In 2017 in San Francisco's District 2, there were 3,896 reported auto break-ins and just 25 arrests.
Since 2010, there have been dozens of Board of Supervisors hearings and community meetings on property crime. The results are always the same:
The Police blame the District Attorney. The District Attorney blames the Police and the Courts. The Courts blame the Politicians. And the Politicians blame their political enemies.
As your Supervisor, Nick will make sure the Police, the District Attorney, and the Courts do their jobs and rid the streets of the criminal gangs responsible for 80% of San Francisco's auto break-ins. He will force these bureaucracies to adopt criminal justice best practices from around the country, deploy modern technology so law enforcement can work faster and more efficiently, and be more honest with the public and victims about what the city is actually doing to solve and prosecute these crimes.
San Francisco is the only city in the state that has seen this level of auto break-ins and property crime. No more excuses. Let's end this.
