Notice Regarding Vandalism on Chanate Property
Published: May 4, 2018
The County of Sonoma is writing to inform the Chanate neighbors about recent vandalism
occurring in unoccupied buildings on the Chanate campus and to ask for your help in notifying
the Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD) of any suspicious activity.

the buildings. The County has expanded 24/7 security surveillance to include both sides of the
Chanate campus and adjoining condominiums and is working with the Santa Rosa Police
Department and the District Attorney to pursue suspects.
Due to the size of the property, the County is asking neighbors to be vigilant and to inform the
