the city has been seeing abc 7 news reporter. zach fuentes was there when the mayor made the announcement violent crime is on the rise in san jose. according to mayor sam. licardo his office pointing to least data showing that 2021 saw a 10.4% increase in violent crime felony assaults sexual assaults and robberies this year. they say is on track to be similar and his press conference today. licardo spoke about action. the city has taken over the years including hiring more than 200 san jose police officers launching programs for young adults and expanding mental health response units, but still the crime increased continued legardo says that factors have been linked to the crime increase one is the rising rate of pretrial releases many felon arrestees who have otherwise would otherwise have been detained. licardo says the second factor is what he calls a persistent scourge of untreated meth addiction among many of those arrested overall the proposal aims to expand drug treatment for arrestes support small
4:01 pm
businesses hit by robberies and focus on what he calls a revolving door at the jail, san jose police department looked at data over a 14 month period ident. 30 arrestees had been arrested a minimum of 10 times over that period of 14 months one individual. 19 times we do need all the help we can get whether it's physical bodies of patrol cars out there making a difference or changing the law or changing legislation. what is occurring right now is not working and that needs to change though. the city does control the san jose police department much of what happens to someone after an arrest falls on the county. quartz licardo says his proposal can bring different jurisdictions and stakeholders together. obviously a lot of this work is work that requires partnership and collaboration before anything can happen. the mayor says the proposal still needs to be implemented through the city council a process. he says will take several weeks in san jose zach fuentes abc 7 news. in san francisco crime staffing shortages and police response
4:02 pm
times are all getting worse. so what will it take for the city to change? this is going to take years to. correct this if we even can a grim outlook from the president of the city's police officers association i-team reporter stephanie. sierra has the story. was parked right at the corner call it the price of parking in san francisco right over there tracy mcrae was on her way to visit a family member in the er. she parked her car at the corner of franklin and post locked up and left nothing in sight but a mere 30 minutes later. oh her windows smashed. i knew instantly it was broke just you know shattered underscoring that it can happen to any of us mcrae is a san francisco police lieutenant who's fed up? you tired of of it a group entire of it? the question is what can we do about it? there is nothing you can do.
4:03 pm
and it's really kind of the luck of the draw. that's what it feels like and many unlucky so far this year in 2022. there's been a 32% increase in car break-ins where property was stolen inside and a 29% spike in larceny theft the crime is increasing frolicious. white is the security service manager for sf safe a crime prevention and education program that works with sfpd facing a heightened demand for services why it says he's noticing these groups of criminals are targeting one neighborhood at a time burglars that are teamed up when they arrested then you may be able to clear. maybe a hundred to 120 burglaries because it was those two guys that were doing it a dose of reality on a growing problem macrae is the acting president of the san francisco police officers association. we asked her realistically will this crime cycle ever end it is going to stay the same. that's that's being real. that's giving you the honest answer chief scott was not
4:04 pm
available to comment specifically about these issues but has expressed concern in the past about staffing shortages and slow response times. the department is challenged with more crime with fewer resources. we're down a significant amount of officers. probably 500 or more the luxury of having bike patrol of having foot beats and corridors, we don't have that luxury the staffing shortage in turn impacting 911 response times data released from sfpd shows in february police did not meet the response time standard for priority a calls which are life-threatening emergencies. average responding in nine minutes instead of eight minutes, but mcrae says the time for when an officer gets a call to arriving on scene should be under three minutes. the delayed lag time having a domino effect this be worried response times for priority b calls, which usually mean a crime has just occurred increased seven minutes and priority sea calls. is no present danger increased
4:05 pm
27 minutes from last year a crisis that mcrae believes the city will continue to struggle with for at least up to a decade next week the san francisco board of supervisors will be holding a committee hearing to discuss the current state of the department staffing shortage. amid this rise in crime. we'll be following it. for the i-team stephanie sierra abc 7 news and joining me now to talk more about this is abc 7 news insider phil material 32% increase in car breaks up 29% in larceny theft these numbers are staggering. what is driving this? well a number of things are driving, but there's even even scarier numbers the number of guns on the streets now is through the charts off the charts the number of violent use of guns increasing incredibly guns are cheap they're plant. and people are using them easier and easier than before. so what's driving these things a number of different things we can talk about the root causes which is one groups of solution. they say let's get down in the
4:06 pm
subject of poverty. let's get on education. let's get on racism. let's try to make it so people don't take that path, but once they're on that path the question is what do you do about it? and what we've decided in california is to do less because it's better. that's it. the feeling remember it goes in pendulum. in the 1990s when we had high crime we passed three strikes. you're out. we had gun enhancements ier jail 10 years too many people were being locked up we decided we needed to reform it. we didn't want to be that kind of society. the result is between covid that and a backup of the judicial system. we've gone from 178,000 prisoners to 90,000 statewide. we fewer and fewer people are going to jail they're going for jail last time they're back out on the streets. they now have guns and they have opportunities to hit these property crimes and we're seeing it just sort of snowball again. so it's going to go back up again. yeah, so is that the reason that you hear some people say as they did in stephanie's piece that this is going to take years to resolve if it can be resolved.
