UCPD officers have all received extensive training on what to do in this situation, but it is equally important that our campus community members think of how they will respond.
If you witness any armed individual on campus at any time, immediately call UCPD to report the emergency 9-1-1 (or 510-642-3333 via cell phone). Use common sense. If escaping from danger is impossible, you should lockdown and prepare to counter the attacker.
The UC Berkeley campus is situated in an urban environment, and though campus areas are relatively safe, the campus is not immune to crime. Your best defense is to adopt an attitude of awareness and to take precautions when you must walk alone.
First and foremost, we encourage you to utilize the Night Safety Shuttle and/or BearWALK Nighttime Escort Service, but we know there will be times when you cannot. In those cases, follow these guidelines
On Tuesday, 6/21, UCPD officers participated in the 2016 Special Olympics Torch Run with Berkeley PD. The team has raised $545 to date. Special thanks to our runners and volunteers who helped carry on this time honored tradition. Emeryville PD, led by Chief Jennifer Tejada, passed the torch to UCPD and BPD. We felt so good when we hit Albany, we almost kept going but we decided not to steal Albany PD's thunder. Props to Sean who I hear continued to run the torch with Albany PD.
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.
