Chief Margo Bennett

Thank you for taking the time to review the information on this website for the University of California Police Department, Berkeley. The pages on this site are part of our ongoing effort to inform you of the many safety programs and services we have developed to support our community. You can also find guidelines about the proactive steps anyone can take to help us maintain a safe and secure campus. 

Residential Security Liaison Program

The Residential Security Liaison Program is a volunteer-based program provided by sworn officers of the UC Berkeley Police Department. Officers who volunteer to be Residential Security Liaisons (RSLs) are called upon to work regular shifts at UC Berkeley's residences, including Units I, II, and III and Albany Village. Volunteers are recruited annually, and RSLs are dedicated to a particular location for the duration of their assignment.

Night Safety Tips

The UC Berkeley campus is situated in an urban environment, and though campus areas are relatively safe, the campus is not immune to crime. Your best defense is to adopt an attitude of awareness and to take precautions when you must walk alone.

First and foremost, we encourage you to utilize the Night Safety Shuttle and/or BearWALK Nighttime Escort Service, but we know there will be times when you cannot. In those cases, follow these guidelines

Crime Prevention Strategies and Services

The University of California Police Department at Berkeley employs community policing strategies to prevent crime on and around campus properties. 

A secure environment is made possible through community involvement in crime prevention. The purpose of community crime prevention is simple: to help you recognize your own vulnerability to crime, and reduce your risk by taking preventive action and cooperation with the police.

Bike Licensing & Registration

Per law, bicycles must possess a license (a UCPD sticker affixed to your bicycle).  Additionally, to use some secure bicycle parking areas on campus and at residence halls, you must have a license (UCPD sticker) on your bicycle.

UCPD offers bike licensing services for free. You will need to bring your bicycle to 1 Sproul Hall between 6pm to 9pm, Monday-Friday

Contact UCPD if you have questions.

  • Guidance in reporting an incident/crime

Tools to Survive Targeted Violence

UCPD officers have all recieved extensive training on what to do in this situation, but it is equally important that our campus community members think of how they will respond.

If you witness any armed individual on campus at any time, immediately call UCPD to report the emergency 9-1-1 (or 510-642-3333 via cell phone). Use common sense. If escaping from danger is impossible, you should lockdown and prepare to counter the attacker.
