Ingleside ramps up transit patrols

When it comes to reforms and pilot initiatives, Ingleside Station has been SFPD’s canary in the mine.

In September, Ingleside Station, which has earned praise for its innovative programs, was the first to conduct undercover stings on Muni lines. A month later, the rest of SFPD followed suit.

Now, Capt. David Lazar reports that every Ingleside officer is being trained how to conduct proof of payment inspections aboard Muni, as the station ramps up its anti-crime strategy on local busses. If history is any indication, the rest of the Police Department may follow Ingleside’s lead.
