Report Threat

Reporting a threat is a little different from reporting crime. These tips will help you make a clear report.

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:

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

Homeland Security Information

The University Police recommends these protective measures for heightened security.

  • Be aware of your surroundings and report all suspicious persons and activity to UC Police by calling 911. (For example: Conspicuous or unusual behavior; persons taking photographs of buildings or facilities; asking detailed questions about physical security; dressed inappropriately for weather conditions, etc.)
