The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together. The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  NERT also offers continuing training for graduates and activities that support building robust neighborhood teams.  For more information, visit the NERT website at, or contact Lt.

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.


6:02pm       30th/Mission                  Robbery
Two alert citizens helped police capture and arrest a cell phone thief. The incident started on a #14Muni bus traveling south on Mission Street stopped at 30th street. A young man grabbed the cell phone out of the hand of a woman passenger and quickly exited the bus. Another passenger, seeing the theft, got off the bus and chased the robber as he ran westbound on 30th street. At the same time, a bike rider, witnessing the chase and hearing the victim yell, “stop him, stop him, he stole my stuff”, also began chasing the suspect. Meanwhile, Ingleside Officers Thompson and Deering, who were on routine patrol, heard dispatch broadcast the report of the robbery while they were driving only two blocks away. They responded to 30th and Dolores where the first witness pointed out the robber and gave the officers the stolen cell phone which was dropped during the escape. The suspect was handcuffed and transported to Ingleside Station where the victim positively identified him as the young man who stole her phone. He was eventually booked for robbery. Report number: 140757379

9:28pm       100 Blk Avalon             Burglary/Possession of Stolen Property
Four alert neighbors, all family members of a nearby residence, were quick to call the police after they observed a suspicious subject taking items from a parked car, then entering and exiting a residential garage that the neighbors knew he didn’t live in. As the suspect was making his get-a-way, with several bags in hand, one of the family members chased him down and took a photograph using his cell phone. Once Officer Cabillo arrived they showed him the picture. Officer Cabillo and the witnesses jumped into his patrol car and went searching for the suspect along Mission Street. The witnesses spotted the suspect and pointed him out. Officer Cabillo stopped and quickly took the suspect into custody. Officers Casey and Bernal arrived as well and located the owner of the vehicle, who also happened to be the owner of the house with the open garage. The owner told the officers that most of the items that were in the bags were taken from his car and home. The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for burglary of a residence, burglary of a vehicle and possession of stolen property. Report Number: 140757943

9:42pm       Diamond/Bosworth       Drugs
Ingleside Officers Alday and Hauscarriague were on routine patrol when they spotted a man walking northbound on Diamond Street, near Bosworth, with an open can of beer. They stopped the man and ran a computer check which showed the suspect was on felony probation with a search condition for felony assault. A search of his pockets turned up several prescription narcotics. He was taken to the Hall of Justice and booked for possession of narcotics, probation violation, and consuming an open alcoholic beverage in public. Report number: 140757909

Serious Incidents:

9:45pm       Geneva/Esquina           Attempted Robbery
A man walking his dog was attacked by three would be robbers. The victim told Ingleside Officers Austin and Canning that when his dog stopped to relieve itself, three men suddenly approached and started punching him in the face and body. One of the men yelled, “Give me your F…bag” during the assault. The victim yelled back, “F….you. You’re not getting my bag”, while curled up in the fetal position on the sidewalk during the assault. One of the suspects then picked up a metal pole and struck the victim several times but he refused to relinquish control of his shoulder bag. Finally the suspects ran away and the man called police.
