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.

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.


3:10 am      4700 Blk Mission                    Battery
Ingleside Officers Anderson and Bautista were on routine patrol when they were flagged down by a restaurant security guard. The guard had a suspect in handcuffs detained at the corner of Mission and Onondaga. According to the guard, the male suspect tried to enter the women’s bathroom. He gave no reason other than his two female friends had gone into the bathroom a short time before. When the guard tried to stop him, the suspect punched the guard in the chest which prompted the guard to pepper spray the suspect and placed him in custody.  The guard signed a citizen’s arrest form and the suspect was cited for the battery and released at the scene. Report number: 140580722

A man walking home from the bus stop was robbed of his cell phone and wallet.
