The Police Commission will be hosting their meeting in the Ingleside District on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. at the Paul Revere College Preparatory School, 555 Tompkins Street. I will be presenting on the Ingleside District and updating the Police Commission on the Phase I Implementation Plan.
We so far have received over 860 surveys! We want to hear your opinions about policing in the Ingleside District. Please visit http://www.sfgov.org/police/ingleside to respond to an on-line survey or to download a copy in English
This survey is among the many initiatives that the Ingleside District is implementing in accordance with the best practices in policing. As you may know, Ingleside was selected by the Department and the Police Commission to implement a new model of policing as was recommended by nationally recognized police consultants. These community based recommendations are excellent and get to the core of community policing and community based problem solving. I look forward to your participation in this survey and future efforts to implement innovative ideas in community policing.

Officer Plantinga and Officer Obot were on patrol in the Sunnydale public housing area when they spotted a moving vehicle that failed to stop at a stop sign. Officer Plantinga effected a traffic enforcement stop of the vehicle. Upon contact with the driver, Officer Plantinga detected a strong odor of an illegal narcotic emanating from inside of the vehicle, which was occupied by eight individuals.

One occupant suddenly bolted from the vehicle, and Officer Obot gave chase on foot.
Unfortunately, after a lengthy foot pursuit and under the cover of darkness, the suspect managed to evade the officer. With the remaining subjects detained, Officer Plantinga searched the vehicle.
