Safety Tips

Captain’s Comments

Season’s Greetings!

As we enter the Holiday Season, certain safety tips always bear repeating.
These tips should be things we concentrate on everyday, but there must be
heightened awareness during this time of year.
Criminals commit crimes because they find something attractive that allows
them the opportunity to do so. This attractiveness can come in the form of
Locations, Times of Day, Type of Victims, Types of Items, etc. If we take away
what is creating this opportunity or attractiveness, crime will lessen! Please
review these safety tips provided by Project SAFE.
Please also remember to drive safely during this season. There are more
people and vehicles out and about and the rain will eventually start. Walk safely
also! Officers will be enforcing not only vehicle violations to protect pedestrians,
but Pedestrian violations that also cause accidents.
Here are the Project SAFE tips:




                                                                                            1

                                                         Holiday Safety Tips
Last month we listed some safety tips to remember while doing your holiday shopping. Now we will highlight a f
tips on preventing crimes that usually happen more frequently during the holiday season. Pickpocketing & Str
Robbery
        Only carry a limited amount of cash and few credit cards on you.
        Keep valuables like keys, cell phone, & money in separate pockets.
        Stay in well-lit, well-traveled areas.
        Be aware of your surroundings and suspicious persons, especially in parking garages, on public transport
        crowded places.
Auto Break-ins
        Keep your car locked at all times; never leave your car running, even "just for a minute".
        Do not leave anything visible in your car.
        If you place shopping bags in your car trunk, do so before parking or move your car to a different locatio
Home Burglaries
        Keep all windows and doors locked at all times.
        Keep wrapped gifts and valuables out of public view or away from windows where people can see them.
        If going on vacation, have a trusted neighbor watch your house, stop your mail and newspaper deliveries
        light, and an alarm if you have one.
        Do not advertise that you are going on vacation - (such as on your voicemail or on social networking web
        Consider having SAFE perform a free home security assessment.
Merchant Safety
        Train your employees on observing and reporting suspicious activities.
        Consider having more than one employee open & close the business.
        Ensure that alarms and video surveillance are working properly.
        Learn to identify fraud - checks, credit cards & cash!

Holiday Safety Tips & Brochures

   One thing I would like to add to these tips that we are seeing much more of in
   this day and age is cell phone usage. Please be aware of your surroundings
   while talking or texting on your cell phones. We are seeing many more grand
   thefts and robberies of cell phones because people are so tunnel-visioned on
   talking or texting. Again, don’t provide the opportunity or make it attractive for
   those that will take advantage!

Case Number #091168756
Battery with Serious Injuries

On 11/13/09 at approximately 0251 hours, Officers Suguitan #2482 and Santos #2474 were
dispatched to O’Farrell/Jones streets regarding a female victim, who was yelling and
screaming for help.

The officers did not find anyone in distress in this area, but searched nearby and found the
victim one block away on Ellis/Jones streets. The victim had dried blood underneath her nose
and around her lips, as well as 4 missing front teeth, that had been knocked out.

The victim reported to officers that she was standing on the corner of O’Farrell/Jones when
she was approached by an unknown suspect who said, “f_ _ _ you bitch, you have no right to
be here.” After making this comment, the unknown suspect punched the victim in the mouth
with a closed fist, causing her 4 teeth to fall to the sidewalk.

After committing this violent crime, the unknown suspect walked northbound on Jones St.
and went inside an unknown apartment building on the 400 block of Jones St.

The unknown suspect was described as a black male, 30-35 years of age, 6’00”, 220 pounds
with black hair. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and black jeans.

The victim was transferred to General Hospital. There are no known witnesses to this
incident, but the victim can identify the suspect if she sees him again.

Arrests Log
On 11/18/2009 The midnight units were conducting narcotics surveillance on the corner of Jones/Ellis
St, Off Royer #544 and Off Sarcos #2377 observed a man making narcotics sales. The arrest team of
plain clothed Officers moved in and arrested the man. A computer check revealed the man to be on
active probation and had a stay away order from Ellis/Jones St as well. Many narcotics users/sellers
are on active probation and have stay away orders too.

On 11/18/2009 the crime fighting married duo of Brian & Irene Michaud and Sgt Jerry D’Arcy
observed a man acting suspicious attempting to conceal contraband on the corner of Ellis/Jones St. Sgt
D’Arcy and the Michauds exited the car and detained the individual. Sgt D’Arcy conducted a search
and located a loaded gun in the suspect’s waistband. A computer check revealed the man to be on
active parole for assault and battery and had a parole warrant as well. Again another parolee out of
compliance with his parole conditions.

