                          Sobriety Checkpoint In San Francisco

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint on Saturday, September 23, 2017, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M.

The deterrent effect of sobriety checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized sobriety checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely. Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 people were killed by an impaired driver.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers 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.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DUI checkpoints.

DUI checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, and 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. Everyone is reminded to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1’.



6:08pm       Geneva & London                      Robbery w/Force
Ingleside Officers Quinlan and Siracusa were on routine patrol when they spotted two men fighting at the corner of Geneva and London Streets. One of the combatants was on the ground and the other was standing over him throwing punches. The officers turned on their overhead lights and siren and stopped their patrol car. The upright combatant, seeing the patrol car, fled into the nearby barbershop with the officers in pursuit. He traveled through the establishment and was finally apprehended at the back entrance of the shop. Meanwhile, heeding the call for assistance, 13 other Ingleside officers soon arrived to assess the scene and help Quinlan and Siracusa. Medical assistance was summoned for the victim who had several injuries to his face. He told the officers that the man who attacked him had been fired by him a short while before at a nearby business. He said he was walking by the barbershop when the suspect started calling him names and then came out and attacked him. He said the suspect had a firearm stolen from the victim. The officers searched the barbershop and found two firearms in the back of the business. They were confiscated by the police. The suspect was arrested and taken to Ingleside Station for booking. Report number: 170755202
