Nov. 19, 2013

 Incident Date:
Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on December 17, 2013.  Thank you.

Outstanding Police Work:  Members of the Ingleside Police Station have been hard at work, while putting their lives on the line, and recovered a total of five guns between a five day period, beginning Oct 31, 2013 to Nov 5, 2013. Among the weapons recovered were three handguns, one shotgun and one Tech-9 sub-machine gun all stemming from four separate incidents. Of the five subjects taken into custody, two were on probation and had extensive police records. We strongly believe that these great arrests may have prevented some serious crimes from taking place. Thanks to these great officers, the streets are a little saferJ.

The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together. The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  NERT also offers continuing training for graduates and activities that support building robust neighborhood teams.  For more information, visit the NERT website at, or contact Lt. Erica Arteseros at (415)970-2022 or

Are you someone who is interested in disaster preparedness and wants to help out your community while working hand in hand with law enforcement? Then the ALERT program is for you!                                     
                                            What is the A.L.E.R.T. Program?

The San Francisco Police Department has developed a volunteer citizen disaster preparedness program. The Auxiliary Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) is modeled after and works in partnership with the San Francisco Fire Department's Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT). The ALERT program will train members of the public to assist law enforcement in essential tasks after a major disaster. Such tasks may include: traffic control, foot patrol of business and residential areas, and reporting criminal activity. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and live, work, or attend high school in San Francisco.

Three steps to becoming an
A.L.E.R.T. volunteer:
1. Complete NERT training and receive certification. To register for NERT training courses please visit
2. Once NERT certified, forward a copy of your NERT ID card to the ALERT program.
3. After clearing a basic background check the individual is eligible to register for ALERT training.

An informational meeting will be held on Dec. 5th at 7:00pm. The meeting will be held at the San Francisco Police Academy in the parking lot bungalow. This is not a mandatory meeting for interested volunteers. Come have your questions answered! 

The next ALERT training class has been scheduled for Jan. 18th, 2014, from 8:00am-5:00pm. This class will be held at the San Francisco Police Academy, in the parking lot bungalow.

Scam Alert:  Here is how it works: the suspect will call the victim and identify himself as a PG&E employee.  The suspect will ask for the victim by name and ask if he/she is the owner of a particular business or property.  Once the victim replies yes, the suspect tells the victim that his/her bill is delinquent in a specific amount.  The suspect then tells the victim that he/she needs to pay the delinquent bill by a certain time or their service will be terminated.  The suspect instructs the victim to buy MoneyPak cards in a specific amount.  The suspect then instructs the victim to read the card's code numbers to him over the phone.  Once that is done, the money is gone and the scam is complete.

The suspect will give the victim a call-back number that goes to a voicemail that identifies itself via recording as PG&E.

If you receive a call like this, please call the customer service number on your billing statement to confirm the call is legitimate.  If that call turns out to be a scam, please have a police report made.


9:18am       1700 Blk Dolores                             Vandalism/Resisting
A suspect with a lot on his mind was seen in the Noe Valley area vandalizing several parked vehicles. The suspect walked up to every parked vehicle along the 1700 block of Dolores Street and kicked the fenders and doors, leaving multiple dents on each car. Dispatched provided Officers Gallo and Baldovino with the suspect’s description and direction of travel. Moments later, the officers spotted the suspect and immediately detained him on the 3200 block of Mission Street. A witness approached the officers and pointed to the suspect and said, “That’s him”. The witness told them he had observed the suspect kicking the vehicles and decided to follow him from a distance while calling the police. Upon hearing the witness had pointed him out, the suspect immediately became irate and began yelling obscenities. The suspect even tried to walk away from the officers and the scene. Both Officers Gallo and Baldovino grabbed the suspect’s arms, but he began to fight. After a brief struggle the suspect was taken into custody. The owners of the damaged vehicles were contacted and given follow-up procedures. The suspect was eventually transported to Ingleside Station where he was booked for the vandalism and resisting. Report Number: 130979743

Serious Incidents:

12:40pm     900 Blk Ellsworth                            Drugs
The Alemany Housing Manager stopped Officers Hopkins and Uang on the 900 block of Alemany Boulevard and asked them to do a vacant unit check. She believed that someone was “Squatting” inside a unit that should normally be vacant. The officers pushed open the front door and immediately saw a subject in the living room area. The officers immediately recognized the subject from previous police contacts. The officers searched the subject and found a glass pipe, used to ingest various drugs, and a small baggie containing methamphetamine. The subject was arrested and charged with possession of drugs and paraphernalia. He was also told never to return to the vacant unit. Report Number: 130980320
