We all hope it never happens, but the campus community must recognize the potential for an active shooter or other active deadly threat to occur. UCPD Berkeley’s highest priorities include the prevention of and preparation for events involving targeted violence. Statistically, the chance for any individual to ever experience such a situation is low, but we ask everyone to be aware of warning signs, to be alert to their surroundings, and to contact the police or reach out to other appropriate resources when a concern exists.
IN AN EMERGENCY, DIAL 911
For more information about UCPD Berkeley’s role in preventing targeted violence events, and for additional options to report threats and behavior of concern on campus (whether to police or non-police resources), please visit our Threat Assessment and Management resource page.
We also encourage you to verify that you are signed up to receive WarnMe Alerts, which is how UCPD Berkeley will quickly share information with the campus community during a crisis.
Review the sections below for information and guidance about how to prepare for and survive an act of targeted violence.
