The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on November 18, 2014 at 7p.m.  Thank you.

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 http://sfgov.org//sffdnert, or contact Lt. Erica Arteseros at (415)970-2022 or sffdnert@sfgov.org

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 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.


4:54am       100 Blk Kingston                    Stolen Auto
Eagle eyed Ingleside Officer Hauscarriague was on routine patrol when he spotted a 14 year old Honda parked mid-block on Mission between Cortland and Kingston. Older Hondas are prime prospects for theft because their ignition locks are easy to defeat. That was the case with this Honda which had been reported stolen by its owner who lives in the Western Addition. Officer Hauscarriague drove past the unoccupied Honda and spotted a man walking toward the vehicle. Hauscarriague kept driving to the next intersection and made a u-turn and drove back to where the Honda was parked but it wasn’t there. He kept driving and found it parked a short distance away on Kingston Street. The driver, the man Hauscarriague first saw a short time earlier, had pulled the driver’s seat horizontal trying to hide from Hauscarriague’s view. But, again, the eagle eyed Hauscarriague easily spotted the car thief and placed him under arrest. The suspect told the officer that he was only in the stolen car to “Charge his cell phone”. But the house key he used to start the Honda belied that excuse. A computer check showed he was also wanted on a misdemeanor warrant from Mountain View for false impersonation. The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station and booked for car theft and the outstanding warrant. Report number: 140907869

11:48am     30th/San Jose                          Stolen Auto
Approximately 7 hours later than the above incident, Ingleside Officer Archilla spotted another stolen vehicle, a 1993 Nissan Sentra, parked near the same intersection the previous car thief was arrested. Officer Archilla parked his patrol car and watched for a short time until a man exited a nearby business and entered the stolen Sentra and started driving away eastbound on Eugenia Street. Officer Archilla pulled up behind the Sentra and turned on his emergency lights and siren. The car thief ignored Archilla and began driving away at a high rate of speed throughout the neighborhood. Officer Archilla radioed for backup and continued following the stolen vehicle as he ignored Officer Archilla’s command to stop. When the chase reached 30th and San Jose, the thief jumped out of the stolen car and began running away with officer Archilla in foot pursuit. Fortunately, the chase was short as Archilla was able to tackle the car thief and place him under arrest. Numerous Ingleside units arrived to assist Officer Archilla and the thief was transported back to Ingleside Station for booking on several charges including vehicle theft, evading an officer, possession of burglary tools, and driving with a suspended license. Report number: 140910743

Serious Incidents:

12:50am     4500 Blk Mission                   Robbery
Ingleside Officer Kelly was dispatched to a report of a robbery where the victim suffered injuries. When he arrived on scene, the victim was being treated by emergency medical personnel for cuts and lacerations on his head and mouth. He told Officer Kelly that a short while before he was walking past a bar when two men exited and confronted him. The suspects asked him what gang he was from and when the victim said he wasn’t in a gang, they punched and kicked him and then reached in his pocket and removed his wallet. The loss was a cell phone, cash, and miscellaneous cards. Report number: 140914836

11:25am     700 Blk  Rutland                    Robbery
A young man walking home was brutally attacked and robbed of his belongings. The victim told Ingleside Officers Siricusa and Hornstein that he was walking north bound on Rutland when a man approached from behind and asked, “Where you from”. That’s the last thing he remembers before waking up with two passersby standing over him. The witnesses told Siricusa and Hornstein that they were driving down Rutland when they saw two men standing over the victim and assaulting him. The officers summoned medical personnel who treated the victim for lacerations and transported him to Kaiser Hospital for evaluation. The robbers took a backpack containing school books, a cell phone, driver’s license and miscellaneous items. A short time later a neighbor approached the officers with the victim’s wallet which was found in the neighbor’s driveway. Everything stolen was recovered except for the cell phone. Report number: 140915890

3:25pm       200 Blk Monterey                  Hot Prowl Burglary
A woman in her backyard was startled to look through the window of her apartment and see a man holding her IPad. She screamed, “What are you doing in there”?  The suspect replied, “Whoa”, and then escaped by jumping out her bedroom window and then running away. Ingleside Officers Siricusa and Chew searched the area for the suspect but didn’t find him. They determined that the suspect gained entry to the home by cutting the screen on the bedroom window. The loss was and IPad and IPhone. The victim was unable to use her “find my IPhone” app to locate her stolen property. Report number: 140916569

10:12pm     Mission/Excelsior                   Attempted Robbery
A couple was assaulted while parking their car. The male victim told police that he was standing on the sidewalk while his girlfriend was pulling into a parking space when two unknown suspects came up from behind and started punching him in the face. The assault continued until the victim was able to escape and run into a nearby business. He told Ingleside Officers Hornstein and Connell that none of his property was taken.
