 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.


3:51am       Unit Blk Norton                       Auto Burglary
An alert citizen helped police nab two very busy car burglars. The citizen was awake and working at his computer when he heard a car alarm sound below his window. He looked out the window and saw two men with burglary tools walking away from the vehicle. The citizen dialed 911 and then went outside to follow the two suspects and relay their location to dispatch. The suspects traveled down Alemany Blvd. toward Ocean Avenue peering into vehicles with a flashlight and periodically smashing windows and removing contents all the while with the citizen following at a safe distance while talking to dispatch. The two suspects turned up Ocean Avenue and walked into the Bank of America parking lot where Ingleside Officers Siguido, Tindal, and Clemente were waiting to place them under arrest. A search of the suspects found several cell phones, camcorders, coins, and many other items removed from close to a half dozen neighborhood cars. The two suspects were taken to Ingleside Station and booked for burglary and possession of burglary tools. The officers spent the next several hours notifying car owners about the burglary and returning items taken from their vehicles. The alert citizen, who first notified police of the crime, also had surveillance video of the suspects breaking into that car below his apartment window. Report number: 140634799

Serious Incidents:

2:03am       4200 Blk Mission                    Carjacking
A motorist buying gas had his car stolen at gunpoint. The motorist told Ingleside Officers Dilag and Stewart that he stopped at the pumps and got out to pay the clerk for gas. However, as he approached the clerk’s window he realized he had left his wallet in his SUV. He turned around and as he returned to the SUV he noticed the vehicle start to pull away. He ran to the passenger door yelling for the driver to stop but the driver, pointing a pistol at him, just drove away. The vehicle owner had the SUV’s keys in his pocket and realized that the thief was able to steal the vehicle because it had a keyless ignition system that enabled a motorist to start and drive the car if the keys were in close vicinity. The loss, besides the vehicle, was four cell phones and currency. Report number: 140634658

7:46am       Lyell / Alemany                       Robbery

The thief then pulled her to the ground and before finally wrestling the purse from her grasp and running away in an unknown direction.
