Taraval Station

Captain’s Message: Taken from Newsletter – May 2018 – Week 1

Firstly, I want to thank everyone who attended our “Coffee with a Cop” and “Dialogue over Dim Sum.” We had great conversation and attendance at both events. I would like to extend a special thanks to Henry’s House of Coffee for their donation of a free cup of coffee to everyone in the community who came. I would also like to thank SFSafe for their donation and Sun Maxim’s for providing us the location. These great events would not have been possible without your generosity and support. Keep an eye out more events like this in the future.

 Secondly, May is already upon us. Our crime stat numbers from April are showing improvement. Burglaries are down and theft from vehicle are also low. Robbery numbers had increased slightly due to the shoplifting incidents where force was used. We are continuing to educate the community about “Park Smart” and encouraging everyone to contact SFSafe to learn more on how to make your home more resistant to burglaries. Keep reading further to see a map on all the incident where robbery, burglary and theft from vehicle occurred. As a reminder the map accurately reflects the information available at the time of preparation. Numbers may or may not change as more information becomes available.

 Traffic Reminder: Taraval Station has been getting some complaints from many different schools in our district regarding traffic safety. When dropping off or picking up your children from schools please be aware of your surroundings. We want to remind all parents to obey all traffic laws and not to double park, make illegal U-Turns, or block the streets. Please be mindful of the crossing guards as they are they to assist you. Please allow yourself more time for drop off and pick and use the designated area provided by your school. This will help keep our children safe with coming and going to school. Officers will be in the area to enforce all traffic laws.

 In closing, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions that impact your neighborhood, please let me know. You can email me directly at Robert.Yick@sfgov.org.
