This week a San Francisco jury convicted Fredrick Dozier of three violent sexual assaults committed against three separate victims. The attacks occurred in the Mission District over the course of several months in 2011. The jury convicted him of a total of 25 felony counts. Dozier’s arrest was the result of the community and the police working together. At the time of the incident numerous Mission Station Officers and other units from the SFPD saturated the areas of occurrence. The SFPD received the assistance of community groups as well tips from community members. Dozier’s conviction brings closure to a violent and troubling case.

This week Mission Station sponsored two gang prevention programs for the 6th graders at James Lick Middle School. The first program was focused on the children and officers from Mission Station along with school counselors and members of the community provided students with a presentation on avoiding gangs. The second program included children with their parents. The program stressed open, continuous communication and also provided parents with gang prevention tips. The program was a result of the efforts of Mission Station Officers John Cathey and David Sands.
