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 sfwater.org/conservation 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.

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 www.sfgov.org/sfnert
2. Once NERT certified, forward a copy of your NERT ID card to the ALERT program. sfpdalert@sfov.org
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.


 9:25pm      Cayuga/Lamartine       Robbery
Quick work by a team of Ingleside officers led to an arrest of armed robbery suspect. It all began when a man, walking through a Mini Park near Cayuga and Alemany, confronted five park goers and, after displaying a pistol, demanded their valuables. Fearing for their lives, the five victims relinquished cell phones, wallets, and other valuables. The suspect quickly escaped while the victims called police. Ingleside Officers Aylworth, Canning, Hauscarriague, Austin, and several other units responded to the area. Soon, Officers Canning and Cabillo radioed they were in foot pursuit of the suspect who had run into a backyard on the 100 block of Congdon. The officers organized an arrest team and began searching for the suspect, eventually finding him hiding in a backyard behind a home on the 200 block of Trumbull. He was placed in custody and, after being identified by the robbery victims, transported to the County Jail and charged with armed robbery. Report number: 140531004

Serious Incidents:

10:36pm     400 Blk Los Palmos      Attempted Assault
A woman walked into Ingleside Station and said her landlord tried to assault her. The victim said the landlord complained that sand in her clothes was clogging the shared washing machine. The woman said the landlord took out a roll of duct tape to wipe the interior of the machine tub and, instead of wiping the tub, tried to put the tape over the victim’s mouth. She resisted his attempt and told Police Services Aide Cato that the landlord routinely harasses and abuses other tenants in the home. She was advised to get a civil restraining order against the landlord. Report number: 140529902
