Be Safe for the Holidays
By Capt. Robert Yick
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and had time to spend with family and
December is here and it is one of the busiest shopping times of the year. We recommend that you stay alert when using electronic devices; limit your distractions and be aware of your surroundings.
- Have your keys in hand as you approach your vehicle,
- Park smart: avoid vehicle break-ins by leaving nothing visible in your car,
- Consider moving your vehicle to a different location each time you load packages in the trunk and try to use parking lots with attendants.

Also, the SF Police Department (SFPD) has launched its 2018 Holiday Toy Drive, benefitting children in need. From now until Dec. 14, the SFPD will be accepting donations of new and unwrapped toys at the Taraval Police Station, located at 2345 24th Ave., or at any of our other district police stations and Walgreens locations. Visit the website at http://sanfranciscopolice.org/toydrive for more information.
Our next community meeting will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 18, from 6 to 7 p.m. The meeting will be back at the Taraval Station’s community room. Parking is limited so please try to carpool or get a ride.
As always, if you have any questions please call Taraval Station at (415) 759-3100. We are here to help and assist you any way we can.
Capt. Robert Yick is the commanding officer at the Taraval Police Station.
