                      DUI Saturation Patrols This Thursday

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrols on Thursday, January 19, 2017 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’.                    


9:27pm       Excelsior & Paris                       Resisting Arrest
Four men drinking alcohol on a street corner caught the attention of Ingleside Officers Marshall and Rissetto. Three of the men stopped drinking and obeyed the officer’s commands to stand still while being questioned. However, one of the suspects, too inebriated to stand for long, became combative and had to be restrained. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for being drunk in public and for resisting arrest. Report number: 170029803

11:15pm     Vermont & Cesar Chavez         Stolen Auto
Officers throughout the city were on the lookout for a stolen Chevy Impala that was taken from a Sausalito address. Ingleside Officers Carew and Wong spotted the vehicle, with three occupants, at Cesar Chavez and Kansas Street. They radioed for backup and pulled the stolen Chevy over at Cesar Chavez and Vermont. The two passengers and the driver were handcuffed and removed from the car. A search revealed a quantity of methamphetamine in the driver’s pocket. In the car were stolen identifications and bank cards. The driver also had an expired license and was wanted on a Santa Clara County arrest warrant. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for a variety of crimes. His passengers were released at the scene. Report number: 170030101

Serious Incidents:

1:48pm       Unit Blk. Amethyst                  Hot Prowl Burglary
A man working in his home office heard a loud “bang” from the area of his front gate. A short time later he heard another “bang” and then noises coming from the downstairs area of his home. He went to a stairway and yelled “hey”, and then saw two suspects leaving his home empty handed. Ingleside Officers Cvetovac and Debellis responded and discovered the burglars entered the home through the front door. Report number: 170028811

2:30pm       100 Blk. Miraloma                  Hot Prowl Burglary
A woman arrived home and saw a strange car parked in front of her residence. She walked up the entrance and found her front door kicked in. Instead of backing out and calling police, the woman walked into her home and found two suspects. She asked one of them why they were in her home and he replied, “Everything is okay” and walked past her out of the home. However, he quickly changed his mind, and tried to grab her cell phone. She resisted and he and his accomplice ran to a waiting Silver Chevrolet which sped away. Ingleside Officers Chew, Trail, Dominquez, and Vong arrived and searched the ransacked home for clues. The victim also surveyed her home and discovered jewelry, accessories, and cash worth thousands of dollars missing from the residence. Report number: 170028736
