Is it an Emergency?
Is this an "imminent threat to life, limb or property"? If it is, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You can also press the red button on any of the Code Blue Phones around campus to reach UCPD.
But there are other reasons to report crime, even if it is not an emergency.
It helps law enforcement...
find and arrest a suspect in a crime
track criminal activity and identify trends in various areas
recover stolen property
reduce the liklihood that others will be victimized
prevent future crimes.
We also encourage you to report a crime that is no longer in progress, or a series of crimes you have observed. If you were a victim of a crime, witnessed a crime, or are aware of the occurrence of crime that is no longer in progress, please contact the police and tell them you'd like to file a police report.
Call UCPD on the non-emergency line (510) 642-6760. You can call with a general question or concern and the on-duty Sergeant can help.
In person, all hours of the day, every day of the year
Visit the police department at 1 Sproul Hall (basement). During business hours an investigator can help you create a thorough report, asking questions to help law enforcement conduct a thorough investigation.
