Four officers were injured while arresting an auto burglar who swung a 2×4 and threw bottles at the officers.
Officers on the homeless outreach team are making progress on reducing the number of homeless on the streets. The team is building and growing a “No Fly Zone”. It is an area free of encampments, poop, and needles. Neighbors discussed specific issues in their area of the Mission and thanked the Captain for his efforts in helping with some problematic people in the Castro.
