Annual Security Report


Sign up for our Crime Alerts delivered via Nixle

UPDATE: April 26, 2016 -- The UC Police Department's continuing goal has been to broaden the communication channels between law enforcement and the campus community. Since last month we are using Nixle to provide a more robust system of communicating about situations that may affect safety on and around the UC Berkeley campus. If you have an official Berkeley email address, you are automatically added to UC Berkeley's Private Group for messages about safety and congestion in campus areas.

Also included are campus security policies, including those related to missing student notifications, alcohol and drug use, sexual assault, crime prevention, and the reporting of crimes.

The Annual Fire Safety Report is available at:
