joining us. i'm ama daetz. >> hello there, glad you're with us. our focus is on san francisco and a vehiclesing problem. how to make sure tourists and residents too are safe when they're in the city. the city's economy thrives on tourism, unfortunately so to criminals. tourists make easy targets for car break-ins and easy customers for people trying to make a buck. we're tackling both top sglieks and with phil will help us but let's here from luz pena. >> we heard at the beginning of press conference speaking about 9 high vaccination rates of san francisco. tourists can come to the city and know they are visiting one of the safest cities regarding covid. but are they safe with belongings? are they safe leaving bags in vehicles or even stepping away
for a photo? that's the trust the may have is trying to regain today. >> we've become too familiar with the story, another tourist and another break-in. the latest incident happening to this family from missouri. right across from the park and they are coming back from alcatraz. >> we come back to the car and the back of it was shattered. >> wow! >> i'm so sorry. >> reporter: after getting one of the bags stolen they made up their mind fast. >> this is our first experience and we probably won't come back. >> like copy and peas, jeff another tourist had the same reaction after getting his car broken into in san francisco. >> there's a t-shirt place and there was a police officer there and they told him what happened and he said he didn't have time. never been here and always wanted to come out this way, probably no need to come back. >> reporter: knowing that the word is out, san francisco crime is on the rise and videos are
going viral. the mayor and the chief scott announced there will be more officers in high tourism areas. >> you will see more officers in chinatown and more officers at the palace of fine arts. >> reporter: 26 officers will be deployed on foot and bikes but is it enough? >> how many would you like to see? >> well, we're 400 officers short in terms of where we are supposed to be based on, staffing analysis that the city paid an independent contractor, consultant to do. let's start there and let's build that back up. it's not going to happen overnight. this budget at least gives us the ability not to shrink. >> reporter: right now san francisco has about 1,750 police officers and in the future there would be 400 added to the number. but what about now? where's the accountability when thieves get arrested? we asked the mayor. >> the question is how do we get to a point where, yes, there are consequences but how do we get that person to a better place so
they never feel like they have to commit a crime like that in the first place. currently it is in the hands of the district attorney's office. >> as business owners wait for more police patrol they are left picking up the pieces and the bill. >> reporter: how much in damages. >> we estimated over $100,000 worth of damages. >> reporter: and i spoke to a san francisco police commander who said in many cases we know who the suspects are. something to keep in mind as well as one thing is petty crime and the other is organized crime and they are clabing with other cities as well. in the newsroom i'm luz pena abc 7 news. all right, thank you. there are concerns about a growing outdoor market at fisherman's wharf. vendors selling goods and in some cases alcohol without regulation. melanie has the story. >> reporter: bacon wrapped hot dogs stored in a cardboard box under a shrub.
this is somewhat of what was seen around fisherman's wharf in san francisco. >> no refrigeration for thinking they are selling. alcohol is being served without id checks. >> he is ceo of pier 39. >> during the pandemic it kind of exploded. >> the problem is especially troubling for restaurant owners. simco has five restaurants, two carts and a coffee shop on the pier. >> we are paying all of our taxes and permit fees and licensing fees and we get inspected by the health department or local organizations. and these people come and set up shop and are able to sell without having any of the things that a business is supposed to have. >> reporter: rodney fong is president and ceo of the san francisco chamber of commerce. >> when a illegal vendors come out and pop up right next to the brick and mortar brisz, it is
difficult. >> to create license to vending that can be regulated and fair and healthy and safe. >> reporter: in an e-mail statement the supervisor writes the vendor program brings us into compliance with state law while restoring the city's ability to ensure the highest standards for public health and safety. the supervisor says along with funding for culturally sensitive outreach they've created a model for the rest of the city to follow. abc 7 went to fisherman's wharf on sunday to try and speak to vendors who did not want to speak about. we also went the san francisco department of health. it is aware of the allegations and written more than one citation during the past few months and the department is investing complaints of sales to minors. >> the san francisco department of public health provided vendors on how to keep food safe and reply with current regulations and also given warnings to unpermitted vendors
