Concerned by recent reports of prowlers in and around South San Francisco schools, local parents reached out Thursday night to the school board for assurances that more would be done to protect the safety of their children.

In a recent incident, police are looking for a naked man who allegedly walked in a girls' locker room Monday, January 13 at South San Francisco High School.

“We have a right to know when our children are in danger. We have a right to know when there’s an active predator in our community,” a parent told the board according to cbslocal.com.

Some parents asked for the immediate installation of surveillance cameras at the high school. “Cameras can tell you a lot where your eyes aren’t,” said a parent according to the report.

School board members told the tv station that some changes have been made, and promised to continue discussion of the subject.

As I mentioned numerous times before, both the Police and District have known about various serious security issues around the schools since 2008--since the late Superintendent Cohen was in power. Mr. Hogan has been well aware of all the issues, for one, because I have told him repeatedly since he's been here for the last couple years, as has Mr. Sebers, who is in charge of all the student's general welfare. I guess what I am saying is, they have know about all this for a while now, so either the problem is too big for them, or they are too concerned with hiring lawyers to protect their District (and City) and nice paychecks, as they so frequently remind me of such. The Police have a detailed outline as well, as I am a squeaky wheel telling it what's what, and who's who in terms of crime in the City...all falling on deaf ears. Some attorney should do a massive class action suit therein, and get some justice for the parents and citizens of SSF!
