Incident Date:
Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on November 19, 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.

Reminder:  With Daylight Savings in effect as of Nov. 3rd.  The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has introduced a useful way to report broken/flickering streetlights. If you happen to be walking along and come across a broken or burned out streetlight, use the new app or call “311” to report it.  Keeping the streets lit a night, especially now that it’s getting darker a lot sooner, can increase visibility and help to reduce crime. The following information below will make it easier for you to report faulty streetlights:

Phone it in: City’s new “StreetLightsSF” phone app

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission unveiled a new Smartphone application that allows cell phone users to report burned out and broken street lights anywhere in San Francisco from the convenience of their own phone. The new application, called StreetLightsSF, lets the user pinpoint the locations of faulty streetlights by “dragging-and-dropping” a locating pin on a map and send the information to 311. The app also allows the user to track the status of repair efforts; and streamlines the process for reporting malfunctioning streetlights to the agency that is responsible for their repair and maintenance (the majority of non-City-owned street lights are owned, maintained, and operated by PG&E). The StreetLightsSF application is compatible with iOS and Android smart phones and can be downloaded from the Apple and Android stores and also at (go to “Customer Service” and then select “Report a Problem”).
