        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:

3:34pm       Bosworth & Chilton                        D.U.I
Ingleside Officers Mora, Marshall, Naser, and Rissetto were dispatched to an accident involving two vehicles traveling eastbound on Bosworth Street. One vehicle collided into the rear of a second vehicle causing minor damage. Fire and medical personnel on the scene had determined that neither driver was injured. However, the officers noticed there were several empty cans of alcohol in the one vehicle that collided with the rear of the second car. The driver, who had the noticeable smell of alcohol on his breath, admitted that he had been drinking that afternoon. He also had bloodshot eyes and his speech was slurred. He agreed to take a roadside sobriety exam and failed all tests. A breath alcohol test revealed a blood alcohol level four times the legal maximum. He was transported to the county jail and booked for D.U.I. His car was towed to impound. Report number: 160994078

In the center console was several hundred dollars in various denominations. In her purse was methamphetamine and marijuana along with a digital scale used for weighing narcotics. Her purse also contained a driver’s license belonging to another woman. The suspect was transported to Ingleside Station and booked for the warrant and for possession of narcotics for sale.

Serious Incidents:

1:15pm       Bayshore & Arleta                         Robbery
A man walked into a convenient store and went straight to the area where alcohol is kept. He took two bottles of champagne and started to walk out of the store when the clerk said, “Hey, this stuff ain’t free! You got to pay for it”. The suspect said, “don’t touch me”, and pointed to a handgun in his left front jacket pocket. The suspect walked out of the store with the champagne only to return and ask the clerk for his wallet. The clerk, fearing for his life, surrendered his IPad, and the suspect escaped walking north on Bayshore Blvd. Ingleside Officers Williams and Gomez arrived shortly thereafter to investigate the robbery.
