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.


6:45pm       Mansell/Colby                           Robbery
A robbery victim recovered his stolen cell phone thanks to the quick work of police and a cell phone equipped with tracking software. The victim told Ingleside Officers Nelson and Morse that he was walking eastbound on Mansell, looking at his cell phone, when four suspects walked up and confronted him. One of the suspects held his left arm and another held his right arm while the third suspect went through his pockets taking property including his cell phone. The victim said he recognized one of the suspects who played on his high school’s football team. After taking his property, the suspects got into a blue Camry that drove away eastbound on Mansell. The victim went home and called police while tracking his stolen phone. Officer Morse broadcast the location of the phone to other police units and soon, Bayview  Officers Polovina, Fry, and Faye spotted and stopped the Camry near the intersection of Looms and Oakdale Avenue. They detained the occupants until the victim arrived in another police vehicle and positively identified them as the suspects who stole his property. All four suspects were taken to Ingleside Station and booked for robbery and a parole violation for one of the suspects who had been convicted of a previous robbery. The victim’s cell phone and other property were found in the suspect’s car. Report number: 140680861
