This week I would like to talk about Mission Station’s enforcement efforts in and around the Dolores Park area. Mission Station officers have been employing a variety of different tactics to address crime and disorder problems at Dolores Park. These tactics have included the use of both uniformed and plain clothes officers as well as community outreach efforts. Earlier this month Mission Station officers passed out public safety awareness fliers to alert park goers about recent auto burglaries in the area. The fliers also gave vehicle owners tips on how to help prevent them from being victims of auto burglaries. Mission Station officers have also been conducting extra uniformed and plain clothes patrols in and around the park. This past weekend, plain clothes officers made eleven arrests and issued over thirty citations in the park. The offenses included warrant violations, narcotics sales and alcohol related offenses. Uniformed officers have also been making additional passing calls at the park. Mission Station officers have made close to one thousand passing calls at the park since April.
On Wednesday, 07/03/2013 a women was walking her dog in the Park Police District near the area of Crestline and Burnett when her dog ate "laced poison-meatballs" that were laying on the ground. Additional tainted meatballs were found in the area. Please be careful of discarded food products while walking your dogs. Report any suspicious activity you may see to the police immediately.
Have a great weekend,
Captain Bob Moser
