Via KQED – oh, I see.
Interestingly enough, elements of the designerly community plus a North Bay tech firm’s marketing department are colluding to ban our current Oro en Paz, Fierro en Guerra City of San Francisco rising phoenix flag and replace it with something like Chicago‘s, or something.
Until that time, look forward to more 41510-style SF/Oakland mashup logos from our SFPD Academy.
Yelplash! – 100s Upon 100s of One-Star Yelp Reviews for Napa Valley Wine Train – Also, “NAPA VALLEY RAILROAD POLICE!?”Tuesday, August 25th, 2015
This post is two posts…
…two posts in one!
Moving on, to this – it was the “Napa Valley Railroad Police(!)” busted / escorted off the premises these women?
WTF to that.
“Are Napa Valley Railroad Police Officers “real cops?
Yes. Every one of our peace officers is a fully empowered police officer under the authority of section 830.33(e) of the California Penal Code. Our officers have peace officer authority 24 hours a day anywhere in the State of California the same as any city police officer our county deputy sheriff. Our primary jurisdiction extends to in and around property of the Napa Valley Railroad.
Can Napa Valley Railroad Police Officers write traffic tickets?
Yes. Our officers can enforce all of the laws of the State of California including all sections of the California Vehicle Code. Enforcement is an essential component of carrying out our public safety mission. We focus our attention on violations related to the railroad.
Why does the Railroad need its own police department? Is there that much crime?
The Napa Valley Railroad Company operates its own police department with the intention of limiting its reliance on public resources. The Napa Valley Wine Train carries up to 350 people at a time on one train. The railroad line includes over 90 public and private crossings that run over and alongside Highway 29. Our mission includes protecting the patrons, employees, and assets of the railroad. We believe that our presences is the most effective deterrent to crime.”
This FAQ only leads to more questions.
And what’s next, the Cliff House Restaurant Police? The Ronald McDonald Police Squad?
Anyway, chew on that.
The Wine Police, they live inside of my head
The Wine Police, they come to me in my bed
The Wine Police, they’re coming to arrest me, oh, no

SF Sheriff’s Statement: Quick Action by SFSD Sergeant Facilitates Resuscitation of Man Found Overdosed at SF City Hall
San Francisco, CA – Quick thinking on the part of a Sergeant in the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department (SFSD) saved the life of a man who was found unconscious and not breathing in a City Hall bathroom on Tuesday after an apparent drug overdose.
Sgt. J. Caramucci responded at about 11:30pm to a call from a facility custodian reporting that a man in his 30’s was unconscious in a bathroom stall. Sgt. Caramucci used a pocket knife to open the locked stall door and found the man unconscious, with a needle in his arm, and not breathing. He immediately called for paramedics, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and assistance from deputy sheriffs. The man was resuscitated by paramedics who arrived on the scene within four minutes of the Sgt.’s call. The man was transported to a hospital.
A liquid substance found later at the scene tested positive for heroin.
“We’re proud of our deputies for their swift and effective work in this case,” said Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. “Overdosing in City Hall couldn’t be more emblematic of a resurgent drug crisis hitting San Francisco. Heroin usage is way up and existing treatment centers are not enough. Nationwide, reports suggest that we’re looking at a burgeoning public health and public safety crisis.”
