Notifying UCPD of a Missing Student
If you are concerned about the well-being of any residential student or have reason to believe that a student might be missing, you should contact UCPD immediately. UCPD works closely with the Residential Student Service Programs (RSSP), International House, and the Berkeley Student Cooperative housing authorities and will begin its investigation immediately if a resident is suspected to be missing. Students living in any of these residential facilities may designate a contact person to be notified in case the student is determined to be missing. This information is confidential and only authorized campus officials and law enforcement officers in furtherance of a missing person investigation may access it. (For those residential students who are under the age of 18 and not emancipated, their parent or guardian must be notified of the concern.) If any housing entity becomes aware that a residential student is missing, it will promptly notify UCPD, regardless of whether or not the student has a confidential contact person on file.
