National Night Out 2017
National Night Out is a nation wide program that brings communities together with their local law enforcement officers. SFPD and Mission Station look forward to this annual event. This years event in the Mission District brought a large crowd to Mission Playground. Officers from Mission Station, as well as the Community Engagement Unit were present with hundreds of community members. Local businesses also participated in making this event a success (you can find some pictures of this event on this site, as well as our twitter & facebook page). We look forward to making National Night Out 2018 just as successful as this years.
San Francisco SAFE
"SAFE engages, educates, and empowers San Franciscans to build safer neighborhoods through crime prevention, education, and public safety services that result in stronger, more vibrant and resilient communities."
"San Francisco SAFE, Inc. (Safety Awareness for Everyone) is a community crime prevention and public safety program that works in cooperation with the San Francisco Police Department and other city agencies to help San Franciscans protect themselves from becoming victims. SAFE was created in 1976 as a project of the SFPD." For more information regarding SAFE, please visit their website: https://sfsafe.org/history-mission/
Effective July 1, 2017 the City will be responsible for the maintaining of our street trees and surrounding sidewalks. This means that as property owners you will no longer be responsible for the maintenance of the sidewalk or trees. If you see someone damaging a neighborhood tree, please call and notify 311, or if you feel the tree is being severely damaged call our non emergency line at (415)553-0123. If you would like more information on PROP E and about the street trees contact San Francisco Public Works Bureau of Urban Forestry at (415)554-6700 or sfpublicworks.org/trees.
Mission Police station would like to let the community know that SFPD has a graffiti unit that investigates graffiti in San Francisco. Sgt. Martin Ferreira is the head of this unit which investigates these crimes. Sgt. Ferreira tries to identify the “taggers” that right their monikers on walls, windows, and MUNI buses. We encourage the community to call 311 for clean up, and to file a report online at SF-Police.org (Pictures of the graffiti are a great way to catch the culprits). If you have surveillance cameras that have important footage please contact 415-553-0123 so an officers can come out and document the crime and obtain a copy of the video.
YOUTH AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EVENTS
Our Officers at Mission Station are active in many youth and community engagement activities.
Coffee With a Cop
We encourage community members and/or visitors to this great district to participate in our numerous “Coffee with a Cop” events, held around the district a couple times per month.
Movie Night with Mission Station
Mission Station officers host a Movie Night at Garfield Park for Families. With the success of our first event in 2016, we are planning to repeat this event in 2017.
National Night Out
Mission Station will host this annual event (first Tuesday of August) to give community members the opportunity to meet their local officers and get a more behind the scenes look at police equipment (Police Vehicles, Police Dogs, Etc.).
Our annual Pumpkin Patch has become very popular where Mission Station officers have fun with the community with various children’s games, and of course, a pumpkin patch.
Mission Station Toy Giveaway
This annual event draws hundreds of children throughout our district where they get to enjoy this wonderful holiday event.
*All of these events, as well as new ones, will be advertised on Mission Station’s website, Facebook page, and twitter page.
We welcome any opportunity to interact with local kids in any school in our district. Please contact us to discuss a visit.
LENDING LIBRARY ESTABLISHED
In 2016, Mission Station Officers established a Youth Book Corner inside the clubhouse at Garfield Park. Through the tenacious resourceful work of Mission Station Officers who found and purchased equipment and the generosity of Mr. Alan Beatts, the owner of Borderland Books, and other donors in the community, a youth book corner now stands inside the Garfield Park clubhouse. The books are available to any kid to read at the clubhouse or to take home and enjoy for as long as they like. We can always put donations of kid-centric books to good use in our book corner.
The San Francisco Police Department stands by its commitment to fostering trust and cooperation with all people of our City. We encourage everyone to communicate with San Francisco police officers without fear of inquiry regarding their immigration status. San Francisco has been a sanctuary city under Mayor Lee, as well as under previous mayors, and we will continue to be a sanctuary city moving forward.
