                        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’.

12:05pm     Toland & Evans                     Stolen Vehicle
A cell phone app helped Ingleside and Bayview officers capture a car thief. Ingleside Officers Cassinelli and Watts traveled to an address on Geneva to talk to a car thief victim. The victim’s friend said he was tracking the stolen vehicle on an “app” and gave the phone to the officers so they could begin the pursuit. Cassinelli and Watts advised Ingleside and Bayview units as the stolen car wandered out of the district and eventually stopped by several officers at Toland and Evans Street. The driver was arrested for auto theft and his passenger was released at the scene. Report number: 170033428

7:35pm       1500 Blk. Sunnydale              Resisting Arrest
A vehicle speeding through stop signs caught the attention of Ingleside Officers Scott and Hardy. The officers followed the vehicle for a short distance before stopping it at a nearby parking lot. The driver exited the vehicle and refused to show any identification. He did provide the officers with his name and a records check revealed he was driving with a suspended license and had several convictions for the same offense. He became combative when told by officers that he was being arrested. After a brief struggle, involving several officers, he was placed in custody and successfully taken to Ingleside Station.
