Easy Way to Report BART Crime

Forwarded from the BART website:

Report criminal or suspicious activity with “BART Watch” App

BART Watch is a free mobile app for both iOS and Android that allows you to quickly and discreetly report criminal or suspicious activity directly to BART Police. Use BART Watch to send a text description of what you’re seeing, attach a picture and select from a list of locations and categories to assist BART Police in their response. Reports can be anonymous. The app is also available in Spanish and Chinese.

If you’re in an area without cellular connectivity, your message will be stored and delivered as soon as connectivity returns. BART Watch is designed to send text messages before pictures so that the BART Police can receive reports as quickly as possible.

BART Watch allows you to report the following:

  • Illegally Parked Vehicle
  • Disruptive Behavior
  • Robbery / Theft
  • Unattended Bag or Package
  • Vandalism
  • and more..

However,  for crimes in progress or emergencies, call 911, or program the BART Police Department toll-free number into your mobile phone to call quickly — it’s 877-679-7000.

Landmark Day in Glen Canyon

Forwarded from Evelyn Rose of the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project:

I’m very excited to share that the construction of the concrete footer for the plaque for California Historical Landmark No. 1002 is now being built! This structure will hold the plaque commemorating the first dynamite factory in the United States – Giant Powder Company – that was personally licensed by inventor Alfred Nobel. It is Glen Park’s link to the prestigious Nobel Prizes. You can read more about the site here.

The grand dedication ceremony is being held at the Rec Center on Saturday, April 21, 2018. We’ll begin at 1 p.m. in the auditorium of the Rec Center. The dedication will be performed by the Native Sons of the Golden West around 2 p.m. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy cake and refreshments behind the Rec Center.
