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.


4:41pm       400 Blk Edinburgh                  Weapon/Resisting Arrest
Most police officers will tell you that domestic calls can be very dangerous. That rule of patrol turned out to be true on this afternoon. Ingleside Officer Austin was dispatched to investigate a violation of a restraining order. When he arrived on scene he found the woman subject of the restraining order standing in the front yard of a home occupied by another woman who filed the restraining order. Officer Austin approached the suspect and asked for her name. She spelled her name and then yelled an epithet at the officer while tensing her hands into fists. The officer also noticed two possible weapons in the dirt next to the subject, a kitchen knife and a pair of scissors. The patrolman decided to place the woman in handcuffs but that proved to be a task that could have cost him his life. The woman suspect refused to comply with his orders to place her hands behind her back. Instead, she drove her body into Officer Austin’s left leg and both fell to the ground. While on the ground the suspect violently flailed her arms while avoiding being handcuffed. Then, while Officer Austin struggled for control, she reached around and grabbed the officer’s ammunition case and handcuffs. The officer grabbed her hand to prevent her gaining control of those items. Then the suspect grabbed the officer’s weapon and tried to pull it from its holster. Again, Officer Austin grabbed her hand and prevented the suspect from taking his firearm. But the suspect wasn’t through trying to harm the officer. She, next, reached around and tried to grab the scissors lying next to her on the ground. But Officer Austin still had enough control of her wrists to prevent that from happening. Just then Ingleside Officers Paras and Nguyen arrived and helped Austin place the suspect under control. She was taken to Ingleside Station and then to the county jail and booked on attempting to take a weapon from a peace officer, violating a restraining order, and forcibly resisting arrest. Report number: 140696028

5:24pm       2100 Blk Geneva                       Firearm
Ingleside Officers Padilla, Barajas, and Sgt. Alvarez were on routine patrol when they noticed a car parked in a store parking lot being driven by a man, on active parole, with a search condition. Besides the driver, there were five passengers in the vehicle. The officers pulled into the store parking lot, approached the vehicle, and asked the driver for his operator’s permit. The driver didn’t have a license and instead showed the officers a California identification card. A record check revealed the driver had two outstanding warrants for his arrest out of San Francisco. He was removed from the car and placed in handcuffs. The officers asked each of the passengers to exit the vehicle one-by-one to be searched. Four of them did not possess weapons or any illegal substances and they were released at the scene. But one suspect had a loaded firearm in one of his pockets and he was placed under arrest. A records check revealed that he had two prior arrests out of Concord for possession of a firearm in a public place. He was eventually transported and booked for the illegal possession of a firearm. Report number: 140696103
