A few tips we learned from our discussion last night:

-Chief Suhr has a strong belief in community policing in Hayes Valley, Western Addition and Lower Haight

-Crime is down. This is because everyone is working hard together – communities and police and non-profits. Best way to keep our area safe is to provide great activities for youth and to give them hope about their future.

-Work with police to connect with youth that need mentorships and internships. Youth need jobs and skills to get excited about their future in the workforce and in the community as adults.

-What to do when you observe crimes in city parks and public areas?

If you are observing a crime taking place – please call 911.
