You may have heard or read news about a UC Berkeley employee named Roy Waller who was arrested and charged with a series of rapes that occurred more than a decade ago in several Northern California communities. He is currently in custody in Sacramento. He is an employee in the UC Berkeley Environment, Health and Safety department and is on investigative leave.
Needless to say, this news is shocking. None of the crimes he is alleged to have committed took place on or near campus, but this is nonetheless deeply unsettling.
We are aware that this will have a significant impact on campus, within University Health Services, and on members of our community, and particularly for those already living with trauma.
Our priority is to make sure that students, faculty, and staff have the support they need.
