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.

                                            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.

The officers approached the vehicle, woke up the driver, and immediately placed him in handcuffs. During a search of his clothing the officers found methamphetamine in one of his pockets. In a backpack belonging to the thief, the officers discovered several car burglary tools along with a pipe used to smoke methamphetamine.

11:30am     600 Blk Geneva                      Vehicle Burglary
Ingleside Officers Pubill and Jackson had stopped a motorist on the 700 block of Geneva for a vehicle code violation. The motorist said he was the victim of a theft and was trying to stop a thief who had just stolen his garage door opener from his car parked in front of his home on the 1200 Block of Cayuga Street. While talking to the motorist a second motorist stopped her car and said there was a large fight in progress a block away on the 600 block of Geneva. The woman motorist said that the fight involved her family members who were trying to hold a car burglar. Officers Pubill and Jackson immediately responded to the address and found several men holding a suspect whom the officers recognized from previous car burglary arrests. One victim told officers Pubill and Jackson that when he looked out his front window he spotted the car burglar inside a truck he owned parked in front of his home rifling through its contents. He alerted family members and together they went outside and grabbed and held the thief until Officer Pubill and Jackson arrived. The officers placed the suspect in custody and searched his pockets where they found a quantity of methamphetamine. They also found the garage remote stolen from the resident of Cayuga Street. The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked on several charges. Report number: 140663293

4:17pm       Unit Blk Cordova                   Drugs/Resisting Arrest
A group of seven officers (Barajas, Thompson, Quintero, Archilla, Yuen, Aylworth, Lockett, and Sgt. Alvarez) traveled to a home on the unit block of Cordova to serve a search warrant. While in front, and about to enter the residence, a Honda Civic drove up and parked near the residence about to be searched. Inside the vehicle were two occupants, one a resident of the home about to be searched, and another man with a long criminal history on active parole for narcotics convictions. The officers approached the vehicle and, after a brief struggle, placed the parolee under arrest. In his possession was a baggie containing methamphetamine and a significant amount of cash. The other occupant, a resident of the home about to be searched, was detained without incident. The officers entered the home and searched the premises, which was occupied by several members of one family, where they found a close to a pound of methamphetamine most of it packaged for sale. The vehicle passenger and one of the residents of the searched home were taken to Ingleside Station and booked for narcotics and parole violations. Report number: 140664172
