where a large school, k-8 school resides and curious about the rules of engagement, the protocols and where the lock down calls. did somebody knock or contact the school? what would happen if this was not a saturday morning but monday-friday when children was present? >> thank you for your question, caller. our use of force is policies are guided by our department general order 5.01, and it is online or any other members of the audience like to take a look at it, but it actually lays out and sets forth the policy on what officers have to consider when they use force, including the use of deadly force as in this case, and that include background, that does include the environment, and laid out in the policy so whether it is a school or any other location where there is
pedestrians or people in the background, officers have to take that into consideration and it is laid out in the policy and that is all evaluated as a part of the policy evaluation before this case comes to a final conclusion, that will be evaluated, both by the police department and by the department of police accountability when those cases that qualify for review are evaluated by them as well. thank you for your question.
>> hello. i am a administrator at the (inaudible) international school. (inaudible) this incident took place next to. our immediate concern is we were not notified of a active shooter situation and we are wondering what the rules of engagement or any sort of alerting to the school in cases such as these? school was not in session that day but there was live rounds fired next to a school yard and we want to make sure we are notified so we can lock down the school yard and get kids inside to where it would be safe. >> thank you caller for your
comments and thank you for those comments. you are absolutely right, and definitely in a ideal situation we do work with particularly in the school situation, work with the school administrators to help them to make a decision or they make the decision but we at least give them the information of what is going on so they can make a decision whether or not that school needs to be locked down, and in most cases that is a part of what we do if school is open. very good question and comment and it is something that we are very intentional about to try to mitigate those type of concerns and we have to act swiftly in a situation where somebody is armed and shots appeared to be fired, but that also when time allows and when we have the ability to notify, make notification whether it be a school or any other
occupied location, we do attempt to do that. >> at this time, there are no callers in the queue. reminder, please press star 3 in order to raise your hand to speak for public comment after you have called in. >> i'm curious if there is a link between the bicycle threft and bicycle storage we often see on shotwell on the block between 18th and 19th street and if there is-i know encampment was recently relocated the portion closest to 18th street. will that be relocated? there are still quite a few bikes and storage and tents closer to 19th street and what steps are you taking to keep the bike
thevry and encampments away from school campus? >> well, that is investigation-the bicycle is part of the investigation as mentioned by commander yep. that was one thing through the attention of at least one of the officers. we don't know whether there is a link to the location that you mentioned, but that is being looked into and that will be a part of the discussion in the mission station-next community meeting that acting captain shields discussed just a minute ago. there are many community complaints about bicycle threft in that area-in your area or that area in particular and it is definitely something we have stepped up our deployment on in that particular area because it is of great community concern. >> at this time, there
>> i have a question about the incident that happened the ex inmorning with the fire started. was that individual apprehended later or are charges being filed? thank you. >> the incident the next morning was not related and i'm not sure if that individual is still in custody but if you want to call the mission station, we can give you more information on that particular incident. i believe you are talking about the
arson that occurred where a individual was badly burned and taken to the hospital. i'll try to get a answer before this session is over. whether the person is in custody or not. >> caller, you have been unmuted and you may begin speaking. your two minutes will begin once you start talking. >> hi. this is (inaudible) neighbor and first i like to commend the police officer s and their patience and actions to make our neighborhood as
safe as possible given all the encampments up and down shotwell and around the mission. i patiently watched the video and it was incredible the bravely and patience and professionalism so thank you san francisco police. my question is around why the police were following this individual? was there a call or something for them to follow this individual? i noticed in the video that he was riding one bicycle with another bike next to him and my first thoughts, that was a stolen bike. you see that often in the mission. you see people riding bikes and then they have their hand on another bike. there is also a number of chop shops not only on shotwell but also there is a huge chop shop now behind john ocon
nell high school. i guess the question is, what lead to this pursuit and what are the laws around chop shops in the mission? what tools do the police have to sort of stop and break down and eliminate this criminal activity in the mission? >> thank you caller for your question. i'll just repeat what commander yep-part of his comments. what brought the attention to this particular person was at least one of the officers had been made aware of a crime alert regarding a red stolen bike, and the individual actually was pulling or carrying or pulling a red bike, and that's what drew their attention and that's what the officers tried to investigate whether that was in fact one in
the same bike that was a dimension on the crime alert. in terms of your second question about the issue, we do have a number bikes stolen in the city and a number of bikes stolen from that particular area, and a couple things that we are really encouraging people to register your bike and you can do that through san francisco safe, which is a crime prevention entity, a non profit we work with. often times when we come across bicycles that have been disassembled in what we call chop shops where the parts have been taken off and wheels and other parts have been taken off, we cannot determine whether or not they have been stolen because many have not been reported stolen, and we know the problem is probably bigger then what is reported, because we see these bicycles quite often, but in this particular instance there was a
crime alart because the person with a red bike was stolen from reported it so we all a crime alert for that specific incident and that is is what one officer had been made aware of and that was what was being investigated. >> at this time, there are no callers in the queue. again, to call into the meeting for public comment, please call, 1-415-655-0001. again, the number to call into the meeting is 1-415-655-0001. enter meeting code 24854298818 and password, 8378. you must press star 3 to raise your hand to get in the queue to speak for public comment.
