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.


4:02pm       Mission/Excelsior                    Drugs for Sale
One of the most important qualities of a police officer is a good memory. That quality helped Ingleside Sgt. Alvarez who, while traveling with her partner officer Quintero, spotted a parked vehicle belonging to a man she had arrested several times before and who was on probation with a search and seizure provision. The officers stopped their vehicle and approached the car which was occupied by a man and woman and not by the vehicle owner. The male passenger was also on probation and subject to police search and seizure. Officer Quintero searched the passenger and found nothing suspicious. Officer Alvarez’s search of the female passenger and had a more productive outcome. She found three baggies of methamphetamines hidden in the passenger’s clothing and a glass pipe used for smoking the narcotics. In a bag, in the back seat belonging to the woman passenger, Sgt. Alvarez discovered thirty one plastic baggies of methamphetamine destined for sale. Both suspects were taken to Ingleside Station and booked for methamphetamine for sale and for possession of narcotics paraphernalia. Report number: 140686295

Serious Incidents:

9:29pm       San Jose/Geneva                     Robbery
A man walking home on San Jose Avenue was robbed of his cell phone. The victim told Ingleside Officers Bautista and Peregrina that he heard someone say, “Hey, you dropped something!” When the victim turned around he saw the suspect approaching him and, when he got closer, pulled out a silver pocket knife. The suspect demanded the victim’s phone which the victim surrendered out of fear for his life. The suspect then fled south on San Jose Avenue toward Geneva. Report number: 140687328

9:30pm       Ocean/Phelan                           Robbery
The woman robbery victim knew it was serious when the suspect confronted her and said, while displaying a knife in his pocket, “We can do this the easy way or the hard way”. He had asked for her cell phone a short time earlier after she had exited the Balboa Park BART station and started walking westbound on Ocean Avenue. She declined his first request and ran into the middle of the street to escape his pursuit. But he followed and once she saw the knife, she surrendered her cell phone. Ingleside Officers Dominguez and Casey arrived a short time later and unsuccessfully searched the area for the suspect. They also gave the shaken and frightened woman a ride to her home in another part of the city. Report number: 140687306
