A year and a half ago, the SF Examiner reported a body discovered in Twin Peaks. No one knew, at the time, whether or not the man had died of natural causes. However, local residents feared the worst due to high rates of crime prevalent in the neighborhood. No follow-up reports were filed in the local news concerning the outcome of the man’s death.
In the past few months, however, CrimeMapping.com shows that crime is still high in Corona Heights. Local residents in Hayes Valley recently met with police and arranged a dinner to discuss the increasing crime that is common during the months of November and December.
Recent activity by the Corona Heights Neighborhood Association (CHNA) to promote safety is not obvious in internet searches or CHNA website updates. In 2009, however, several neighborhood organizations banded together to help resolve the problem of fear related to crime and included the CHNA.
The Castro Patrol held a Community Safety Forum to hear the voices of local concerned citizens on safety issues. Overall, final encouragement was given to residents in the neighborhood to participate, listen, and speak out on issues concerning safety. You can still contact the Castro Patrol for volunteer information at info at castropatrol dot org.
