Residents plan to fight crime 

Businesses and residents in the South Beach and Mission Bay neighborhoods are launching a new campaign to combat crime.

The group will meet today at 6 p.m. to discuss strategies to make the area safer, specifically the area bounded by Harrison, Fifth and Berry streets and The Embarcadero.

One of the ideas under consideration is whether to organize a community patrol, modeled after the successful Castro Community on Patrol program. Also, the group wants to send out local crime alerts to merchants and residents.

“I live and work in that area, and many of us recognize it’s unreasonable to expect our city police department to meet all of our community needs and concerns,” Ken Craig, who helped organize the meeting, said in a statement.
