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.

Heat wave:  Many residents are leaving their windows and doors open in an effort to keep cooler as the temperature increases during these gorgeous sunny days. Be extra careful, especially when you leave your home, paying attention to secure the windows and doors when you leave. Burglars are always looking for the easiest way inside your home. Don’t give them the opportunity for the easy access. Make sure to secure these entry points and leave them locked when you are not around. A third of all the burglaries committed in the Ingleside district during the month of April were due to open garages and unlocked or open windows. Also, remember to keep hydrated with lots of water!!

Muni Related Thefts/Robberies: Commuters who take public transportation have been targeted by cell phone thieves. In the last couple weeks there has been two incidents involving MUNI related thefts and robberies here in the Ingleside District. In one of the cases, witnesses told the officers at the scene that the suspect was watching the victim as she focused only on her smart phone, paying no attention to her surroundings. When the bus stopped, the suspect snatched the phone from her hand and ran off the bus. If you’re not paying attention to your surroundings, you’re wearing a target on your back. Smart phone owners need to be aware that thieves may be watching you and ready to snatch your devices. The following is some common advice to avoid becoming a victim: Always be aware of your surroundings. If the bus is going to stop, stop what you are doing, look up, look around and put your phone down or put it in your pocket. And when the bus is in movement again you can go back to looking at it.

Serious Incidents:

3:45pm       Unit Blk Chenery          Hot Prowl Burglary
A woman, after opening the front window of her apartment “about an inch”, went back to her kitchen. She told Ingleside Officers Chew and Lustenberger that a short time later she heard someone opening the window and turned around and saw an unknown man standing in her living room. The victim yelled at the man, “What are you doing?” He replied, “Oh, I’m sorry. I thought I was at my friend’s house”. The victim told the suspect to “get out” and he left through the window. She told officers Chew and Lustenberger that she watched as the man ran away southbound on Chenery.  The victim was not injured and believes she could identify the man.  The officers searched the area for the suspect to no avail.  Report number: 140472191

9:08pm       4100 Blk Mission          Robbery
Three men entered a business and robbed the employees and customers at gunpoint. The victims told Ingleside Officers Aylworth, Snadow, Chew, and Chou that the suspects burst into the store brandishing weapons with one of them yelling, “Give me all that you got”. All wore ski masks and gloves and they took cash, credit cards, and wallets from three customers and removed business equipment as well as personal property belonging to the business owners and two of its employees.  The victims were not injured and did not get a good look at the suspects.  Officers searched the area unsuccessfully for the suspects.  Report number: 140472969

9:50pm       700 Blk Morse              Robbery
A man walking to his car was robbed of his belongings. The victim told Ingleside officers Lozano and Anderson that while walking toward his car he noticed a man walking toward him. As they crossed paths, the man asked the victim for a dollar. When the victim said he didn’t have any cash, the suspect punched the victim in the nose and said, “You have some money”. Then the suspect grabbed the victim’s right arm and pushed him to the ground where he continued the assault by kicking him several times in the back of his neck. The suspect then kneeled down and took the victim’s wallet from his back pocket before running away. The loss was a small amount of cash, a debit card, and identification.  The victim was unsure if he could recognize the suspect.  Report number: 140472997
