SFPD Statement on FBI Investigation of Planned Attack on Pier 39:
The San Francisco Police Department was notified by the FBI about this investigation and we remain in contact with our local, state and federal partners as this case proceeds. During the holiday season we will continue our increased uniformed presence in the Central District shopping corridors and at our City’s attractions. As always, “if you see something, say something.” We encourage the community to contact officers or 9-1-1 to report suspicious activity, for crimes in progress or life threatening emergencies please. For all other incidents, please call the SFPD Non Emergency line at (415) 553-0123.
The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management (SFDEM) encourages people celebrating New Year’s Eve in San Francisco to text the phrase NYESF17 to 888-777 to receive emergency text messages alerts related to New Year’s Eve events in San Francisco.

San Francisco residents, visitors, and businesses can help by remaining vigilant while enjoying New Year’s Eve festivities. These simple tips will help you stay safe:
- If you see something, say something. Call 9-1-1 or talk to a police officer if you see something suspicious.
- Have a plan. It is easy to lose track of people during large events. It is even more difficult when there is an emergency. Designate a meet up spot if you get separated from your group.
- Be aware of your surroundings and take note of emergency exits.
- Have a designated driver or alternative transportation plan if you plan on drinking alcohol.
- All fireworks including “Safe and Sane” are dangerous and illegal in San Francisco. We encourage everyone to choose the safety and observe a public fireworks shows.
- If you have a noise complaint, call the police non-emergency line at (415) 553-0123.
Thank you all for your support in 2017. Have a safe and memorable 2018 New Year’s Celebration!
