CAPTAIN’S MESSAGE
Hello Richmond District,

The summer is coming to a close, yet the heat is just getting here, make sure to stay hydrated and safe. Get out and enjoy the amazing weather before fall comes, as I will be doing this weekend.
San Francisco has several large parks and they are waiting for you to enjoy them on this holiday weekend. With the holiday and heat be careful on the roads and as always do not drink alcohol and drive. Drive like the people walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street are your friends or family. Obey all the rules of the road in order to help the SFPD accomplish Vision Zero (zero traffic fatalities).

If you own or ride a bicycle, then this weekend is meant for you. Be sure to read bicycle tips on safebikes.org.

On another note, our thoughts at Richmond Station and the SFPD go out to the families affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Your Captain,
Alexa O’Brien

NEXT COMMUNITY MEETING
The next Community Meeting will be held on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th 2017 at 6:00 PM. The meeting will be held in the Community Room located at Richmond Station– 461 6th Avenue.
