Safety & Security

UC Hastings Law maintains the safety of our campus in partnership with UCSF and Urban Alchemy.

UC Hastings is committed to enhancing and preserving the quality of the learning opportunities and life experiences of each member of our community by actively working in collaboration with UCSF and Urban Alchemy to make our campus a safe place for you to live, work, study and visit. Specifically, UC San Francisco provides security guards to protect the integrity of our campus buildings as well as observe and report, contacting the San Francisco Police Department for anything they observe in and around our buildings or on our extensive security camera system. Urban Alchemy provides sidewalk safety services by engaging with members of the public and forming relationships to ensure our sidewalks remain safe for members of our internal and external community while minimizing reliance on law enforcement.

We also recognize that all members of the campus community share in the responsibility of maintaining our safe environment. To that end, our website provides relevant and practical information to help you prevent and better respond in the event of a crime or public safety emergency.

Need to File a Police Report?

In the event of an emergency, always call 911. If you need to file a police report, and are not involved in an emergency, you should call San Francisco Police Department’s non-emergency line at (415) 553-0123 or visit the SFPD Tenderloin Station at 301 Eddy Street San Francisco, CA 94102 and (415) 345-7300.

Additionally, certain types of crimes can be filed online by using this link. 

Emergency Procedures

What is an Emergency? A 911emergency is any situation in which immediate police, fire, or medical response is required to preserve life or property, such as:

  • a fire
  • a fight
  • a chemical spill
  • someone choking
  • a crime in progress
  • a serious injury or illness
  • a situation involving weapons
  • sounding of an emergency whistle
  • an assault or immediate danger of assault

In every emergency, seconds count. Use 911 only for emergencies. Misuse of 911 may delay response to a legitimate emergency—and it’s against the law. Do not call 911 to report a loud party, missing property, power outages, or a crime no longer in progress and not requiring an immediate response to preserve life or property. Please contact SFPD’s non-emergency line for those types of needs at (415) 553-0123.
