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
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.


3:20am       4800 Blk Mission                    Vandalism
An on duty security guard working at an establishment along the 4700 block of Mission Street jumped into action when he witnessed a crime taking place down the street. Officers Hermosura and Contreras arrived after getting dispatched and spoke to the security guard, who said he witnessed two subjects spray painting the front of an establishment with graffiti. The guard ran down the street and confronted the two suspects making an on-the-spot decision to make a citizen’s arrest. The guard, being out numbered, was able to take one of the suspects into custody. The guard could only watch as the second suspect made his escape. The suspect was clear of any warrants and was cited out for the vandalism. Report Number: 140771385

3:00pm       800 Blk Cortland                    Resisting/Warrant Arrest
A local business owner was having problems with a certain individual who kept disrupting his business on a daily basis. On today’s date, the owner said he was behind the counter when this same individual came into the store to use the restroom. The owner denied his request because he was not a customer. The individual became upset and began yelling profanities at the owner and at all the customers inside. Still agitated the subject then went outside to the front of the store and began urinating on an outside table and chair. Quick to react, the business owner captured the incident on his cellular phone and then called the police. Officer Johnson and Suguitan responded and located the individual across the street. They noticed that he was very intoxicated. A computer check revealed three outstanding warrants for his arrest. He was taken to Ingleside to be booked in, but when they arrived he decided to fight with the officers. After a short struggle the officers were able to get the upper hand and finally booked him in. Report Number: 140772606
