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.
The UC Berkeley Private Group has been set up to deliver Crime Alerts to the entire Berkeley community via their berkeley.edu email address. Community members who are not affiliated can still sign up to receive UC Berkeley Clery Timely Warnings. Please refer to our Nixle page.
Fundamentally, Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are responsible for collecting and reporting the incidence of only certain crimes which have occurred in certain areas. A CSA must make a report if they observe an incident, or if it is reported directly to them by any person (includig faculty, staff, student, or non-affiliated person), whether that person was an observer, or a person affected by the crime.
We are committed to working in partnership with our diverse campus community so together we may enhance community trust, reduce the incidence and fear of crime, and promote safety. We pledge to protect individual rights and safeguard property for our students, faculty, staff and guests. We support the University's academic, research, and public service missions with professionalism, integrity and sensitivity.
