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.


4:03pm       Mission/Bosworth         Warrants
A routine traffic stop resulted in the arrest of a wanted criminal.  Ingleside Officers Phillips and Hart were patrolling on Mission when they observed a late model Dodge Charger failing to stop for a pedestrian crossing Mission at College. The officers pulled the driver over who quickly admitted that his license was suspended. A computer query revealed that he was also on probation out of San Mateo County and had two outstanding felony warrants. The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station and booked on the warrants and vehicle code violations. Report number: 140539597

9:43pm       900 Blk Geneva            Narcotics
A group of four men, ducking in and out of doorways, caught the attention of Ingleside Officers Cabillo, Gonzalez, and Cunningham. The officers stopped the group and asked what they were doing. One of the men said they were waiting for the bus, despite the fact that they were walking away from the bus stop. When asked if any of them were on probation or parole, one of the men said he was on parole and a computer check confirmed that status. A record check of another male revealed he was also on parole with a search condition. The officers searched him and located a knife in his pocket, a BB gun, and a quantity of Methamphetamine. He was transported to Ingleside Station and booked for the narcotics, weapons, and warrants.  The narcotics was hand delivered to the drop box at the Hall of Justice.  Report number: 140541019

Serious Incidents:

9:55pm       San Jose/Monterey       Aggravated Assault
A fight broke out among several men riding on a “J” Church light rail vehicle that injured two victims. One of the victims told Ingleside Officers Gonzalez, Kerlegan, and Busalacchi that he was riding in the front of the street car when a fight began among several passengers in the back of the vehicle. The victim walked toward the back of the streetcar to break up the fight and was punched and kicked several times before being thrown off the streetcar. He suffered injuries to his face, legs, and elbows. The other victim said he was sitting in back of the streetcar when another passenger demanded his belt and gold necklace. When the victim refused to surrender his property, he was punched and kicked by the suspect and several other passengers. The suspects exited the streetcar and escaped by running westbound on Randall. The second victim said his cell phone was stolen during the melee. The first victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment. The second victim didn’t require emergency medical care. The victims were unsure if they could recognize the suspects.  The officers contacted Muni dispatch and requested a copy of the surveillance video.  Report number: 140540782
