    My son goes to Chico State and lives near there! This has me very worried for his safety.

    Did the robbers have weapons? What did they steal? I want to talk to my son about this.

    Thank you,

    Mrs. nelson

    What is the campus PD doing to curtail this crime spree? What happened to the previous campus PD Chief – Chief Feeny? Why was he fired? Was he doing a bad job? This new temporary PD chief couldn’t be doing a good job, just look at all the crime you are seeing on campus and in adjacent neighborhoods. The fired PD Chief – Feeny – was a longtime big city PD officer, an expert on big city crime, but he was fired – replaced by a temp. The Orion needs to put the heat on President Hutchinson – she’s not keeping students, faculty, and staff safe – look at all the crime you are seeing!
