SAFETeam Program

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.

Threat Management Unit (TMU)

The Threat Management Unit is the law enforcement component of the Behavior Risk Assessment Team (BRAT).

The Threat Management Unit assists University affiliates in dealing with cases of aberrant behavior. It investigates, assesses, and managers such incidents, as well as investigates all reported cases of domestic violence and stalking.

Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB)

The Criminal Investigations Bureau (CIB) is composed of a Sergeant and five Detectives, well-trained and prepared to handle a full range of criminal investigations. Annually, CIB actively manages more than 500 cases including all reported felonies as well as misdemeanors involving sex crimes, weapons or events of significant violence.

How to Report Crime

In the event of an emergency, call 911.

Dialing 911 from a landline anywhere on campus, or dialing (510) 642-3333 from a cell phone will connect to UCPD's dispatch center as an emergency call.

Describe a suspect

Refer to this checklist when describing a suspicious person or suspect in a crime.

Make a note of anything you can remember about:

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.

Report Crime

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

Crime Mapping

About Incidents Shown

This website allows the public to query a map of selected reported call types. CrimeMapping also offers some useful graphs of the data. The University of California Police Department is pleased to make this resource available to the members of the UC Berkeley community. While we continue to work hard to provide accurate and up-to-date information, the data are preliminary and may change upon investigation.
