Crime Alert:  Two young men, a Caucasian 6 ft tall, dark brown hair 25-30 yrs old, the other a Latino man about 5’8", 25-30 yrs old are going door to door ringing doorbells and saying they are with The Child Fund. They insist on entering the homes to “do their presentation" and ask for $25 to $28. They present a badge that says CCPM.  If they come to your door do not let them in or give them money.  Call the police. 

A Message from the Public Utilities Commission:

“A Call to Conserve Water”

We didn’t get enough rain or snow this winter – plain and simple. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is officially asking all customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 10%.

Conservation is easy; turn off the faucet while brushing teeth or soaping hands; shorten shower time; install water-efficient showerheads and faucet aerators; replace older toilets and clothes washers with new water-efficient models; and, fix leaks.  Please visit for more information. The SFPUC offers an array of conservation assistance including free water-saving devices, free Water-Wise evaluations for homes, apartment buildings and businesses and rebates for water-efficient toilets and clothes washers.

Everyone needs to do their part to help us stretch our limited Hetch Hetchy Water Supplies. Conserve today and save for tomorrow.

                                            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.

A.L.E.R.T. volunteer:

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.

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.


11:38am     600 Blk Portola                      Attempted Vehicle Burglary
Unfortunately for a couple of felons, Ingleside Officer Campos was in the right place at the right time. Officer Campos was investigating a troubling series of recent car burglaries near the area of the 600 block of Portola Avenue. Campos was interviewing a store manager when one of the store’s employees approached them and said there was a suspicious man in the store’s parking lot. Campos, along with the store manager, went to the roof of the store and observed a man, while crouching down, trying to open several vehicles in the parking lot. After unsuccessfully trying to enter several cars, the suspect walked out of the parking lot and got into an older model Pontiac, without license plates and with two occupants, which quickly drove away. Officer Campos radioed the nearby Ingleside Officer Johnson, who responded and stopped the Pontiac a few blocks away on Teresita Blvd. A computer check of the driver showed she was unlicensed and her vehicle was uninsured. A check of the two occupants, including the one casing cars in the store parking lot, revealed a long list of arrests and convictions for burglary, possession of stolen property, grand theft, and other crimes. All three were arrested and transported to Ingleside Station. Report number: 140575472

7:58pm       100 Blk Britton                       Vandalism to Vehicle
A man sitting in his home was startled by a loud “banging sound” coming from outside. The homeowner went outside and found a large dent in the roof of his parked truck. He called police and Ingleside Officers Casey and Aylworth responded and talked to a neighbor who said he observed a young man jumping on the roof of the victim’s truck. The officers found the suspect a short distance away and cited him for the crime and released him from the scene. Report number: 140576997
