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.

If you have been the victim of a violent crime the following resources are available to you:
The Threat Management Unit is the law enforcement component of the Behavior Risk Assessment Team (BRAT).
The Threat Management Unit assists University affiliates in dealing with cases of aberrant behavior. It investigates, assesses, and managers such incidents, as well as investigates all reported cases of domestic violence and stalking.
All security activity in UC residence halls is supervised by the Residential Security Sergeant.
Each of the high rise buildings have a Security Monitor (SM). In addition, Community Service Officers (student employees of UCPD also known as CSOs) patrol the residence halls during the evening hours.
Resident Assistants provide safety programs for students, especially at the beginning of the year, and each unit is assigned a UCPD officer (a Residential Security Liaison) for additional coordination and information exchange.
Every case of stalking must be considered as potentially dangerous, and early intervention is critical. UCPD's Threat Management Unit (TMU) takes incidents of stalking seriously and officers have extensive experience coping with stalkers, developing safety plans for targets, and intervening when appropriate. Ask for the TMU detective at (510) 642-6760 when you have questions about steps you can take which may further ensure your safety. Additional resources for making a safety plan are
It is important that you seek help immediately. The campus has provided a number of ways for you to get assistance, and you can choose the ones with which you feel most comfortable. Any of these offices will be sure to see you get the appropriate care, counseling and advice.
