Security Surveys

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.

Patrol

The Patrol Bureau provides primary and traditional law enforcement services to the Berkeley campus and nearby communities. Using a combination of mobile (car, motorcycle, bicycles, and specialized vehicles) and foot patrol, the Bureau serves an estimated population of 54,000 people, including over 9,000 residents in the campus residential facilities

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.
