Recent Increase in Property Crimes
Important Campus Safety Update
Jesuit High School and the neighborhoods surrounding Jesuit have experienced a recent increase in property crimes. The Wilhaggin Del Dayo Neighborhood Association recently shared a special alert about a rash of car burglaries in the area that they have been working with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department to investigate. Similarly, Jesuit has experienced a recent rash of car burglaries. We too are working with the local sheriff’s department and will continue to provide support for any and all reports that are filed and investigations that they are conducting.
In addition, we would like to highlight several other safety measures we have employed prior to this recent rash of property crimes that will help ensure the safety of our community:
- Increased the number of security guards on campus during the school day and continue to employ a guard when extra curricular activities are scheduled to occur on campus
- Requested a greater CHP and Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department presence on campus whenever they are in the area
- Implementing a significant campus security system upgrade as a result of a Federal safety grant that we applied for and received.
Jesuit continues to do everything we can to provide the safest possible environment for our students, families, staff, and all belongings. We ask that you please help in this effort by not leaving anything of value (purses, backpacks, etc.) in plain sight, that you double check to make sure your doors are always locked and windows are not left ajar in your vehicles or campus areas you are using, and that you report any suspicious activity you notice to the Dean’s Office. Dean Theodule and Dean Smith will happily support you in any way that they can.
