        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:

11:42pm     4800 Blk Mission                Robbery
It was an event that could have been a scene in a Clint Eastwood movie with a victim meting out some “street justice” on a trio of robbers. The victim was walking home, passing the Safeway Store, when he was confronted by three men who demanded he relinquish his backpack. The victim refused and crossed the street to avoid the suspects. But the suspects followed and confronted the victim again and demanded his backpack. This time the victim warned, “Leave me alone, I’m trained. I don’t want to hurt you”.  Ignoring the warning, the three suspects became more confrontational with one of the suspects telling the other, “too whoop his ** and offering a knife to persuade the victim to give up his property”. Fearing for his life, the victim, who is trained in mixed martial arts, quickly punched one of the suspects four times in the face and then kneed him in the body, causing the victim to fall to the ground in pain and the other two suspects to sprint away in fear. Ingleside Officers Zhao, Washington, McCall, and Lozano soon arrived and arrested the injured suspect while calling for medical assistance. The other two suspects were located a short distance away and transported to Ingleside Station for booking. The injured suspect was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of fractures to the bones around his left eye and a broken nose. He was later also arrested for robbery. Report number: 160972626
