"The Box"


"The Box" is defined by UCPD as being several urban blocks around campus. Before 2004, UCPD defined the public area contiguous to campus to include several blocks surrounding the campus. The Clery Act has since refined its definition of contiguous public areas, and now requires that campuses report only crimes that occur on public sidewalks adjacent to university property, and on the street and the sidewalk across the street from campus buildings. The statistics we report as "Public" are in accordance with this Clery Act definition.

The Police Department at University of California, Berkeley, feels strongly that the campus community should be aware of the crime activity in the broader vicinity of this urban campus. Therefore, UCPD offers this set of statistics for the wider territory, which includes the Clery-required areas, for comparison purposes.

UCPD's "timely reports," or "crime alerts" describe reported incidents that occurred in "The Box" whether they're Clery-required or not, and whether or not they are in UCPD's jurisdiction or BPD's.
