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.

                                            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.


5:00pm       1500 Blk Sanchez                     Burglary
A stolen bicycle was recovered and the thief arrested thanks to an alert victim and plainclothes work by several Ingleside officers. It all started when the victim reported her bike stolen from her garage when she was away on vacation. She had registered the bike’s serial number with the police department. A few days later she discovered an ad for her stolen bicycle on “Craig’s List” with a price of $850. She notified police and a woman Ingleside officer called the thief and arranged to buy the bicycle at the Glen Park BART Station the next day. At the appointed hour the thief showed up with the bicycle and the plainclothes officer, after confirming it was the stolen bike, signaled to other officers and together the team arrested the man for grand theft. He was taken to jail and the bicycle was returned to the happy owner. Report number: 140641879
