Northern Station Newsletter
Captain Greg McEachern
April 15, 2013 #13-8
Often times, my comments in the newsletter are related to criminal activity, traffic related issues, or other policing concerns. In this newsletter, however, I’m going to comment about community related activities that Northern Station is involved in that I feel are worthy of bringing to your attention.
As many of you may be aware, Chief Suhr is an avid proponent of community engagement, especially any
community engagement or activity involving kids. The Chief’s belief and mine as well, is that the more engaging and
involved the Police Department can be with our youth, the better opportunity we have for a positive impact on the lives of the future adults of San Francisco. To further our community engagement activities, especially involving the youth of our district, Northern Station is partnering with the community on two current and future projects. Our Department is in the midst of a hiring increase, an increase sorely necessary. As part of this hiring increase and to further our community engagement, Northern Station has partnered with the Police Academy and the newly hired recruit officers to begin their community involvement long before they hit the streets. In cooperation with Captain David Lazar, the Commanding Officer of the Academy, Northern Station officers, along with a number of recruits in training, have been visiting the after school programs in the Northern to participate in after school activities with the youth of the district. Last Friday, fifteen recruits from the current Academy class partnered with three officers from Northern Station and visited three after school programs held by the Buchanan YMCA. During the visits the recruit officers were introduced to the youth of the Northern District and had an opportunity to assist with homework, read to the children, and play games and activities during the afternoon. The response from the children and the involved officers was extremely positive. Over the next five months the visits to the after school programs will continue every few weeks and will culminate with the entire recruit class participating in the back pack give away to over 2000 youths in early August. The next visit is later this month and the officers will not only visit a couple of the YMCA after school programs but will also attend the after school program for Mo Magic, a youth program serving children living in the Western Addition. Our hope with this program is that the youth of the district will have an opportunity to see police officers in a positive light while at the same time our newest officers will obtain valuable tools for community engagement and communication that will reap benefits for them throughout their careers.
The second project that Northern Station is partnering with the community in is the Collective Impact Program that helps fund the Mo Magic Program for the youth in the Western Addition. This program predominantly serves low income and high-risk youth, offering opportunities for civic engagement, enrichment, community service, and youth development. Some of the activities that the Collective Impact program will provide for over the summer include field trips, book distributions, the back pack give-a-way, transitional youth speaking activities, and other events supporting youth throughout the summer. Last month, Northern Station officers participated in a basketball tournament fundraiser at Ella Hill Hutch with other city agencies with the proceeds benefiting the Mo Magic programs under Collective Impact. Next month, many members of Northern Station will participate in another fundraiser supporting Collective Impact and it’s a fundraiser I’m mentioning to you in hopes that you may be able to support it as well.
On May 9th, Collective Impact will have its third annual fundraiser “More than Magic.” The fundraiser is the largest event Collective Impact has and the proceeds are a majority of what supports the program throughout the summer. During the fundraiser there will be a More than Magic Awards and Reception attended by Supervisor London Breed, Supervisor Mark Farrell, former Supervisor Bevan Dufty, and other City dignitaries. The event will take place at the Fort Mason Center at the General’s Residence. I’ve attached a link to the fundraiser below and I encourage you to view the link, buy individual tickets to attend the event, or if possible, become a sponsor for the event to help the low income and high-risk youth of our district. I also encourage you to pass this information onto any individuals or corporations that you believe may be able to help in this extremely worthwhile fundraiser. Remember, many of us are fortunate, sometimes more fortunate than others. This fundraiser will allow for those of us more fortunate than others the opportunity to assist the less fortunate and enrich their lives through opportunity, enrichment, and development.
Here is the link to the Program

City Wide and Northern District Crime Statistics Year-to-Date 2013
Violent Crime +4%
Property Crime +14%
Violent Crime +6%
Property Crime +41%
Listed above are the City Wide and Northern District crime statistics through March 30, 2013. As you can see, the
significant difference in the Northern District as compared to the City is related to Property Crime. I’ve mentioned in previous articles the largest contributor to the increase is thefts from locked vehicles. The Northern District is up 88% year to date. Please review previous articles for tips on avoiding being a victim of a theft from your vehicle and please help educate the public in this area. If you don’t leave items in your vehicle for thieves to steal, you usually won’t become a victim of a theft. Thieves don’t usually break into vehicles unless they “see” an item they want; and once they see an item of value in your vehicle, your chance of becoming a victim increases ten-fold.
On a final note to these thefts, the number of car break-ins for the past month has decreased quite a bit. I
contribute it to two factors. First, the public has become more aware of the problem (in part by education/information through this newsletter) and assisted in alleviating the problem by not leaving articles in their vehicles. Second, Northern Station has conducted a number of anti auto-break-in operations in the past two months that has increased our arrests in this area 187% compared to the same time last year. I thank you for contributing to the decrease and I’m hopeful that our percentage in this area will continue to decrease as we continue throughout the year.

