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.
  • Sexual assault and rape can happen to people in all contexts, including marriage, dating relationships, friendships, child-parent interactions, employer-attendant relationships and stranger interactions.
  •  If you are the victim of a sexual assault and wish to file a police report do not shower or wash your clothing worn during the assault.
  • 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.
