Report Crime

Dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. Reporting crime helps to reduce incidence of crime.

CSA Report Form

We need a response from all Campus Security Authorities (CSA) about criminal incidents occurring in Clery Reportable Areas.

Are you a CSA? You may be one if you have "significant responsibility for student and campus activities.” 

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.

Clery Compliance for University-Sponsored Student Travel, Study Abroad, and Field Study Programs

Under the Clery Act, the university is required to collect and publish statistics on crimes occurring on campus, and on "non-campus property." 

Non-Campus Property is defined in the Act as: Property outside the contiguous border of the campus that is "owned or controlled" by the university

Clery-Reportable Geographic Locations

Offenses must be reported according to their occurrence in the following locations, or geographic categories:

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.

How safe is it here?

Are there crime statistics for the UC Berkeley area that are available to see?

Yes, you can see three years of crime statistics by viewing the UC Berkeley Annual Security Report.
