An optimistic Davis police collects data on Picnic Day crime

Davis police officials are not yet certain how incident-free Saturday’s Picnic Day was in contrast with its recent history, but the signs are so far good.

The daily arrest log on the Davis Police Department website indicated that at least 30 individuals were taken into custody between Saturday and Sunday. A release from the California Highway Patrol noted an additional five alcohol- and marijuana-related arrests during that time.

That should not be considered a final count though, given that officers from outside jurisdictions — as the West Sacramento Police Department and other agencies supported the public safety effort — may have made arrests that have yet to be calculated.

In 2012, Davis police officials reported that 51 people were arrested, mostly on alcohol-related charges, and that more than 100 people received citations. Both arrests and citations were lower than the year prior.

Lt. Paul Doroshov of the Davis police said Saturday night that the situation was manageable, and that — at the time — it did not appear to resemble some of the more difficult and crime-stricken Picnic Days.

As of Monday, Davis Police Chief Landy Black said his agency is still collecting data regarding arrests and disturbances before concluding how police activity on Saturday compared with previous Picnic Days.

“Subjectively, it felt different,” Black said. “There were much bigger crowds, and I got the impression that things got started earlier and kept at a pretty good clip all day long, but I did have a sense that there was less disorder — there weren’t as many alcohol-fueled disturbances.”
