        SFPD and Walgreens Kick Off 2016 Holiday Toy Drive

In collaboration with Walgreens drugstores, the San Francisco Police Department today launched its 2016 Holiday Toy Drive, benefitting the City’s children in need.

From November 18 to December 19, SFPD will be accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys at more than 60 San Francisco Walgreens locations. The goal is to exceed last year’s toy drive, in which approximately 2,500 items were donated at 30 Walgreens stores for distribution to San Francisco children.

“Everyone can make a difference in a child’s life,” said Interim Police Chief Toney Chaplin. “San Franciscans are generous, thoughtful people and we believe they will step up to brighten the holidays for children and provide happy memories for years to come. We thank Walgreens for doing their part again this year to help San Francisco youth.”

Donors can purchase or drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any San Francisco Walgreens that features a brightly colored and marked toy drive collection bin. Those unable to drop off a toy may also contribute to a Go Fund Me account ( established by the San Francisco Police Foundation to purchase toys for underprivileged children this holiday season.

             Safe Shopper 2016 - Holiday Season Safety Tips

During this holiday season, the San Francisco Police Department will be working to enhance safety for residents, visitors and shoppers. There will be increased foot patrols in shopping areas throughout the city, including the horse/mounted unit, plainclothes officers and traffic enforcement.

“The San Francisco Police Department wishes everyone a happy holiday season,” said Interim Chief Toney Chaplin. “We also want this season of giving to be memorable and safe for you and your loved ones. Here are some tips that will help keep you safe.”

• Stay alert when using electronic devices. Limit your distractions.
• Always be alert to your surroundings and have your keys in your hand as you approach your vehicle.
• Park Smart: Help avoid vehicle break-ins, leave nothing visible in your car. Consider moving your vehicle to a different location each time you load packages in the trunk. Try to use parking lots where there are parking attendants.
• Keep your wallet in a hard-to-reach place and carry only the cash and credit cards that you will need to complete your shopping.
• If someone demands your purse, wallet, or packages, surrender them, make note of the suspect’s description and direction they flee and call 911. Property can be replaced.
• If you see something, say something. If you witness criminal activity or see something or someone suspicious, flag down a police officer, call 911 or contact security.
• Shop with a companion, especially after dark, whenever possible.

Please report criminal activity to police immediately. Additional personal safety tips are available:

12:07am     Allison & Mission                 Stolen Vehicle
An older Jeep Cherokee with paper plates caught the attention of Ingleside Officers Scott and Hardy. It was leaving a parking spot in the 5400 block of Mission when Hardy and Scott first saw the Jeep. The officers followed the Jeep as it went through the McDonalds parking lot and continued northbound on Mission until the officers finally stopped the vehicle at Mission and Allison. The driver stated the Jeep belonged to his “boss” and he didn’t have any registration documents. He identified himself and said he was on probation. A computer check revealed the Jeep was reported stolen out of Pacifica over a week ago. That same computer check revealed that the driver was on felony probation for auto theft out of San Francisco. Inside the jeep, the officers found a gray backpack, 12 vehicle ignition keys, a bicycle, and a bag containing 20 pounds of marijuana. The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked auto theft. The vehicle was towed to impound and its contents placed in the evidence locker. Report number: 160975498

8:54am       4700 Blk Mission                    D.U.I Drugs
Ingleside Station Officers Langley, Trujillo, Champlin, Chang, and Sgt. Springer were dispatched to an address where a witness said a man was unresponsive inside a vehicle that was stopped with the engine running. The vehicle was blocking the entrance way to several businesses. The officers arrived and knocked loudly on the windows, but there was no response from the driver. They then broke one of the windows to gain entrance and turn off the ignition and apply the parking brakes. The driver was removed from the car and asked to perform field sobriety tests. But he refused. The officers did not notice any indications that the driver was compromised from alcohol but suspected it may be a narcotic. They did not notice any medical identification bracelets or cards indicating a medical condition. A judge was contacted and he issued a warrant for a blood test of the suspect, which was conducted at San Francisco General Hospital. Report number: 160976010

10:22pm     100 Blk Rey                           Stolen Vehicle
A known felon was spotted standing near some friends who were next to an older Honda parked on the sidewalk. That was enough to prompt Ingleside Officers Barajas, Lustenberger, Wells, and George to stop their patrol car and talk to the man. When the officers approached the suspect he quickly ran to the opposite side of the vehicle and tried to hide a package of methamphetamine. He was placed in custody and the narcotic was kept for evidence. The Honda turned out to be stolen and inside where many “shaved keys” used to break into and steal vehicles. The suspect was placed in custody and transported to Ingleside Station for booking. The stolen Honda was returned to its owner. Report number: 160978050

10:58pm     3600 Blk Mission                   Battery of a Police Officer
A police officer lost a tooth and sustained damage to one of his eyes after responding to a fight between siblings. Ingleside Officers Mendiola, Labson, Trumpp, Garza, and Narsaiya were dispatched to an address on Mission to investigate a report of a brother striking his sister. When they arrived they found the sister standing in front of the residence with a red scratch on the right side of her face. She said her brother had hit her. The officers went into the residence and found the brother and the mother. The brother seeing the officers, went into his room. Officers Mendiola, Trumpp, Narsaiya, went to the suspect’s room to talk to him. But instead of talking he became combative telling the officers to “get out of his way”. The officers repeatedly told him to “calm down”, but instead, he attacked Officer Mendiola punching him the face breaking one of his teeth and bruising the area around his right eye. The officers were able to subdue the suspect and place him in custody. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for mental health evaluation. Officer Mendiola was also transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. Report number: 160978210

Serious Incidents:

8:00am       Unit Blk. Persia                       Robbery
A 15year old student, on his way to school, was approached by two robbers who wanted his property. The victim told Ingleside Officers Shih and Dito that he was waiting at the bus stop when two young men approached him and demanded his backpack. The victim ran across the street into a bakery to escape the robbers, but they followed. Inside the bakery the student gave his backpack to a friend who quickly ran away to escape the robbers. However, the suspects, even if they couldn’t get his backpack, wanted something of value. So, they took the victim’s expensive watch before escaping. The victim called police. Later that morning, the victim received a call from a staff member at June Jordan High School saying they had recovered his watch. It was returned to him that day. Report number: 160980306
