        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 (https://www.gofundme.com/sfpdtoydrive2016) 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:  www.sanfranciscopolice.org/safeshopper

7:00pm       Harvard & Burrows                 Stolen Vehicle
Two officers on routine patrol spotted a pickup truck double parked next to a parked older Honda on Burrows Street. Ingleside Officers Carew and Jensen, like all police officers, know that older Hondas are one of the favorite vehicles of car thieves. The officers pulled up behind the truck, which quickly drove away. Before the officers could exit their patrol vehicle, the Honda started up and sped away at a high rate of speed eastbound on Burrows. The officers turned on their emergency lights and siren, but the Honda driver failed to yield. Fearing for the public’s safety, the officers terminated their pursuit. Less than an hour later the officers again spotted the Honda parked on the 700 block of Barneveld Street. A woman standing near the Honda, seeing the officers, started walking away. The officers yelled “stop” and she did. In one of her pockets were several shaved keys used to steal vehicles, especially older Hondas. A computer check revealed the woman was previously convicted of vehicle theft. She was arrested for vehicle theft and the Honda, which was stolen from a nearby San Francisco address, was returned to its owner. Report number: 160992715
