Public Law 110-315 states that all Title IV eligible institutions participating in any Title IV program and that maintain on-campus student housing facilities must publish an Annual Fire Safety Report, maintain a fire log, and report fire statistics to the Secretary of Educa- tion. A printed copy can be obtained by contacting EH&S at (510) 642-5995 or can be downloaded at http://ehs.berkeley.edu/fp/328-fire-safety-reports.html
Under the Clery Act, the Berkeley campus must annually distribute statistics on the reported occurrences of the following offenses:
- Aggravated assault
- Sex offenses: forcible (rape, sodomy, rape with a foreign object, and forcible fondling [sexual battery])
- Sex offenses: non-forcible (incest and statutory rape)
- Motor vehicle theft
When a crime or incident is reported to the University Police, an officer takes a report outlining the circumstances of the incident. That report is then forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Bureau (as appropriate), where a police detective reviews it and its evidence (if any).
While UCPD does not have primary responsibility for responding to most non-University properties (Noncampus), such as fraternities, sororities and some cooperative housing, UCPD does regularly collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to respond to crimes and incidents at these locations and to collate incident data for required statistical reporting under the Clery Act.
Statistics published are based on crime reports made by University of California Police Department and incorporate crime statistics received from outside police agencies, including the City of Berkeley Police Department. The Clery Act also mandates that we collect information regarding incidents from “campus security authorities”, or CSAs.
CSAs can include, in addition to campus police officers, non-law enforcement entities such as those with responsibility for controlling access to buildings or facilities and those having "significant responsibility for student or campus activities.”
The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act--known as the Clery Act--is a federal statute codified at 20 U.S.C Section 1092(f) in 1990. This law requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to annually compile and publish the reported instances of criminal activity on their campuses, along with campus safety policies and procedures, and to make a log of all daily police activity and deliver timely warnings of campus threats throughout the year.
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.
