Our Records and Communications Unit receives and assigns calls for service, and maintains the reports and data that document all of UCPD Berkeley’s field activities. It is also designated as the main Lost & Found office for the campus.

Records Technicians provide daytime presence at our public service counter in the basement of Sproul Hall, manage police report storage and routing, and ensure that other official data and information is properly recorded and secured. Public Safety Dispatchers operate the Computerized Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, answer calls to 911 and coordinate the response of police officers and other public safety personnel in routine and emergency situations

The Records & Communications Unit prepares and distributes reports, data and statistics for a wide range of mandates and purposes including compliance with the Federal Clery Act, the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program, and the State of California Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA).
