Saturday, November 23rd, 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


5:19pm                                  100 Blk. Pope                  Assault Weapon/Narcotics

Ingleside officers Seavey and Barajas, along with Sgt. Alvarez, were undercover in the area when they spotted a vehicle, containing three men, double-park in front of a home where several search warrants had been served in the past. The officers approached the car and Sgt. Alvarez noticed the back seat passenger squirming. After he opened the door, the passenger quickly jumped out of the car and started running away with officers Barajas and Seavey in pursuit. During the pursuit, the suspect threw away a red duffle bag. After a short chase, officer Barajas was able to detain the suspect and place him in handcuffs as several other Ingleside units arrive to assist with the investigation. A search of the discarded duffle bag turned up almost 500 grams of marijuana. A search of the driver turned up brass knuckles, a glass pipe used to inhale narcotics, and a wallet containing his driver’s license and several identification cards not belonging to him. A search of the car and the other suspects yielded a quantities of methamphetamine and marijuana, items typically used to commit fraud, and a rifle. The three suspects were booked at Ingleside Station on several charges. Report number: 130994393

5:40pm                            Burlwood/Los Palmos                           Assault

Ingleside officers Thompson, Hornstein, and Chicas investigated a case of road rage involving a bicyclist and a motorist. The bicyclist told the officers he was riding westbound on Bella Vista when a man driving a car started honking at him from behind. Because the street is so narrow, the bicyclist was unable to pull far enough to the right to let the car pass so he kept riding. Soon, the victim said, the motorist found enough room to pull up next to him and began swearing at him. The bicyclist swore back and kept riding and the car soon drove ahead. A short time later the motorist suddenly stopped, blocking the road, and forcing the bicyclist to crash into a curb wrecking the bicycle and slight injuring the rider. The motorist then drove away but not before the bicyclist wrote down his license plate number. A records check revealed that the motorist lived a short distance away and Officer Thompson went to the address where the driver spontaneous said, “Yeah, a bicyclist wouldn’t move out of my way so I ran him off the road”.  He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for aggravated assault. Report number: 130994434
