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.


3:00pm       200 Blk Judson                               Battery
Officer Thompson responded to a battery call on the 200 block of  Judson Avenue. When he arrived at the scene, he saw a female sitting on the front porch just outside of the house. She told Officer Thompson that she had confronted her roommate and told her that she needed to move. Her roommate, in turn, yelled a bunch of profanities and pushed the victim as she was walking out of the room. A physical altercation ensued between both roommates. After the fight the suspect poured Pine Sol on the victim, possibly knowing that she could have an allergic respiratory reaction.  Officer Thompson talked to the suspect who stated she was only defending herself and that a male friend had to step in to break up the fight. Ultimately, both roommates were cited for the battery against each other with a pending court date. Report Number: 140591252

Serious Incidents:

6:20pm       Visitacion/Schwerin                         Robbery
Officer Elliston and Officer Conway responded to the 100 block of Garrison Avenue regarding a robbery that occurred. When they got to the scene, the male victim had bandages on his face and hands and told the officers that he had been hit on the back of his head, which caused him to fall to the ground, hitting his face. He wasn’t sure if he lost consciousness during the robbery. Officer Elliston immediately requested medics to the scene. The victim said that he was walking home from the library and as he was getting close to the intersection of Visitacion Avenue and Schwerin Street, an unknown suspect came up to him from behind and hit him. The suspect tried grabbing his phone from his front pocket and the victim squatted down and wrapped is hands around his waist protecting his phone. He said that he saw another suspect join in and ended up hitting him on the head as well. He got up and saw both of them running eastbound on Visitacion Avenue. Officer Elliston attempted to track the victim’s phone but was met with negative results. Report Number: 140591848
