Incident Reporting

If you are the victim or witness to a crime, you have the responsibility to report it immediately to the police. UCSF community members are encouraged to accurately and promptly report all crimes or suspicious activity to the UCSF Police Department when the victim of a crime elects or is unable to make such a report. Students and employees who report crimes to UCSF PD may aid in averting crimes and in the apprehension of suspects, as well as in allowing UCSF PD to initiate a Timely Warning (Crime Alert) notice and to include the information in the annual statistics disclosure. Most importantly, prompt reporting will assist the Police Department in maintaining a safe and secure campus environment for all.

Confidential Reporting: All incidents reported to UCSF PD are considered confidential except for information required by law to be released. For cases involving sexual assault and with the complainant’s permission, UCSF PD can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing their identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with the complainant’s wish to keep the matter confidential while taking steps to ensure the future safety of the complainant and others.

With such information, UCSF PD can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students and staff, determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the University community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics for the institution as part of UCSF’s Clery Act obligations.
