Although burglaries are slightly down during this reporting period, we are still seeing un-forced entry burglaries throughout the district. We have found that in several burglaries the suspect has gained entry through un-locked windows or doors. Please remember to properly secure your doors and windows.
On Friday, July 20th, I attended a meeting hosted by Joaquin Torres of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services along with representatives from BART, the Health Department, Probation, Parole, the District Attorney’s Office, David Campos’ Office, local business representatives and Bevan Dufty, Director of H.O.P.E. regarding 16th and Mission. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss solutions to some of the chronic issues at that location. I have since been in contact with representatives from Probation and Parole regarding collaborative enforcement projects in the area. Mission Station Officers have made over 130 arrests at 16th and Mission since April.
Thanks and Have a Great Weekend,
