SFPD RICHMOND DISTRICT STATION NEWSLETTER
JANUARY 18, 2018
As I’m sure many of you have seen on TV and read in the news, auto break-ins have been on the
rise over the past few years. In an effort to stem this increase in crime, the Officers of Richmond Station have implemented foot and bicycle patrols in the most affected areas. These increased patrols serve two purposes, acting as a visual deterrent to would be thieves and better positioning officers to apprehend suspects.
Across the city, each of the 10 SFPD district stations will now have a plain clothes team of officers dedicated to the reduction of property crimes. Officers assigned to the plain clothes team will be working to identify potential auto burglars and apprehend them before they damage vehicles and take people’s property. These officers will focus on the hardest hit areas, and while you may not see them, they will be watching out for thieves!
Residents of the Richmond District have been clear about the impact auto break-ins are having
on their quality of life, and the Officers of Richmond Station have heard you loud and clear. We
are committed to doing everything we can to take the individuals responsible for these crimes into custody.
