Safety is a key priority at UCLA. UCLA Transportation coordinates efforts with the UCLA Police Department to provide programs, materials and services focused on safety. This page provides information and links relating to those programs.

You can do your part by becoming aware and by always following safe practices. Keeping yourself safe and your belongings secure does not take a lot of time or effort. Simply learn some basics, be aware of your surroundings and change the behaviors that could mark you as an easy target for crime.
