Campus Crime Data

The UC Davis Police Department is committed to providing accurate information regarding crimes reported and investigated on the Davis and Sacramento campuses.

As a law enforcement agency, the UC Davis Police Department reports crimes data from its jurisdiction to the U.S. Department of Justice through the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Crime reports are provided on a monthly basis.

The Uniform Crime Reporting program collects crime data across major categories in order to measure crime rates throughout the nation. All crime and demographic categories in these reports, such as age, sex and race, have been established by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Note: Additional reporting categories were added to the Campus Crimes report in 2021 and additional changes are expected for 2022.

Crime Category Definitions:

  • Part I Violent Crimes include four serious offenses that involve force or threat of force: criminal homicide, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.
  • Part I Property Crimes include burglary, larceny-theft (except minor vehicle theft), motor vehicle theft and arson—where the object is the taking of money or property, but there is no force or threat of force against the victims.
  • Part II Offenses are other crime types not already designated in Part I. Law enforcement agencies are only required to report arrest data for Part II crimes. Demographic data is not included.