caller, you have been unmuted and you may begin speaking. >> hi. i'm calling to inquiry about future additional patrol in shotwell area. as a prior caller mentioned, there is a (inaudible) school across the street where this incident happened. in addition, there are-it is a residential neighborhood. there is a restaurant there. a couple restaurants. [audio cutting in and out] we are very concerned about the encampments. we are very concerned about chop people participating in
crimial activity stealing bikes and taking them to chop shops, and those individuals stealing bikes having weapons on them and shooting at the police in our neighborhood. so, i like to just request more specific information about the san francisco police and the mission police commitments to the neighborhood to keep our (inaudible) safe. >> thank you caller. there are some significant challenges on shotwell in that general vicinity. we have recently even prior to this incident upped deployment by use of overtime, upped deployment in the area. we will continue to do that. we still need to do more, and we will do that as we are able to, but definitely we have upped deployment just in the last couple weeks and prior to the incident
actually. but we still need to do more. there is a lot of challenges there. you go a couple blocks away and we have challenges also at 24 and mission and mission between 17th and 18th so there is a lot of issues there and unpack but we are part of a bigger solution with other city entities and definitely we will work in partnership with the other city entities. many callers mentioned a lot of the behavior that are happening on the street. the street condition and we believe much of that is fueled by either substance abuse and/or mental illness and we have to work with our collaborative partners to help address that isue as well, so we'll do our part. we will keep working and we know we have to do more and we will attempt to do more and we'll keep working at it but there is challenges there so thank you for the question and we have upped the deployment and when able will up it more
because i don't believe what we have right now is a inf to-at least from the policing standpoint to adequately kraesds address the issue so we will keep trying. thankfully we have been given overtime to do this and will use the overtime smartly and continue to address this for all the issues that relate to policing. >> hi. i'm a resident who lived 20 some years basically right next to this incident, and i want to commend the san francisco police department for incredible patience with this guy shooting at them and it is amazing that he wasn't
actually shot. just incredible. i was really a refreshing change, better then refreshing. on the 400 block a few years ago there was another incident where the guy didn't have a gun, he had a knife and he was shot dead more or less immediately. i would lake to say that i know that that bike was on its way to being disassembled and you can't do anything. just wondering, not only was the red bike reporting but he was writing a stolen share bike and you can't buy those bikes and curious why the police need a complaint? the next day there was a stolen share bike at the tent at 18th and shotwell, and i just walked up the street where they is still a encampment and big pile of bike parts and there is a guy smoking crack and just want-is there no way that any kind of basic laws can be
enforced? kudos for not killing anybody. great. >> thank you caller. that is a really good question in terms of-it is difficult, because some of the bikes that we come across, even though we believe they are stolen like in this case, either of the bikes were reported stolen so it is difficult for us to confen skate property when we don't have probable cause to do so and seize property in that manner. sometimes we find these types of bikes when they have been disassembled abandoned and we can empound them and sometimes we fully assembled bikes and can impound them. we post them online or often imtos they end up back in the hands of their owners but many dont and it is a difficult thing to see people's property taken, which we
believe many are stolen, but again, what i would encourage people to do is report, report, report. if your bike has been stolen, please report it. if not anything else, it helps us get the property back in these type of situations, because we do run them, we do run them against our reports and if the vin number hasn't been obliderated, if is reported at the least we can impound it and get it back and many situations we can make arrests on those incidents so lot of work to be done but we also need people to report when their bikes are stolen. >> at this time, there are no callers in the queue. again, if you are calling into the meeting for public comment, please call 1-415-655-0001 enter meeting code,
24854298818 and password, 8378. you may press star 3 to raise your hand to get in the queue to speak for public comment. you will be prompted when you have been unmuted and it is your turn to speak. >> while we are waiting on the next caller, i would just-a caller asked about the arson. no arrest has been made at this point. we believe that that incident may have been domestic violence related, and that is still under investigation, but there is an arrest warrant pending. we are looking for that person, but we have not arrested that person at this point.
>> i have another question about a committed resource [audio cutting in and out] for increased police presence and you mentioned captain that you would up police presence and that you are using overtime (inaudible) are there specific commitments you can make to the neighbors to keep us safe like committing to (inaudible) over the course of the next month or two. we are pretty rattled by this. we had children that had to hunker down in bath tubs with parents. cars shot at. this is unsettling. i
lived in front of this location. i have to say, it is not that reassuring to hear that presence will be upped without specific commitments. and the second question and i'll let you answer is, i'm curious about whether or not there's common sense partnership with (inaudible) around chop shops and when you see bikes at encampments as you do in the mission and along shotwell that you can make a assumption there is a active chop shop and you can go and investigate, because just saying you can't do anything because the parts are disassembled and can't be identified doesn't really creative in solving the problem. you look at encampment with people doing drugs, smoking crack and working on bike jz you can make a common sense assumption about what is going on there
and i as a resident would request your clear that encampment and clear that chop shop, because there is dangerous crimial activity going on there. is there work being done (inaudible) on a more creative (inaudible) >> yes. caller, let me first say about the commitment with the deployment. we are committed and qu going to keep it going as long as we can because we have to and we need to. in terms of the encampments and chop shops, we do have officers that work these chop shops and fencing operations. again, though, we have to be legal in how we approach this and we have to have probable cause to seize property, even though it is chopped up and in parts and pieces if it isn't reported stolen and somebody is in possession often times we do not have the ability to do
that. we have to be legal how we approach the situation but we do work on those types of incidents. the encampments and chop shops which often times go hands in hand, we just are upped our deployment and it starts this saturday with the unit that works with there homeless and supportive housing and we just added another 8 officers to that deployment. it doesn't sound like a lot, but 8 officers when they are committed to a single purpose can do quite a bit of work and when we work in partnership with the city partners of homelessness and supportive housing we are able to resolve many encampments successfully, including the property on the streets that goes along with it. we have to be consistent in doing that but we have recommitted those officers back to that detail and that will happen this saturday. officers have already been identified and that will start
back up this saturday. we had to cut that when staffing really was depleted, but we are reengaging in the effort and working with city partners. i know that's-not as much as we would like to do in a ideal situation but definitely it can go a long way helping to resolve the encampments when we work in partnership and have a complited unit of officers doing that. i hope that answers your question and thank you for your question and comments.
