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:
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.

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.

Ingleside Officers Cabillo and Canning were on routine patrol when they spotted a man urinating into some bushes near a store. The officers stopped their vehicle and detained the suspect who was on probation and had a search and seizure provision. The officers cited the suspect for urinating in public and searched his clothing but found nothing. The officers then went to search his vehicle which was parked in the store’s parking lot. There, Cabillo and Canning found two occupants, one of whom had several warrants for his arrest from the Daly City Police Department. He was placed in custody and taken to Ingleside Station for booking. The third passenger was released at the scene without any charges. Report number: 140585114

Serious Incidents:

A woman leaving for work noticed a lock on a downstairs door was damaged. She called her father who assured her that he locked the door the night before and the lock, at that time, was undamaged. She then called police and Ingleside Officers Chang, Baldovino, Adams, Wong, and Lim responded. The victim told police that she was woken by a loud banging sound earlier that morning but wasn’t alarmed because she thought it was her father working downstairs. The officers, along with the victim, inspected the downstairs rooms and found that laptop computer was stolen and a closet had been ransacked. The burglar had entered the home through a downstairs door. CSI later responded to look for evidence. Report number: 140583522