**The officers of Northern Station work hard each and every day to keep the streets safe for
everyone. They are making some excellent arrests. Here is a small snapshot of what they are
doing. I encourage you to log on to the SFPD website and under ‘compstat’ you will find a link to
‘crime maps’ that will provide very timely crime information and a greater accounting.
Terrorist Threats, Malicious Mischief, Vandalism to Property, Breaking Windows Arrest, 4/02/13 12:30 Am 900 Block of Eddy St.
Officers were called to an apartment building in the above area regarding a male at the caller’s front door yelling threats and swinging a knife around. The caller said that the man at his door may be his upstairs neighbor. The caller said that earlier in the day he got into a physical altercation with his upstairs neighbor regarding the neighbor leaving the front door to the apartment complex open. The
caller said that the subject became irate and started swinging his keys (on a chain), around, which got close to hitting the caller in the face. The caller grabbed the subject and began to wrestle on the ground. Another neighbor assisted in breaking up the fight. Later that day the subject came downstairs to the front door of the caller. The caller said that the subject was intoxicated and had a knife.
The subject was yelling various threats to “cut up” the caller. The subject slammed the knife into the caller’s front door causing some minor damage to the door. The subject also made other threats to “slash all four of his tires, and he knows where the caller lives”.
The subject eventually stopped cutting on the door and went back to his upstairs apartment. A few minutes later the subject came down the fire escape and appeared at the caller’s rear window. The caller saw the subject swing an unknown object and hit the window, breaking it. The caller called 911. The subject returned upstairs. There were multiple witnesses to this incident. All witnesses gave a similar story to the caller. The officers detained the subject, and he was positively identified by the involved parties.

The subject told the officers that he doesn’t know his social security number or his current address. The officer knew that he was not being truthful about his identity. The officers can not issue a citation to an individual that they are not sure of the person’s identity. The officers transported the subject to Northern Station for identity purposes. The officers checked the subjects backpack and discovered a card with the subject’s true name on it. The officers ran a computer check on the name and discovered that the subject had approximately $100,000 in outstanding warrants. Officers arrested the subject for the outstanding warrants and searched him finding numerous pieces of mail. The officers were able to contact a few of the people who they believed the mail belonged to. The victims had no idea why the subject had their mail, and did not give anyone permission to steal their mail. The subject was booked on the above charges at Northern Station.
Store Burglary Arrest, 4/4/13 2:50 Pm 1300 Block of Webster St.
Officers were flagged down by a citizen who told them that they had just witnessed a private security guard chasing a subject. The officers drove to the area where the incident occurred. The officers were able to find the security guard. The guard directed the officers to an area that he believed the subject just ran . The guard said that the subject had entered the store carrying an empty bag. The guard watched as the subject filled the bag with cleaning items and then walked out without paying for anything. The officers were able to find the subject hiding nearby. The guard identified the male. The subject did in fact have more than $60.00 of stolen goods in his possession. A records check of the male revealed a lengthy arrest record for theft related offenses. The subject was booked at Northern Station.

They checked his backpack and found a pair of bolt cutters, and a “meth pipe”. The window punch and bolt cutters are items commonly used by burglars/auto burglars. The caller (a security guard) said that he saw the subject hanging around a vehicle that had been broken into. The guard watched the subject on surveillance video. The officers located the “boosted” vehicle, and were able to locate

Domestic Violence Information
The San Francisco Police Department’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) is a centralized police investigative unit located at the Hall of Justice- 850 Bryant Street, Room # 500. A staff of inspectors at the SVU reviews 350 to 400 incident reports of domestic violence each month.
The SVU investigates all felony arrest cases involving abuse committed against any person, who is a spouse, former
spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, in a current or former dating relationship, in a current or former engagement, or have a child in common. This includes boyfriend/girlfriend and same sex relationships. The SVU also investigates elder abuse cases (neglect and physical) and stalking cases.
All non-arrest reports are also reviewed by the SVU. The SVU Inspectors telephone every victim in an attempt to advise her/him about follow-up procedures and referrals. A message is left if voice mail is available. It is important to note that attempts are made to contact all victims in every domestic violence, elder abuse and/or stalking case. Likewise, no SFPD domestic violence report is “just filed”. All reports are reviewed; computer checks on alleged suspects for parole/probation violations are completed; victim notifications are conducted and the results of all of the work are logged. The SVU works closely with Victim Services, Adult Protective Services, and Safe Start l. If you are a victim or know someone who is a victim of domestic violence, please contact the SFPD’s Special Victims Unit at 415.553.9227. In an emergency, dial 911. Please be safe and remember that reporting domestic violence doesn’t just assist the victim but the victim’s family as well.

EARTHQUAKE SAFETY TIPS
During the Earthquake: If you are indoors, stay there. Quickly move to a safe location in the room such as under a strong desk, a strong table, or along an interior wall. The goal is to protect you from falling objects and be located near the structural strong points of the room. Avoid taking cover near windows, large mirrors, hanging objects, heavy furniture, heavy appliances or fireplaces. If you are cooking, turn off the stove and take cover.
If you are outdoors, move to an open area where falling objects are unlikely to strike you. Move away from
buildings, power lines and trees.
If you are driving, slow down smoothly and stop on the side of the road. Avoid stopping on or under bridges and
overpasses, or under power lines, trees and large signs. Stay in your car.
After the Earthquake:
Check for injuries if needed, help ensure the safety of people around you.
Check for damage. If your building is badly damaged you should leave it until it has been inspected by a safety
If you smell or hear a gas leak, get everyone outside and open windows and doors. If you can do it safely, turn off
the gas at the meter. Report the leak to the Gas Company and Fire Department. Do not use any electrical
appliances because a tiny spark could ignite the gas.
If the power is out, unplug major appliances to prevent possible damage when the power is turned back on. If you
see sparks, frayed wires, or smell hot insulation turn off electricity at the main fuse box or breaker. If you will have to step in water to turn off the electricity you should call a professional to turn it off for you.
