                          DUI Saturation Patrols This Friday

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrols on Friday, December 30, 2016 between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment by checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out. Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the San Francisco Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call ‘9-1-1’.


2:24pm       5400 Blk. Mission                     Resisting Arrest
Ingleside Officers Archilla, Fillamor, and Malatesta were on routine patrol when they spotted a man on parole with a search condition. He was inside a business where numerous arrests for various serious crimes had occurred before. When asked for identification, the suspect gave the officers a false name. When asked to step outside he refused and became combative. He was finally subdued and placed in handcuffs. Inside his pockets was a pipe used to smoke methamphetamine. He was transported to Ingleside station where he was cited for resisting arrest, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, and giving a false name to a police officer. Report number: 161038532

7:26pm       Mansell & Visitacion                Warrant Arrest
Ingleside Officers Dungca, Quinlan, and Coss were patrolling near Crocker-Amazon Park when they spotted a red Nissan Altima driving northbound on Moscow Street. Officer Coss remembered there was a bulletin from Burlingame PD about red Nissan Altima possibly involved in a homicide. A computer check revealed that this was that Nissan Altima. The officers radioed for backup and, with the help of several other units, stopped the Altima at Mansell and Visitacion. The vehicle’s three occupants were placed in custody. Burlingame police were notified and one of their investigators traveled to Ingleside Station to interview the occupants of the vehicle. Inside the Nissan the officers found cash, a significant amount of marijuana along with baggies and a scale to package the substance for sale. They also found cocaine and a Confederate flag bandana inside the driver’s door that contained more items used in the sale of narcotics. Report number: 161039449
