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.

7:35am       Visitacion/Schwerin                         Robbery w/gun
Ingleside Officers Nasser, Muro, Wong, Chang, and Sgt. Springer were sent to a home on the 100 block of Rey Street to investigate a robbery. The crying and shaken victim told the officers that she was about to enter her automobile, parked around the block from her home, when she noticed three men exiting a #8 MUNI bus. She said the three men approached her and one of the suspects said, “Give me your purse”. Before she could react, one of the men yanked the purse from her shoulder while throwing her to the sidewalk. The three suspects then ran away on Visitacion toward Britton Street. However, one the suspects ran only a few steps before turning around and shooting at the victim with a black BB gun. The victim tried to hide her face with her hands but the suspect ran up to her, pulled her hands away from her face, and shot her twice, once in each cheek with said BB gun. He then ran away in the same direction of the other suspects. The victim called police and then ran back to her home to wait for their arrival. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of her injuries which, according to the hospital physicians, were not life threatening. Ingleside officers searched the surrounding area for suspects but were not successful. The loss was a purse containing credit cards, cash, and a driver’s license.

Report number: 140650325

A woman riding a MUNI bus was the victim of a violent robbery. When Ingleside Officers Cuenca and Cvetovac arrived on scene the woman was shaking and crying and had abrasions on her hands and knees. The victim told the officers that when the #9 MUNI bus stopped at the intersection of Schwerin and Garrison, two suspects approached the victim sitting in her seat, and tried to take her purse out of her hands.

The suspects then ran away in an unknown direction. The victim was transported to Davis Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. The loss was several credit cards and a large amount of cash. The Ingleside Investigation Team has been assigned the case and is interviewing witnesses and looking at video from the MUNI bus and surrounding businesses. Report number: 140654678
