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.


6:36pm       2500 Blk Alemany                  Auto Burglary
Ingleside Officers Barajas and Padilla were on routine patrol near Ottawa and Alemany Streets when they were flagged down by a man claiming that a thief was breaking into a blue van parked nearby. The citizen identified a man walking north on Alemany as the thief. The officers stopped the suspect and placed him under arrest. Parked nearby was the van with a window broken and the sliding door ajar. The owner told the officers that the only thing missing was a bottle of air freshener from the glove box. A computer check revealed that the suspect was on active parole for domestic violence and had an outstanding warrant for parole violation. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for auto burglary and the parole violation. Report number: 140693240

One of the suspects brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and another one displayed a knife.

The struggle continued for a short time until the suspect punched the victim several times in her face with his fist. The blows knocked the victim backwards into a metal fence at which time the suspect escaped with the purse and the woman’s cell phone.
