Keeping the streets lit a night, especially with daylight savings ending soon, 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”).

12:16am     1500 Blk Geneva                          Firearm
Ingleside Officers Seavey, Barajas, and Padilla were on duty and traveling in an unmarked police cruiser on Halloween when a speeding Mitsubishi sedan on Mission Street, carrying three occupants, caught their attention. The officers began following the sedan as it traveled southbound on Mission near Excelsior and noticed that one of its brake lights was inoperable. When a marked police car, traveling in the opposite direction approached, the speeding Mitsubishi quickly slowed down and then picked up speed when the police car passed. The suspicious vehicle continued from Mission, to eastbound Amazon, then to southbound Moscow, and finally onto Geneva, where it quickly pulled into a driveway on the 1500 block. The three patrolmen stopped behind the parked car and exited their police vehicle identifying themselves as police officers. They asked the three occupants to show their hands, but they didn’t, and looked nervous. A second request was successful, and all three occupants put their hands in plain view. Officer Padilla asked the driver for his operator’s license and the driver said he didn’t have one. Officer Padilla then asked if he had any form of identification and the driver didn’t answer. After noticing the pungent smell of marijuana, the officer asked if any of the occupants had a medical marijuana card. No one answered. Officer Padilla noticed the driver kept shifting his hands from his lap to his sides. He was told to stop. The passenger was also shifting his hands around the front seat of the car. Officers Padilla and Seavey ordered both the driver and the passenger to exit the car and place their hands on their heads. A pat search of the driver turned up a .25 caliber semi-automatic handgun, wrapped in a sock, in his right front pocket. When the front seat passenger exited the car a .38 caliber revolver fell to the ground from his lap. The third occupant exited the car without incident. A computer query showed that both the driver and the front seat passenger had extensive criminal history with convictions for serious felonies. Both had warrants out of San Francisco. They were transported to the county jail for booking on weapons and other charges. The third occupant was eventually released. Case number: 130923245

10:06pm     Unit Blk Genebern                       Unlawful Habitation
Several neighbors called police to complain about someone living in a vehicle parked on a residential street. When Officers Jones and Willkom arrived, they found the male occupant asleep in the back seat in a vehicle full of personal and household items. When asked what he was doing, the occupant said “reading the paper”, which the officers noted was difficult because the vehicle’s interior lights were inoperable. The occupant was cited for living in a vehicle in a residential neighborhood between the hours of 10pm and 6am. After being given the citation, he locked up his car and left on foot. Case number: 130925990
