Dear residents and community members,
On Friday, January 19, 2018, San Francisco SAFE and Taraval Station hosted a press conference to announce the Lunar New Year Safety. San Francisco SAFE Executive Director, Kyra Worthy reported that (years ago) it was common for criminals to intimidate and extort merchants this time of year. Therefore, San Francisco Safe and the department partnered to abate this type of crime. Executive Director Worthy displayed a calendar that included Lunar New Year Safety tips in English and Chinese.
I would especially like to thank San Francisco SAFE Public Safety Coordinator, Wesley Chu for coordinating this event. I would also like to thank Supervisor Katy Tang, Benny Yee and Bill Barnickle for their attendance and support.
If you are a victim, please remain calm and immediately dial 911. Tell the dispatcher what happened and provide the best description possible. Language assistance is always available, and please remember “If you see something, say something”.