4:07 pm
you know, there's first question is you have to decide if you're going to resolve it and how everybody says we need to resolve it or make it better, but how for example it's some people say well let's let's just start locking everybody up again. well, that's not necessarily going to pass. the other side says no, we're not going to and that includes the state legislature. just today they're up in sacramento. there was a bill to make human trafficking a serious felony. it's not right now. the idea was to toughen the laws that's putting kids out on the street for sex. okay? no, they didn't want to hear it. they don't want to hear about making creasing drug laws for fentanyl. they don't want to hear it right now. everything is just sort of stopped on first base. they don't even want to debate it. what it's going to take is the public to say no we want to change and i am feeling that it's going to love is going to hinge on right here in san francisco the bay area the recall election of san francisco district attorney chester boudin a reform minded progressive district attorney who is facing a big crime problem that was going on before he got into office and will likely be there after he leaves but if he has
4:08 pm
turned out of office, that could be a bell change. well, i mean from the citizens, i think the message is clear figure out a way to stop this but is it as simple as staffing shortages and trying to be no that compounded you think staffing shortage is now it's in stephanie's piece about being understaffed. that's just the start. we have hundreds of police officers around the bay area on the verge of retirement. they're going to retire out. either that or they're moving out to the suburbs. away, from what we're getting in the bay area the incoming academies their graduating 150 now, they're graduating 12 and 20. i mean larry you doesn't add up and and people say what do you want to do about it? i said, let me ask you would you recommend anybody becoming a police officer? would you tell your kids to become a police officer today? no, okay, and police officers are saying the same things to their kids and when you have that you're not going to have new people coming in. well an ongoing problem, obviously you're staying on top
4:09 pm
of it. we'll see if you know government officials can get something done here. thank you, phil. meantime san jose police are searching for the driver who hit and killed two women in a crosswalk last night. these are photos of the suspect vehicle a newer model red four-door pickup the quality of the photos aren't good but investigators. hope someone can identify the vehicle the incident happened just before 6:30 at ocala avenue and oakton court on the city's east side police. say the women were in the crosswalk when they were hit people living in the area were not surprised by the incident say many drivers ignore the flashing lights at the crosswalks. this part this this side is very dangerous. the people they don't stop even if you push light they don't stop. they still driving like crazy. so maybe maybe they put the light. the light you know the people maybe can respect because this this small lies they don't respect.
