Democrat. This time we have a January 28, 1932 report on crime in Davis and the vicinity.


It is amusing to notice that already in 1932 Davis was perceived as a “regional center” of sorts that drew “hundreds of pleasure and joy riders from the nearby large cities . . . .” But, equally of note, this activity did not appear to generate the kinds of crimes of concern in Davis in the recent period (or much crime at all, for that matter).
