emergency lightWe are devastated by the murders of David Breaux, known as the Compassion Guy, and Karim Abou Najm, UC Davis student and Davis Senior High School graduate. Our hearts go out to their grieving families, friends and community members throughout Davis and beyond.

While we are all mourning these senseless tragedies, we know that our community will get through this together. Staff and counselors have been at school sites today to offer assistance as needed. Our DJUSD team also reviewed the District’s safety protocols with students.

Federal agencies, along with our regional law enforcement agencies, are assisting in the investigation of these crimes and are in Davis to provide extra officer patrols around Davis parks and schools.

We urge our community to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to Davis PD at (530) 747-5400 or email. There is also a crime tip line, 530-747-5460, where you can remain anonymous.

In community,

Lea Darrah, President
Betsy Hyder, Vice President
Elizabeth Moon, Trustee
Hiram Jackson, Trustee
Joe DiNunzio, Trustee
Matt Best, Superintendent