4:10 pm

of that with covid and everything, but right i have to admit that was me for a long time. no, don't do it. yeah. yeah. we really have you know, we thought the whole thing right during the pandemic, but i think in the future the employer that can probably best attract talent and keep talent right? probably the ones who can make figure out how to give that work live balance to employees. yeah, and it may not be a shorter work week or whatever but just more flexibility. yeah and and the willingness to work with the with the employees to try. make you know their lives good. yeah. all right, some of us have a hard time leaving work at the office. we're just talking about that especially since now the office is at home for a lot of people that's led to an increase in so-called worcations taxing or taking your work with you on the road. airbnb says 20% of it's more recent worldwide bookings are for stays of a month or longer that implies people are going away for extended stays and often taking their work with them. i mean that is not a bad thing
4:42 pm
if you can work from a lovely location somewhere at an airbnb maybe ideally located on a nice beach you could do your show from there, right? we have the technology to make it happen. i actually know a lot of people that took off for hawaii and we're renting homes or airbnbs whatever for months and months at a time not thinking that it was going to be. one year then into year two and you know only recently have come back but a lot of people took advantage of it and they did just fine. i've heard of people who specifically a family who went to hawaii and then thought they'd come. but yre yes, and we can do it remotely and right. yeah, some people enjoy the idea of a change of scenery. i mean, it might actually allow them to be a little more creative. yeah, i think that's good. yeah, so you're saying we will be more productive if you worked at the beach. yeah what i'm hearing. i think that's what i heard. that is what umbrella drinks

i always tell my kids do not leave food in the car. well why i mean it's in a bag no, don't leave food in the car, especially with the bears around yosemite. i mean you hear about it all the time. yeah, i mean it's actually bad for the bears there. they should be more scared of us because what happens is they get so used to humans and so get used to get so used to the food that we have there. they lose their ability to live the way they're meant to live and in forage and and hunt for food or gather food the way they're supposed to and so it we got to figure out the situation. and imagine if that mama bear couldn't have gotten now in the board cubs. i know she got out everybody's fine. oh, she's fine. she's good. everybody's good. let's not worry about it. all right, that's it for the ford four. everybody's healthy. everybody's fine. we'

uc berkeley's famous falcon
4:47 pm
keeps getting more interesting last week. yeah. i'm just a major plot twist here last week. we found out her long. mate, grinnell probably got hit and killed by a car was sad. it was but now a new male has turned up. we've been following the saga for weeks and this morning on abc 7 at 7. we received an update from a cal falcons expert in ornithologist, sean peterson. um, you know, grinnell was killed a week ago now and all of a sudden this new mail just showed up and appears to have really kind of gung-ho jumped in
4:48 pm
there taking up helping out annie with this this clutch of eggs, so it's been a real amazing week of really unexpected events. so we're on video right now of this male falcon coming into the nest and bringing what appears to be annie some food, so how did this male falcon know that it was time to come into? andy's life that's a great question. um, we think he's been around for a few days or weeks kind of on the outskirts keeping it. and annie is just i guess enough of a catee bng h food sittingnope a male falcon wld has laid her third egg. we see from the camera dr. peterson. so what does this mean? when is it it is it too soon to think about the matching, you
4:49 pm
know, we're really hopeful. um, all the signs are pointing that direction. been such a weird year that we don't want to guarantee anything, but you know, they're both treating the eggs like they're viable and will hatch they're they're incubating them very regularly. and so we don't have any reason to think that they won't hatch if they do we're expecting them around may 6th is the expected half day. and tell me about how rare that is because there was concern right that after grinnell died that the eggs would not be viable. yeah, it's very rare. um the vast majority of the time when a male or one of the the pair dies, the nest is abandoned. and what we saw here was something that really just doesn't happen very much where a mail comes in immediately and then not only takes over the territory, but then helps care for the eggs that are already
4:50 pm
there. so this is really kind of a very rare occurrence. it's only been document a few times that we know. i just want to say they better check to see if this new birds dna is on grinnell. i feel bad. i feel bad for grinnell and i'd like to ask andy, what did she know? and when did she know it? that's all because suddenly the newuyussuddenly appears exactly. i read agatha christie. i know. okay. all right. want to see something you haven't seen before or better yet something that hasn't been. by humans before you may want to head to the monterey bay aquarium checks this out because this amazing sea animal is so new to science. it doesn't have a name. what is this? well, it's part of the deep sea exhibit of creatur. that live below 600 feet all the way to the sea floor these animals live in total darkness, right the farther down you go so they emit light from their bodies. so that makes for some spectacular sights.
4:51 pm
the exhibit also looks at the importance of the deep sea we don't know what is down there because we haven't discovered it and we haven't researched. enough. there may be cures for cancer. there may be cures for parkinson's we don't even know yet. what is there? scientists went into the depths of the ocean to do research while the monterey bay aquarium was closed during the covid shutdown. they look spectacular. ingope they tre nelsepends ot yousee i wl bin like, right? that's right, kristen and larry if you like cool. weather and you don't mind the trend that we have right now. you're going to love the weekend. let me show you live doppler 7. we have some high clouds passing through the bay area right now. and as you take a look at the temperatures, they're dropping even more inland areas that were warm today are going to be in the upper 70s to the low 80s. so you'll feel the cool down upper 50s to low 60s coast side 70s right around the bay it gets
