Continue to strengthen Public Safety
By Mayor London Breed
The frequent auto burglaries in San Francisco are not victimless crimes, they have real financial and emotional consequences for the victims and we’re continuing to work to hold people who commit these crimes accountable.
These incidents hurt our residents, especially working families who do not have the time or money to deal with the effects, as well as visitors to our City whose experiences are too often tarnished after an otherwise positive experience. We’ve made progress in recent months since announcing our Tourism Deployment Plan, but there’s still more work to do to ensure that everyone feels safe on our streets.
I want to be very clear to the organized groups who are responsible for the vast majority of these crimes that we are committing the resources and the manpower to hold them accountable.
That’s why I announced a privately funded cash reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals involved in organized criminal fencing operations known to fuel vehicle smash-and-grabs. This initiative builds on our recent expansion of community-based ambassadors and police patrols to high-traffic businesses, tourist, and retail destinations, which has resulted in a 37 percent drop in citywide auto burglaries. Individuals that provide accurate and transparent information will be compensated up to $100,000 pending the arrest and conviction of individuals involved.
Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD Tip Line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with “SFPD.” Although callers may remain anonymous, eligibility for rewards for information leading to arrests and convictions of offenders requires individuals to identify themselves to SFPD investigators.
And to further build on our continuing public safety measures as San Francisco reopens, we have also initiated steps to work with the Sheriff and Adult Probation Department to reform our City’s Electronic Monitoring Program.
This public safety tool needs reforms to achieve its original deterrence function, while also serving as an alternative to incarceration.
Electronic Monitoring is essential but it is failing as a tool for deterrence then it is failing those we are trying to keep out of jail and we are failing the public. It is alarming to us that close to one-third of the active clients on electronic monitoring failed to comply with the terms of their electronic monitoring. Some were even charged with a variety of horrific violent crimes.
That’s also why I have requested these departments to develop and present recommendation regarding how to best strengthen the electronic monitoring program in San Francisco so that its original deterrence function can be fulfilled. We must reform and strengthen this important public safety tool that can keep people out of jail, and prevent future contact with the criminal justice system
