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 National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). Crime reports are provided on a monthly basis.
NIBRS is an incident-based reporting system used by law enforcement agencies in the United States for collecting and reporting data on crimes. Local, state and federal agencies generate NIBRS data from their records management systems. NIBRS collects data related to 28 crime categories called Group A offenses. There are also 10 Group B offense categories for which only arrest data are collected.

Archived Campus Crime Reports:
The UC Davis Police Department previously reported crimes via the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR). In January 2022, the department completed the process with the California Department of Justice to transition its crime reporting to the newer NIBRS system.
The summary UCR system collected data on eight Part I crimes. In 2021, additional reporting categories were added to the Campus Crimes report from previous reporting.
