You may recall that the perps who are allegedly responsible for the recent armed-robbery unpleasantness in Bernal Heights were captured because a quick-thinking cop used his personal iPad to track a stolen iPhone… and the baddies who took it.
You may also recall that shortly after the thugs were arrested, Neighbor Regina organized a donation fund for grateful Bernal residents to contribute to the purchase of a few iPads for use by officers from the SFPD’s Ingleside Station.
The fund was a big success, and three new iPads were recently procured and delivered to Ingleside. Neighbor Regina tells it:
Not only did we exceed the fundraising goal for one iPad, but Neighbor Cynthia (an Apple employee) offered us her discount, so we were able to purchase three iPads for the Ingleside department.
The iPads have now been delivered to Captain Timothy Falvey who is thrilled to receive them. We met an officer who rides his police bike on Cortland — he will be using one. We met a SWAT member who says he will use one (Google Maps has done wonders for his team). Captain Falvey even asked to keep the Apple shopping bag the devices came in for use during decoy operations.
Thanks to some die-cut stickers contributed by Ellaprints on Precita, all three iPads will also sport the glamorous Bernalwood logo while in action.
Way to go, neighbors!
Indeed. Nice work, people.
