Wonder in a surveillance camera would have provided a picture instantly, rather than having to wait for a sketch?
Studants, and the public, have a right to better security than they are getting. It's only a matter of time before people start suing deep-pocket parties for compensation because of inadequate security. In the case of Foothill, it's the taxpayers' money--so all of us will end up paying for incompetent management/administration of these public spaces.
I thought there was a police station right on the Foothill campus....Looks like they don't do much.
9am on Monday morning?? A lot of students must be in campus, robbers are getting more brash & aggressive.
Wonder - Unfortunately budget issues have prevented the college district from installing surveillance cameras in many public areas on campus. We do have a Security Master Plan that does include the deployment of cameras in a number of public areas.
Carol - The main station of the Foothill - De Anza CCD Police Department is at Foothill, in the Campus Center. I think everyone is aware that the police cannot be in all places at all times. Our officer was on-scene quickly after the crime was reported to our Department.
Aggressive - Yes, this was a very bold crime for the location and time of day. This was the first armed robbery on the Foothill campus in the nine years I have been with the Police Department.
