Are You Obligated to Tell Out-Of-Town Visitors to Not Leave Anything in Parked Cars? Yes, Of Course – This is San Francisco

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

I tell everybody who comes to town.

It’s my obligation.

Now, let’s hear from Northern Station SFPD Police Captain Ann Mannix:

I just looked at our most recent crime stats and, no surprise to me, auto break-ins are up yet again… Help us out by taking anything valuable out of your car and encourage others to do so as well, especially your out-of-town visitors.”

Indeed.

Walking on, walking on broken glass in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle:

Armed Robbery: Why You Shouldn’t Use Your iPhone at Haight and Webster While Waiting for MUNI at 4:00 PM

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Cause somebody will pull out a gun and steal it from you.

Let’s check the story from Ann Mannix, SFPD Captain of Northern Station:

Yesterday a guy was waiting for the bus at Haight and Webster (4:15 PM) looking at his phone not paying attention to his surroundings when someone walked right up on him, pointed a gun and stole his iPhone 4.

I bet if he was aware of his surroundings the criminal wouldn’t have targeted him.

Conceal your valuables and be aware of your surroundings, always!”

Apparently, this isn’t a good place to try to hold onto your cellie.

Oh well.

Lower Haight is For Lovers…

…and armed cell phone thieves.

Your Police Station’s Daily Overnight Crime-Accident Update: Available on the Twitter These Days, Probably

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Does your police station/area Captain/area Commander have its/his/her very own Twitter feed these days? If not, why not?

This is how the Richmond District Police Station does it, for example:

3/24@1115PM Victim on 38 Geary bus fell asleep listening to iPhone. She woke up when her music stopped. 4 perps took the phone & fled*

3/25@658AM Fulton@Park Presidio-car making right turn struck pedestrian in the X-walk. Ped taken to hospital by ambulance.

Now of course, there are others who got going last year and before, like Captain Ann Mannix in the Western Addition.

What about your police station? What’s it Twitter?

Geary Boulevard, the No Left Turn world champ:

What’s that, you don’t have a Twitter feed available for your area?

Well, why not? Ask for one, if you want.

*Or get a Microsoft Zune HD instead for like $100 –  nobody will try to steal it, I can guarantee you that.

Pithy Advice From an SFPD Captain: “If You are a Victim of Crime, Remember the Suspect’s Shoes.” Here’s Why

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Here’s the latest Tweet from Northern Station Captain Ann Mannix:

“If you are a victim of crime, remember the suspect’s shoes, they always change their clothes, never their shoes.”

Sounds like Good Advices to me.

And the zipper on the left elevator pump had a tag, but not the one on the right, and….

Northern Station Police Captain Advises Not to Walk the Western Addition While Staring at a Cell Phone – Recent Robberies

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Here are the latest Twitterings from Northern Station Captain Ann Mannix:

Just read 4 street robbery reports from the weekend and every victim had their cell phones in their hands…conceal your cell”

So don’t be like this: Really.

Here’s how Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria defines the Western Addition, apparently. Rather a small piece of real estate compared with my version of what constitutes the Western A:

Let’s be careful out there…
