OVERVIEW and TABLE OF CONTENTS
Safety Counts is the UC Berkeley Annual Security Report. The purpose of the Clery Act is to provide students, families, and employees with accurate, complete, and timely information about campus safety so that they can make informed decisions. The University of California Police Department, Berkeley publishes this annual security report in compliance with the Clery Act, but also offers it as a resource guide, directing the reader to campus safety services and advising on crime prevention strategies.

"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.
See the Reporting Areas Map.
Public property: All public property including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks, and parking facilities that are within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.
For statistics for the several urban blocks surrounding campus, see the table for "The Box."
Click below to see tables showing offenses reported in the last 3 years. Statistics reflect reportable activity on campus property and in particular adjacent locations. UCPD reports for the Clery-required areas of Campus, Housing, Noncampus and Public, but UCPD also reports statistics for an inclusive area we call "The Box," the several urban blocks surrounding the main campus.
* Campus property: (i) Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes, including residence halls; and (ii) Any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the area identified in paragraph (i) of this definition, that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).
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
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.
