UCPD and BPD Team Up to Increase Patrols
From the Tribune:
“A UC Berkeley police officer and a Berkeley police officer will each team up in two squad cars to patrol the streets from 10 p.m.-2 a.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. More teams will be out before and after home football games.
Violence, sexual assault, and homicides have taken place on the south side of campus in recent years. Between fall of 2008 and February 2009, a man, who was never caught, sexually assaulted 19 women when he approached them from behind and lifted their skirts. Last month, 21-year-old Nicholas Bailey was found dead in a parking lot across the street from People’s Park. Police are still investigating whether his death was an accident or a slaying.”
