Incident Date:
Thursday, November 21st, 2013

The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on December 17, 2013.  Thank you.

Outstanding Police Work:  Members of the Ingleside Police Station have been hard at work, while putting their lives on the line, and recovered a total of five guns between a five day period, beginning Oct 31, 2013 to Nov 5, 2013. Among the weapons recovered were three handguns, one shotgun and one Tech-9 sub-machine gun all stemming from four separate incidents. Of the five subjects taken into custody, two were on probation and had extensive police records. We strongly believe that these great arrests may have prevented some serious crimes from taking place. Thanks to these great officers, the streets are a little saferJ.

The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together. The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  NERT also offers continuing training for graduates and activities that support building robust neighborhood teams.  For more information, visit the NERT website at http://sfgov.org//sffdnert, or contact Lt. Erica Arteseros at (415)970-2022 or sffdnert@sfgov.org

Are you someone who is interested in disaster preparedness and wants to help out your community while working hand in hand with law enforcement? Then the ALERT program is for you!                                     
                                            What is the A.L.E.R.T. Program?

The San Francisco Police Department has developed a volunteer citizen disaster preparedness program. The Auxiliary Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) is modeled after and works in partnership with the San Francisco Fire Department's Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT). The ALERT program will train members of the public to assist law enforcement in essential tasks after a major disaster. Such tasks may include: traffic control, foot patrol of business and residential areas, and reporting criminal activity. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and live, work, or attend high school in San Francisco.

Three steps to becoming an
A.L.E.R.T. volunteer:
1. Complete NERT training and receive certification. To register for NERT training courses please visit www.sfgov.org/sfnert
2. Once NERT certified, forward a copy of your NERT ID card to the ALERT program. sfpdalert@sfov.org
3. After clearing a basic background check the individual is eligible to register for ALERT training.

An informational meeting will be held on Dec. 5th at 7:00pm. The meeting will be held at the San Francisco Police Academy in the parking lot bungalow. This is not a mandatory meeting for interested volunteers. Come have your questions answered! 

The next ALERT training class has been scheduled for Jan. 18th, 2014, from 8:00am-5:00pm. This class will be held at the San Francisco Police Academy, in the parking lot bungalow.

Scam Alert:  Here is how it works: the suspect will call the victim and identify himself as a PG&E employee.  The suspect will ask for the victim by name and ask if he/she is the owner of a particular business or property.  Once the victim replies yes, the suspect tells the victim that his/her bill is delinquent in a specific amount.  The suspect then tells the victim that he/she needs to pay the delinquent bill by a certain time or their service will be terminated.  The suspect instructs the victim to buy MoneyPak cards in a specific amount.  The suspect then instructs the victim to read the card's code numbers to him over the phone.  Once that is done, the money is gone and the scam is complete.

The suspect will give the victim a call-back number that goes to a voicemail that identifies itself via recording as PG&E.

If you receive a call like this, please call the customer service number on your billing statement to confirm the call is legitimate.  If that call turns out to be a scam, please have a police report made


1:56am                                  700 Blk.  Cayuga                              Burglary

An early morning call of a “burglary in progress” sent Ingleside officers Dilag, Lok, Hauscarriague, Chew, Holland, Lockett, Hermosa, and Zahn to a home on the 700 block of Cayuga. The home owner told dispatch that the suspect was in the garage. Upon arriving at the location, officers Hauscarriague, Holland, Dilag, and Lok slowly and carefully entered the garage while the other officers secured the surrounding neighborhood. A search of the garage failed to turn up the suspect but officer Chew, who had gained access to a neighbor’s yard, saw the suspect climbing a backyard fence. Officer Chew radioed his description and officers Dilag and Lok ran out of the garage and, along with Officers Hauscarriague and Lockett found the suspect standing on the back deck of a home on San Juan Avenue where he quietly surrendered. Before booking the suspect, the officers recovered several purses burglarized from the garage along with a hunting knife, a stolen ATM card, and some methamphetamine. Report number: 130985621
