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.

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
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.


2:42pm       300 Blk Coleridge                  Grand Theft Auto
A man, wearing coveralls, running down the street with a wrench in his hand is bound to get the attention of police. In this instance, it was Ingleside Officers Deering and Johnson who spotted the midday runner near the intersection of Kingston and Mission Streets. The officers followed the man and watched as he ran into Mission Street traffic and tried to flag down a work truck driving northbound on Mission. The driver of the truck didn’t stop but the driver of a black car behind the truck did. The runner got into the black car which started following the truck. Officers Deering and Johnson turned on their emergency lights and stopped the car to question the runner. He told the officers that the truck he was trying to stop was his and it was stolen a short time ago from his construction worksite only a few blocks away. The officers called for backup to stay with the victim and then started pursuing the truck with the thief at the wheel. They soon caught up to the suspect at Elsie and Holly Park Circle where the thief briefly pulled over before driving away at high speed. Officers Deering and Johnson began pursuing while radioing for assistance. The pursuit turned dangerous as the thief drove through stop signs without slowing down. Because it was the end of the school day with hundreds of students on their way home in the neighborhood, the officers stopped their pursuit not wanting to put the public in unnecessary danger. However, their caution didn’t mean they gave up looking for the suspect. A short time later the officers spotted the stolen truck parked in a handicapped zone at the entrance to St. Mary’s Park. There was no one inside. But a man walking his dog with his young son saw the officers and pointed to the tennis courts and said, “The guy with the truck ran that way!” Just then, Ingleside Officer Duncan spotted the suspect running down a nearby hill. Officer Duncan drew his weapon and ordered the suspect to stop, which he did. He was placed in handcuffs and later positively identified as the thief by the contractor truck owner. That victim told officers that he had parked his truck near the worksite with the doors locked and the driver’s window open and the keys in the ignition. He was at the worksite only a few minutes when he saw the driver’s door close and the suspect in the vehicle starting it and driving away. The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for grand theft, evading police, and resisting arrest. Report number: 140676371

3:28pm       4800 Blk of Mission               Parole Violation
An employee of a business called police after a customer threatened him with gun. Ingleside Officers Padilla and Siracusa responded. The clerk told the officers that earlier that day a customer approached a cashier’s booth and asked for money to play video games. The employee told the customer he had to use his own money for the games. The customer left but then returned a few minutes later and walked up to the employee, lifted up his shirt, showing a black semi-automatic handgun. He then left and the employee called police. A short time later, Ingleside Sgt. Duffin stopped the suspect a few blocks away. He was unarmed but he did have a glass tube, commonly called a “Pipe”, which is used to smoke narcotics, in one of his pockets. A computer check revealed he was on parole and was in violation of his sentence. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for the narcotics violation as well as the parole violation. Report number: 140676478

11:06pm     3300 Blk Mission                   Robbery
A customer walked in to pick up a late night snack without paying for it. The thief was spotted leaving the establishment with a bottle of Jagermeister and a bag of Doritos. A store employee chased the suspect while calling police. When the suspect spotted the employee he stopped, turned around, and punched the employee once in the chest and twice in the face. The suspect then turned around and walked away with the employee now following a safe distance. Soon thereafter, Ingleside Sgt. Riskin spotted the pursued and pursuer and stopped the suspect at Brook and San Jose Avenue. He was placed under arrest, taken to Ingleside Station, and booked for robbery and battery.