The San Francisco Police Department has implement Text-a-Tip on August 20, 2009. Text-
a-Tip is a Web-based program allowing citizens to report criminal activity or to supply crime-
related information through texting from their cell phones. Studies indicate that teenagers and
young adults text more often than they talk on their cell phones, and this program is aimed at
getting this demographic more involved in reporting crime. To report information, the tipster
enters either TIP411or 847411 in the "To" field and the keyword SFPD in the text field,
followed by the message. (Complete instructions follow.) Through computers with Internet
capability, SFPD Operations personnel will view all tips received 24/7 and evaluate each one.
If the tip is of an emergency nature, personnel will forward it immediately to the Department
of Emergency Management for officer dispatch. They will forward all other tips for
assignment to the appropriate investigative bureau or district station. Investigative units will
have an Internet-capable computer at their disposal and will be able to text back and forth
with the tipster based on a randomly assigned ID number that the system provided by Citizen
Observer, Inc., supplies. The ID number is wholly confidential and is maintained in the
company’s server. Unless the tipster wishes to supply personal information, all the tips
remain anonymous. The Department's telephone Confidential Tip Line, 415-575-4444,
remains in place as an alternative way for citizens to report criminal activity or to provide
information regarding a criminal investigation. For more information, please contact: Public
Affairs Office 553-1651.

Don’t Dial That number: “I received a telephone call last evening from an individual
identifying himself as an AT&T Service Technician (could also be Telus) who was conducting

Upon contacting the telephone company, I was informed that by pushing 90#, you give the
requesting individual full access to your telephone line, which enables them to place long
distance calls billed to your home phone number. I was further informed that this scam has
been originating from many local jails/prisons DO NOT press 90# for ANYONE. After
checking with Verizon they also said it was true, so do not dial 90# for anyone!”


Or This One, Either: If someone calls up claiming to be a CHP officer, phone-company
employee or even a jail inmate and tells you to hit "star 72" on your phone, don't do it - it's a
scam.
Some people learned the hard way when they got huge phone bills for unauthorized calls,
authorities said today.

The CHP is taking particular umbrage because some scam artists have masqueraded as one
of their own, calling with supposed bad news such as the involvement of a relative or close
friend in a crash.

The scammer tells the person to contact another "officer" by dialing star 72 on the keypad,
followed by another phone number. But star 72 is a custom feature for call forwarding. When
someone punches in star 72, it causes all incoming calls to ring at the other number.

Another person in on the scam is then able to accept collect and third-party calls - and the
victim gets stuck with the bill.

"We're trying to get the word out that the CHP will never call somebody and tell them your
loved ones been involved in a crash and that they need to call this number," said CHP Sgt.
Trent Cross.

There are variations of this scam. Callers have pretended to be inmates who contact people
"accidentally" and then say they need help calling relatives because they can make only one
call.

Scammers have also pretended to be phone-company technicians who need to check phone
lines for problems and tell people to hit star 72 or 72 pound, depending on the service
provider, so they can get "remote access."

Others have pretended to be calling from a pay phone and claiming they need help to make
an emergency call.

Authorities recommend that anyone who is asked to punch a strange code into the phone
hang up and report the call to law enforcement. Those who believe they have fallen victim to
the scheme should press star 73 or 73 pound to turn off the call-forwarding feature.

BIKE SAFETY: Please teach your children that they must follow the road rules when riding
there bikes. Each year there are children that are injured or killed because they are riding
on the wrong side of the street, they fail to stop at stop signs, or they fail to follow some other
rules of the road. Make sure that they are wearing their bike helmets. It’s not only the safe
way to ride but it is the law.

WALKING TO SCHOOL: Plan the route your children are going to take if they are walking to
school. It is important to try to minimize the number of streets they have to cross. Keep the
route as simple as possible. If you have the time do a dry run with your kids so they feel
comfortable when the time comes to do it on their own. If at all possible, make sure the kids
do not walk alone. If there are other children in the neighborhood walking to school it’s a
good idea that everyone walks together.

STRANGER SAFETY: Teach your children not to talk to strangers. They should not accept
presents or rides from them. Also, be sure to pick a family password. This word should be
used if someone different is picking them up from school, sports or other locations. It should
be a “different” word like pepperoni pizza. That way no one else will be able to guess it.

AFTER SCHOOL SAFETY: If the kids are alone after school for a short time make sure that
they follow some basic guidelines:
   ** They should keep the doors locked at all times.
       ** They should never tell someone on the phone that there are no adults at home.
       Teach them to say that you can’t come to the phone right now.
   ** Post a list of emergency phone numbers near the phone.
       ** Have them call you at work or on your cell phone as soon as they get home.
       ** Set up rules on what kind of food they can fix. Younger children should never use
       the stove without adult supervision.
       ** Be sure to set up guidelines on who they can have over (if anyone) and what they
       are allowed to do.

Fraud Alert!!!
Remember: “If it looks to good to be true…It probably is a scam!”

We highly recommend organizing a SAFE Business Crime Watch program in your area.
SAFE also offers customized security audits for any business in San Francisco, as well as
violence prevention and loss prevention trainings for management and employees. Crime
Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles are applied during site
assessments.

Commercial establishments that are open between 2:00 A.M. and 6:00 A.M.
should not hesitate to call the police if they see suspicious vehicles or
suspicious people loitering around their businesses.

Owners of these businesses should consider having multiple employees
working during late hours. Some establishments are locking all entrance doors
late at night, forcing customers to knock on doors, allowing employees to make
decisions on allowing entrance.

The San Francisco Police Department is increasing patrols around commercial
establishments open during the early morning hours.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact your district police station, the
SFPD Dispatch at 553-0123, the SFPD Robbery Detail at 553-1201, or San
Francisco SAFE, Inc. at 673-7233.

If there is an emergency, telephone 911!
