Captain’s Message

Leads On-LineCaptain Curtis Lum

Electronic devices such as smart phones, tablets, and laptops are favorite targets of thieves. These items are stolen in residential burglaries, car burglaries, and robberies.

Leads On-line is the nation’s largest online investigative database that is used by more than 4,000 law enforcement agencies to recover stolen property and to solve crimes.

“Report It” is a service that citizens can use to enter their own serial numbers, photographs, item descriptions or scanned receipts of all of their items of value directly into Leads On-line’s database without charge. This would allow law enforcement to locate any of their stolen items if someone attempted to pawn the items in any pawn shop nationwide.

Leads On-line has also partnered with eBay in order to prevent thieves from using eBay to offer stolen items for sale. eBay automatically uploads all of its transactions into the Leads On-line database. The instructions on how to use the Leads On-line database is posted online at leadsonline.com or reportit.leadsonline.com.

CAPTAIN’S COMPLIMENTARY LETTER Captain John Sanford

Dear Taraval Community,

It was with great honor I had the opportunity to serve as your district Captain. My stay here at the Taraval was short, but extremely pleasing. Captain Curtis Lum will be my successor and I can only hope that you accept him with open arms as you did with me.

I will always cherish my time and memories here in the Taraval district because this community was so engaging. I had the privilege of meeting so many great community members, merchants, and neighborhood groups, but apologies to the associations that we had scheduled to meet with in the upcoming months. I hope that all of you will continue to partner with SF SAFE and build those neighborhood associations and neighborhood watch groups.

Lastly, I will truly miss all of our regular members who attended the monthly community meetings every month. There were many special community members that showed up 30 minutes prior to the start of the meeting and made sure that I was ready to go at 7:00 p.m. sharp and I thank them for being my time-keeper.

The Taraval Station has an extremely talented Community Police Advisory Board (CPAB) that I would like to respectfully thank for their time, patience and dedication to the Taraval District. I hope that each CPAB member will hang in there through yet another transition and help the new captain so the flow that we all strived for could continue without further delay to this great flourishing group.

My heart and prayers will be with the great residents and merchants of the Taraval District, may God bless you all.

Respectfully, John Sanford, Jr.

Blotter Report December 17

ALERT!

Be On the Look Out!

During the last reporting period from December 04, 2010 to present, the Taraval District has experienced an up tick in street robberies. The majority of these despicable and criminal acts are occuning along the N Judah and M Ocean Muni bus lines. Although we have devoted an inordinate amount of resources and time to address the increase in robberies throughout the Taraval District, are efforts are still not enough to deter or apprehend the responsible culprits. Therefore, we are reminding and sounding the alarm to all, “to be on the look out” for any suspicious activity or suspects in your close proimity. We also suggest that individuals be mindful of their surrounding area throughout their travels. Lastly, if at all possible, all citizens should educate themselves on the danger of operating small electronic devices (i.e., IPhone, IPod, IPad, etc) while they are walking in public. These devices distract individuals and make them prime targets for robbers. Based on our experience, robbers are more incline to target an unexpected victim who is in possessions of the aforementioned items and not paying close attention, so please put those devices away out of plain view- “out of sight, out of mind. “ Remember, an informed citizen is a safe citizen.

On behalf of Captain John Sanford, Jr. and all the men and women at Taravel District Station, we would like to take this festive opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.

RECYCLING THEFT TASK FORCE

As a result of our community meetings, many of you have told me about the problems that you are having with recycling theft on your block or in front of your home. Because this was a community concern, we started working on efforts to combat the problem immediately. As I shared with many of you at our community meeting, we wrote over 15 citations last month for recycling theft, but we are just getting started.

We are attempting to educate the public about recycling theft and warn them that such an act is a violation of the law. We will continue to take actions against those that we see violate this law.

Be on the look out for recycling thieves!

If you are having a problem with recycling theft at your home or on your block, please notify us by calling the non-emergency number (415-553-0123) only if you observe this in progress. You can also send an e-mail to my administrative sergeant, Kevin.mannix@sfgov.org.

Sgt Streegan from our Midnight Watch has been assigned as the Recycling theft liaison officer. If you are experiencing a problem with theft on your block, please call Taraval between 9 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. and ask to speak to Sgt. Streegan regarding this problem. Please be prepared to give the sergeant specific information such as the description of the suspect, clothing, what they are carrying or pushing, and the normal time they normally strike on your street.

SPECIAL NOTICE - MARK YOUR CALENDARS PLEASE!

Due to the Christmas Holiday, there will be no newsletter on Friday, December 24, 2010. Please spend the day with your family, love ones and friends. Have a safe and
