UCPD would like to remind the campus community about the following safety tips:
  • Rape and sexual assault are never the fault of the survivor. It is the behavior of the perpetrator that is wrong.
  • 80% of sexual assault and rapes are perpetrated by someone known to the survivor, and on college campuses 90% of survivors know their attacker.
  • Always seek consent. Don't assume you know what the other person wants.  Stop your sexual advances if the other person indicates no interest or if they say "no".  Engaging in any type of sexual activity without the explicit consent of your partner is sexual assault.   If either party is under the influence of alcohol, consent cannot be given.
  • If you have been the victim of a  violent crime the following resources are available to you:
  • Sexual assault is a felony in the state of CA. Sentencing can include up to 10 years in prison, fines, registration as a sex offender and expulsion from the University.
Clery Timely Warnings are released by the University California Police Department when certain crimes are reported on or near campus property, in compliance with federal law. These timely warnings provide information about campus safety situations, and allow campus community members to take precautions for personal safety.
