Crime and Security Reporting
Each UC campus police department has responsibility for gathering crime statistics, identifying reportable crimes and reporting/publishing statistics to Department of Education, the FBI and the public. Statistics are reported in different formats and categories depending upon legal requirements: FBI reports include different crimes from the Clery Act, while the Clery Act requires statistics be reported from a wider geographic area than the FBI (e.g., adjacent public property and student organization properties), and also requires reports of student disciplinary referrals in addition to arrests for drug, alcohol, and weapons offenses.
Further, the Clery Act mandates the collection of information regarding incidents from non-law enforcement "campus security authorities" having "significant responsibility for students or campus activities," while FBI statistics include only crimes reported to the police.
What does the Annual Security Report encompass?
The campus Annual Security Report must include statistics on categories of crime reported to campus Police, Campus Security Authorities (see below), and local police during the calendar year. Statistics for these crimes must be broken down by geographic area: on campus, in or on a non-campus building or property, and on public property adjacent to the campus.
The Annual Security Report must also include statistics on hate crimes, to be reported by category of prejudice. Note that federal regulations prescribe specific definitions of the crimes, Campus Security Authorities, and the three categories of geographic location.
In addition to crime statistics, the Annual Security Report must describe specified campus policies related to campus security. The campus must notify current and prospective students and employees about the availability of the Annual Security Report and provide information on how to request a copy of the report.
Systemwide Annual Report and Campus Clery Reports
The University of California’s Systemwide Annual Report and Crime Statistics report and links to the individual campus Clery reports are located on the right-hand side of this page.
The annual crime report must include statistics on nine kinds of crimes:
- Criminal Homicide, both (a) Murder and Non-negligent Manslaughter and (b) Negligent Manslaughter;
- Sex offenses, both (a) Forcible Sex Offenses and (b) Non-Forcible Sex Offenses;
- Aggravated Assault;
- Motor Vehicle Theft;
- Arrests and Disciplinary Referrals for liquor law violations, drug law violations, and illegal weapons possession;
- Hate Crimes
Amendments to the Clery Act in 2008 expanded hate crimes to include the following:
- Simple Assault
In March 2013, President Obama signed a bill that strengthened the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Included in the bill was the Campus Sexual Violation Elimination Act (Campus SaVE) that amends the Clery Act to include reporting the following effective 2014:
- Dating Violence
- Domestic Violence
Campus Police will ensure that crimes are properly classified. Please refer to the bar on the right side of the page to view the system-wide annual report and crime statistics as well as the various safety programs at each campus.
What about confidentiality?
The crime statistics included in the Annual Security Report do not include any information that would identify the victim or the person accused of committing the crime. Your report to the Clery Act Coordinator should not include personally identifying information.
