STOP THE VIOLENCE Castro Procession, 
Whistle Distribution and Crime Scene Cleansing

Join The Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence, The Castro Community On Patrol (CCOP), TheTriangle Martial Arts Association (TMAA), recent hate crime survivor Zachary Davenport, and all concerned members and friends of the GLBT community for a peaceful procession, anti-violence material distribution, and crime scene cleansing to STOP THE VIOLENCE.

Along the way we will educate and arm our community against hate crimes by handing out free anti-violence materials including STOP THE VIOLENCE window placards, whistles, and safety information. Hold vigil with us as we stop along the route at the scenes of three recent hate crimes (440 Castro, Pottery Barn, & Church & Market J-Church line) for a blessing and cleansing to purge the violence and bring safety back to our streets.

Meet the Sisters at Harvey Milk Station (Castro & Market) at 9 PM. Safety materials and whistles will be provided. Show your support and help us STOP THE VIOLENCE. Face Book Link

 

ROBBERY PREVENTION TIPS FROM SF-SAFE

 

(08232010)

ROBBERY PREVENTION TIPS

 

There has been a recent spike in street robberies or muggings which has left many San Franciscans on high alert. SAFE encourages everyone to be extra aware, and to take some general precautions when out in public.

 

Some of the items that are commonly stolen are cell phones, MP3 players or iPods, and laptop computers. Per Captain Louis Cassanego, over a one-month period 11% of the robberies in the Ingleside Police District have occurred on MUNI, and 16% had 3 or more suspects.

 

He also offered some basic tips for prevention:

 

  • Do not use your iPod, personal electronics or cell phones on MUNI buses or in public places.
  • Keep your house keys in your pockets, not in your bag.
  • Keep your important identification, cash and credit cards in your pockets, not in your bag.
  • Never leave your items unattended. If you are using your laptop in a café, sit inside away from the door.
  • Be aware of your surroundings, whether waiting for the bus or walking on the street.
  • Move to a closer seating position next to the MUNI driver when possible.
  • Avoid carrying cash. Immediately deposit your pay or check.
  • If you are a victim of a robbery, walk into a public place and call the police.
  • Vehicle descriptions are important, too.
  • Always report the crime immediately.

 

 

Lastly, Captain Cassanego mentioned that robbers are taking cell phones from the victims, not only for its value, but to delay the victim from calling the police. There are many reports where the suspect is "patting down" the victims for their cell phones to ensure the police aren't immediately called.

 

These robberies have also occurred in other parts of the City. You can do your part to prevent crime by being aware and learning important safety tips.
