, for the most part, should deter most culprits from stealing your car. If you want to make it that much more difficult, consider installing a kill switch. Older model Hondas and Toyotas are among the most popular and easiest vehicles to steal.

District Wide Burglaries in the Ingleside: In The Last month of August there have been 7 reported burglaries throughout the district. 4 of those burglaries alone have taken place in the Bernal Heights area. The different methods of entries have been through unlocked windows, sliding glass doors, unlocked side doors, unlocked garages and in one case through a doggie door where the perpetrator squeezed themselves through the small opening. Also, homes under construction have been targeted and expensive tools and appliances have been taken. As the warmer weather of fall approaches, make sure to secure your residence and that all your windows and doors are locked before leaving. If you happen to see any suspicious activity around your neighborhood that looks odd or out of place, call the police immediately.  

Crime Alert:  An increase of robberies and thefts has been occurring in and around the Balboa BART Station and City College area. There have been five robberies in the last couple weeks alone in this area. Be vigilant of your surroundings and follow the safety tips below.

Serious Incidents:

8:20am       Mission/Silver                         Robbery
Officers Wong and Chang were sent to meet with a victim of a robbery that took place in the area of Mission and Silver Avenue.  The victim told the officers that she was waiting for the MUNI bus when three unknown females’ suspects ran up to her and surrounded her. One suspect stood by as a look out, while the other two questioned her, asking “where you from”.  When the victim replied, “from nowhere,” the suspects began assaulting her. They then grabbed the victim’s satchel. Being out numbered and fearing for her safety, the victim ran away and called for the police once she was safe. The officers searched the area to no avail. The officers did find surveillance cameras in the area, but unfortunately none of the cameras had a clear view of where the robbery took place. Report Number: 130778711
