The Jeanne Clery Act was enacted in the belief that crime awareness can prevent campus victimization.
The law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to prepare, publish, and distribute, by October 1 of each year, campus security policies and crime statistics. These campus security policies and crime statistics must be distributed through appropriate publications or mailings, to all current students and employees, and made available to any applicant for enrollment or employment upon request.
UCPD offers a variety of other services to the public and to students and staff at UC Berkeley, including Livescan fingerprint services for UCB applicants.
Our Records Units can be found at the UCPD Front Counter and will assist you with report requests and is also the central location for campus Lost and Found.
Crime Prevention Unit
The UCPD Crime Prevention Unit (CPU) is primarily responsible for access control, security technologies and outreach.
With specialized training in the crime prevention through environmental design, members of UCPD are responsible for the ongoing security of campus facilities through initial survey, plan review, and management of installation of equipment in new and renovated structures. CPU strives to ensure that state-of-the-art technologies, including modern video, alarm, and access systems are employed in protecting University facilities. Security technologies are identified in the campus design standards and campus policies.
