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.

Campus Security Authority Training

There are many resources to help Campus Security Authorities understand the Clery Act, why they have been designated as a CSA, and what is required of them as CSAs.

Special Event and Security Assessments

The UCPD Special Events Unit is responsible for approving major events or events requiring security personnel on campus.

Our special events range from athletic events (300 to 60,000 spectators), concerts, dances, benefit events, University and Campus events, VIP visits, and other one-time activities.

Major events for registered students organizations (RSO) and non-departmental personnel are defined in the "Major Events Hosted by Non-Departmental Users" policy at

Special Response Unit (SRU)

The Special Response Unit (SRU) is comprised of sworn officers with a specialized dignitary protection, crowd control and mass arrest skill-set.  SRU has been in existence for over two decades and has provided assistance to fellow UC campuses as well as surrounding agencies.  The members of SRU also participate on the UC system-wide Special Response Team (SRT).

Residential Security Liaison Program

The Residential Security Liaison Program is a volunteer-based program provided by sworn officers of the UC Berkeley Police Department. Officers who volunteer to be Residential Security Liaisons (RSLs) are called upon to work regular shifts at UC Berkeley's residences, including Units I, II, and III and Albany Village. Volunteers are recruited annually, and RSLs are dedicated to a particular location for the duration of their assignment.

Honor Guard

The mere presence of the Honor Guard draws attention and raises the formality of the event.
