Crime in Bayview

Bayview experiences one of the highest violent-crime rates among San Francisco's residential neighborhoods. It saw 760 serious violent crimes in 2018, 21 more than South of Market.

Bayview crime rates are 186% higher than the national average, with violent crime 286% above the national average and property crime at 168% above the national average, according to Area Vibes.

However, according to Niche, many people who spend time in the Bayview feel pretty safe there and police, while sometimes slow, typically respond to requests for help.

Earlier today, according to the Chronicle, Mohammed Nuru, the former director of San Francisco Public Works at the center of a federal corruption case, was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery after a report that he brandished a knife at a person Wednesday morning, according to San Francisco police.
