                       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’.

Neighbors called police to report a suspicious vehicle and a man inside screaming. Ingleside Officers Hoge, Siracusa, and Quinlan responded and found the Lincoln Town Car with a man in the front seat and a woman in back.

He also was on probation with a search condition from two narcotics convictions, one in San Francisco and one in San Mateo County. The officers searched the car and found a large quantity of packaged methamphetamine, a pipe to smoke the substance, and a large amount of cash. The suspect was arrested for possession of narcotics for sale. Report number: 170761061

Serious Incidents:

8:20pm       Concord & Mission                Carjacking
A woman walked into Ingleside Station and told Officers McMilton and Archilla that she, and her teenage son, were the victims of a carjacking. She told the officers that a short time before she had parked her car on Concord Street, between Mission and Morse. She started to exit the car when an unknown suspect pushed her into the car and said, “Give me the keys”. The man tried to grab her car keys but she resisted. She looked over toward her son and saw another suspect holding him against a wall. Scared for her and her son’s safety, she released the keys and got out of the car. The suspects then got into the car and drove away. Later that evening her car was recovered on the 200 block of 29th Street. It was towed to impound for crime scene investigations.
