According to campus policy, UCPD maintains control of access to all campus facilities, monitors the issuance of keys and administers alarm systems. It is important to understand, however, that the Berkeley campus is generally open to the public. Theft is the most common crime on the Berkeley campus. Over $100,000 worth of University property and equipment is stolen annually from the Berkeley campus. Wallet, purse, laptop and backpack theft make up a large percentage of personal property theft.
If you are a victim of a crime, witness a criminal incident, or if you become aware of a potential threat on campus, you should inform UCPD immediately. Prompt reporting is an integral part of crime prevention and will help the police address the issue quickly, and reduce the risk of further harm.
Additionally, when you make your report, you assist UCPD in maintaining accurate records of the incidence of crime on campus, direct our resources where they will be most effective, and work better to keep the campus safe.
9-1-1 is always the number to dial from any phone in an emergency. From any landline phone on campus property, including a pay phone, 9-1-1 will connect immediately to UCPD emergency assistance and will identify the caller’s location. From a cell phone on or near campus, dial (510) 642-3333 for a direct emergency connection to UCPD dispatch.

Emergency telephones can be identified by a blue light. Freestanding phone systems, in tall dark columns or yellow phone boxes, are topped with a blue light which remains lit at all times. The campus has installed telephone units on the main campus, outlying parking areas, and other off-campus locations. Most elevators are equipped with emergency telephones on the wall of the elevator cab.
