Statistics

UCPD offers this data in the spirit of transparency.

Residence Halls

All security activity in UC residence halls is supervised by the Residential Security Sergeant. 

Each of the high rise buildings have a Security Monitor (SM). In addition, Community Service Officers (student employees of UCPD also known as CSOs) patrol the residence halls during the evening hours.

Resident Assistants provide safety programs for students, especially at the beginning of the year, and each unit is  assigned a UCPD officer (a Residential Security Liaison) for additional coordination and information exchange.

Report Stalking

Stalking

Every case of stalking must be considered as potentially dangerous, and early intervention is critical. UCPD's Threat Management Unit (TMU) takes incidents of stalking seriously and officers have extensive experience coping with stalkers, developing safety plans for targets, and intervening when appropriate. Ask for the TMU detective at (510) 642-6760 when you have questions about steps you can take which may further ensure your safety. Additional resources for making a safety plan are

How to compile CSA statistics

How to Compile Statistics

Fundamentally, Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are responsible for collecting and reporting the incidence of only certain crimes which have occurred in certain areas. A CSA must make a report if they observe an incident, or if it is reported directly to them by any person (includig faculty, staff, student, or non-affiliated person), whether that person was an observer, or a person affected by the crime.

Major Clery Reportable Crimes

These are the definitions of crimes reportable in the UC Berkeley Annual Security Report

Murder and Non-negligent Manslaughter

The willful (non-negligent) killing of one human being by another. NOTE: Deaths caused by negligence, attempts to kill, assaults to kill, suicides, accidental deaths, and justifiable homicides are excluded.

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.” 

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.

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.
