If you have information on this please call the SHERIFF'S Dept. - if you want ACTION. This includes filing the necessary report - insist that they take your information. "Safe Schools Office is ONLY capable of responding during campus hours (approx 7-3:30pm) to a campus emergency. SJUSD is not in the business of catching predators. That is a public relations nightmare to them.
