Sergeant Will Escobar, members of his Housing Team in partnership with the Visitacion Valley Beacon Center and the Pacific Leadership Institute sponsored a Ropes Course for Visitacion Valley Youth. Police participation in youth activities is essential to mentorship and creates long lasting friendships. A great time was had by all. Excellent work!

We so far have received over 860 surveys! We want to hear your opinions about policing in the Ingleside District. Please visit to respond to an on-line survey or to download a copy in English, Spanish, or Chinese. You can also pick up a paper copy of the survey at the Ingleside Police Station or City Hall Room 316. The survey is available through July 13th, we are extending the date. This survey is among the many initiatives that the Ingleside District is implementing in accordance with best practices in policing. As you may know, Ingleside was selected by the Department and Police Commission to implement a new model of policing as 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.