following enforcement operations. in san francisco i'm melanie woodrow, abc 7 news. >> abc 7 insider phil is here as well. >> you covered san francisco for decades. today's announcement for putting more officers in high-tourist areas, do you see that making a difference? >> we're talking about public safety or public relations. let's look at the public safety as peblth. 26 officers on foot and it's not necessarily going to have a great impact. second of all they'll put ambassadors out there who are invested people and assisting people and giving a presence. what effect it might may make people feel safer for tourists and those thinking of coming. you might be safe walking up and
down fisherman's wharf but if you come back and your car has been broken into, that's a different story. how do the police and merchants say the break-ins occur and gangs operate. >> breaking into a car can take 5 to 7 seconds. a witness said my car was broken in and that's the amount of time police officers have to respond, 5 to 7 seconds and you can can't have police officers in every corner in san francisco. even when they catch them, many officers know who the suspects are they have a list and tell me they go now the of jail, now the. so what's the solution here? >> yeah, that's the challenge. we heard and in the report the tourist thought she was in a nice area, didn't look dangerous but phil is there any such thing as a safe place in san francisco these days? >> that's a really, really good question and one i'm afraid the answer is no. i mean you have relatively safe but even in places like union
square, fisherman's wharf, the financial district, all around the city, and dan, we're not necessarily talking about someone coming up and putting a gun in your face, that's not what we are talking b. but we are seeing people who feel victimized by someone let's say screaming at you or breaking into your car. san francisco spent $8 million last year promoting the city to the world. the question is what is the world seeing? luz, what do people feel and take home with them. >> every tourist technically becomes an ambassador of the city. they go back home and talk about the bridges and the fact they got their car broken into and the fact they are taken a photo and got camera stolen. i know so i want to point this out. today during the press conference, ceo of san francisco travel said pre-covid san francisco welcomed over 25 million visitors who spent over
$10 billion. that's $10 billion san francisco is trying to not lose. >> good point. >> very good point. everyone is trying to hang on to dollars. a lot of people are struggling to get by in san francisco. phil, back to you. one might argue the vendors are just trying to make ends meet. what's the argument against that? >> sort of the question unintended consequences. the governor signed a law that basically decriminalized street vending. the idea was that these were mom and pop-often immigrants coming in and this was a way for them to start businesses and not step on anybody's toes. unintentionally it appears, what i've seen and larried it is a lot more organized and these are actually, organized operations, not mom and pop operations that have moved in and they're not just selling hot dogs, they're selling hats and other things that people are actually paying rent to do the same in stores. it will be a real interesting
thing to see what happens on the wharf. they are very upset and can't outlaw and will make it permitted but, you know, the bottom line is they'll get a civil citation if they're found to be in violation and that is not even a slap on the wrist. it's a parking ticket. >> the city has a lot of complex problems to deal with. phil, and luz thank you. from one side of the bay to the other. it is a big day tomorrow when it comes to the future of the oakland as, will it stay the oakland as. the heat is easing and fire risk diminishing, i'll have the accuweather forecast coming up in a moment. still ahead, meet the man robbed at gun point while washing his car. he's taking action to make sure it doesn't

pushing out over san francisco. forecast features back to usual, fog and patchy morning drizzle during overnight and going into tomorrow. heat continues to ease up in the inland areas next few days and we'll have only minor temperature fluctuations going into the weekend. increasing low clouds and fog mainly near near the bay. 79 in san jose tomorrow in loscados and mainly mid to upper 70s on the coast and 60 in pacifica and 62 in half moon bay and downtown san francisco a high of 66 and 66 in south san francisco, 82 in petaluma and 82 over at napa. east bay highs oakland topping out at about 27 and 75 at castro valley. inland east bay highs mainly in the upper 80s to low 90s over at
pittsburgh, antioch and brentwood. accuweather 7-day forecast and as you can see, the cooling -- gradual cooling continue through mid-week with thursday being -- expecting to be the coolest days with highs inland in the upper 80s and 70 around the bay shoreline and warms up a little bit on friday up to 90, maybe 92 on saturday. notice not much change from day-to-day getting into early next week. maybe a little more cooler with temperatures dropping off again. ama. >> thank you, spencer. right after abc 7 news at 6:00, you can catch the latest guest host of jeopardy, robin roberts is hosting all week. >> here is the guest host of jeopardy, robin roberts. >> alex made it look a lot easier. it is not easy. >> you can catch robin all week long on jeopardy, i'm sure she made it look easy as well. at 7:00 p.m. right here on abc
