Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. ~Matthew 10:32-33

PCSO: Spike in 9-1-1 Calls from Sycamore 
Canyon Academy since Illegal Minors Arrived

Since illegal minors were placed into Sycamore Canyon Academy, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received
more emergency calls this year over the same time period last year, with four including assaults on staff.
In 2013, from Aug. 1
9-1-1 hang-ups, one threatening and one subject disturbing. In 2014, for the same time period, there have been 13 
calls, including five assaults on students and staff, one for criminal damage, three 9-1-1 hang-ups, one agency 
assist for a juvenile in crisis, one missing person report, and one for narcotics.
The most recent call Pinal County Sheriff’s Deputies received occurred on Wed., Oct. 8, 2014 at about 11:30 p.m. 
In this case, Deputies responded after receiving a report of a juvenile inmate assaulting a staff member with a 
Once on scene, Deputies learned that at approximately 11:15 p.m., a juvenile 
inmate in the Palo Verde Unit requested the assistance of a Night Watch Staff 
Member in obtaining his inhaler. When the staff member, a 74 year old man,
turned his back to retrieve the inhaler another juvenile inmate approached from 
behind and assaulted the man.
Cristian Dakin, then 13 of Colombia and an inmate at Sycamore since Jul. 30, 2014, 
used a tube sock filled with three bars of soap to strike the back of the victim’s 
head, causing injury. After the first strike, additional staff members assisted to 
restrain Dakin as 9-1-1 was called. 
After learning the timing of events, Deputies interviewed other juvenile inmates, 
including the juvenile who requested his inhaler, regarding their possible involvement. All denied being involved
in the incident and stated there was no pre-meditated plan to launch an assault after the victim turned his back to 
retrieve the inhaler.
st through Oct. 8
th, there were eight calls from the Academy, including two for runaways, four 
After paramedics arrived and began to care for the staff member, Dakin was 
taken to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Oracle Substation for processing. Once 
there, Dakin refused to answer any questions or make any statements without 
a lawyer present.
Deputies booked Dakin into the Pinal County Juvenile Detention Center on 
Aggravated Assault on a School/Corrections Employee and Aggravated 
Assault with a Weapon/Dangerous Instrument.

Sheriff Babeu stated, “Law enforcement was never provided with the profiles or criminal histories of the
unaccompanied juveniles coming from Central America and being placed into our communities. Now, we are 
seeing an increase in violent crimes occurring at Sycamore Canyon Academy, where they were sent. 
Understandably, the residents of Oracle have been emailing and calling my office due to their concern of hearing 
of this increase in violence at the Academy and they have every right to be upset. My office is acutely aware of the 
situation and we will continue to work to ensure the safety of those in Oracle and the surrounding areas.”
