Dear residents and community members,
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the 15th also happened to coincide with National Police Week. I want to thank all the officers at our station for their hard work and please remember those who had fallen.
On Friday, May 18th, the Taraval Station Community Police Advisory Board, San Francisco Safe and San Francisco Police Credit Union hosted an Officer Appreciation Day at Taraval Station. I want to thank everyone for donating their time and hosting a fabulous luncheon to honor the officers and their hard work. We thank you for a great day and your generosity. It is much appreciated.
With less than a week left in May, I am pleased to report that the reported incidents of burglaries and thefts from vehicles are down. The reported incidents of robberies are slightly up from last month, as a couple of convenience stores and a clinic were targeted earlier this month. All three cases have been assigned to the Robbery Detail and they are actively working with our SIT Team and TNT on possible leads.
On August 7th, National Night Out will be taking place throughout the country and each police district will have a venue. It is an annual community-building event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer. The Taraval will have two venues: Minnie & Lowie Ward Recreation Center and Playland at 43rd Avenue. We will have a BBQ, games, resource fairs and entertainment. Please contact the station if you are interested in participating or volunteering at either venue.
As a reminder, you can attend monthly Taraval Police Station Community Meetings every third Tuesday of the month, from 6:00-7:00pm at Taraval Police Station. There, you can hear updates and share any of your concerns. For more information, visit https://www.taraval.org or call (415) 759-3100.
