You probably didn't really notice, but San Francisco streets are actually a little bit safer today.

The cops rounded up a mass of alleged criminals yesterday in a citywide effort to get wanted fugitives behind bars.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that of the 34 people arrested, 11 were on parole, 14 were booked for felony charges, and nine were

booked with misdemeanor warrants.

Police Chief Greg Suhr said that "targeted enforcement such as fugitive apprehension is a key piece of our violence reduction strategy."

If you managed to escape the clutches of the cops this go-round, don't consider yourself lucky just yet. Suhr says he has big plans to conduct many more of these daylong operations to keep "dangerous parolees and wanted fugitives off San Francisco's streets."

You know who you are.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
