While UCPD does not have primary responsibility for responding to most non-University properties (Noncampus), such as fraternities, sororities and some cooperative housing, UCPD does regularly collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to respond to crimes and incidents at these locations and to collate incident data for required statistical reporting under the Clery Act.
Crimes and incidents occurring at non-University properties, even those controlled or owned by officially recognized student organizations, should be reported to the local law enforcement agency, as they have primary responsibility for taking reports and handling calls for service there.
UCPD does have primary responsibility for the following cooperatives
- Cloyne Court
- Rochdale Village
- The Convent
UCPD and the University actively monitor and inquire about police responses to all off-campus locations of this type. UCPD has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Berkeley Police Department signed by both chiefs every year, which allows for either agency to request assistance or assist as needed.
