Tenderloin patrol, 2/6/10

Saturday February 6th 2010, we the San Francisco Guardian Angels will be patrolling the Tenderloin Dist. today. The San Jose Guardian Angels will be our guest for this patrol, the San Jose chapter leader is Sarge. Everyone has arrived on time and now we are ready to get the patrol started, we begin with prebrief, we are all in uniform, we will be using all the radio's for communication. This patrol will be a little different but basically the same tour, the patrol leader for today is Shadow from San Jose, he will lead team one and J.D. with Sarge will lead team two and now we are ready to head out to the TL.

Shadow marches the teams to 5th & Market, we post up, it is All Clear. Next we march to Turk St. as soon as we hit Turk St. the SFPD sees our patrol, they then called us over to shake our hands and to thank us for being out on the streets. Next we get to the 201 Turk building, we post up, it is All Clear.

Next we march to the Turk-Hyde Mini Park, we check out the park perimeter, it is All Clear. Next we march to Jones St. & Ellis St. (AKA) Cobra's Corner, we post up, there was a drug dealer or two but soon as they seen us they headed down the road, it is now All Clear.

Next we march to O'Farrell St. & Jones St. we post up in the middle of the block, there was some crack smoking but it stop as soon as they seen us, but what caught our attention was a homeless female going through her things, she then pulled out an orange to offer it to an angel, this had touch us in some way that we had never seen before. We could not except it, we just had to stay focus on the people that were yelling at us and calling us all kinds of names until it had calmed down, it is now All Clear.

Next we marched to the 631 The Hamilton building, we post up, by doing this a community leader for the building & neighborhood stopped to talk to us to invited the angels for a community meeting on Friday, we agreed and we will be looking forward for this meeting. As Guardian Angels this is what we do, we will work with you to make it a safe neighborhood, to make it a safe community, and to make it a safe city, and this is why we should work together.

Next we march to Sergeant John Macaulay Park, we check out the park perimeter, it is All Clear. Next we check out the alley-ways, no bad guys here, this will give us some time to take a few photo's, the alleys are All Clear.

Now we had reached Van Ness and it is getting late, Shadow has decided to call it a patrol, we then begin to march down Van Ness to Geary St.

We then make a left to march down Geary St. all the way to 5th & Market St. we post up for a minute to catch our breath. Next we march to the HQ, we get to Mission St. we make a right, march down a bit and there is the HQ. Everyone is in the office to begin debrief, to discuss how the patrol went, and to discuss how everyone did, but one thing did stand out.
