The UC Berkeley Campus Annual Fire Safety & Security Report

The Annual Fire Safety & Security Report for University of California, Berkeley is offered in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Act and contains fire safety, crime statistics and policies. You may use this document to learn more about the many safety and security services and resources available at UC Berkeley.

Crime Alerts

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.

Tools to Survive Targeted Violence

UCPD officers have all received extensive training on what to do in this situation, but it is equally important that our campus community members think of how they will respond.

If you witness any armed individual on campus at any time, immediately call UCPD to report the emergency 9-1-1 (or 510-642-3333 via cell phone). Use common sense. If escaping from danger is impossible, you should lockdown and prepare to counter the attacker.

Your Alert Channels

UC Berkeley campus and its environs are not immune to crime, but your awareness can reduce the incidence of crime. Stay aware of current crime activity in the best way for you.

Alert Page

On this website, the Crime Alerts page has links to all current Timely Warnings that have been published on Nixle. They are also on our front page.

What do I do if I think I have been robbed?

I have lost something and I think it was stolen from me. Does this happen a lot?

Unfortunately, theft is by far the most common crime on campus property. Learn more about theft prevention. You can reduce the incidence of theft by reporting suspicious persons and adhering to Access Control policies by not holding cardkey protected doors open for unknown people.

Can I contact the police about crime using email, Twitter, or Facebook?

I want to tell the police about some things I see that are suspicious, but I don't want to call 9-1-1. Can I just post on Twitter and tag UCPD_Cal? Or can I send a message via Facebook to the UCPDCal page? How about writing an email? Is it okay just to send an email to police@berkeley.edu?

DO NOT report via Email or Facebook or Twitter

You should never use email or social media to make a report of crime in progress of any sort. We do not accept these kinds of reports. These methods are not monitored by officers or dispatchers with the frequency needed to be safe. Instead, please call or stop by the department at any time day or night. We are always here to help.
