The SafeTeam Program (formerly Building Watch) is an application of the neighborhood watch model adapted to a university setting. Each building is a unique “community” with specific concerns and needs. Officers assigned to these buildings work with Building Coordinators, students, staff and faculty to identify problems, and find solutions. The program increases communication between the Police Department and those who regularly work or live on campus property, to facilitate services that are building-specific and appropriate, and to increase resident awareness.

If I've lost something on campus, where can I go to try to find it?
Is there another Lost & Found on campus?
UCPD (University of California Police Department) is the central repository for lost and found on the Berkeley Campus. Buildings throughout campus will sometimes maintain their own collection of non-valuable lost & found items such as books or clothing, but should turn over anything of value to UCPD on a weekly basis.
Is your office or University location relatively safe from burglary or threat? Have an officer from Crime Prevention identify areas in your work environment that may need security improvement. They can show you how to safeguard your work location from unlawful entry and theft.
