Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)

Our campus has established the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT). The BIT is a multidisciplinary, rapid response team for evaluating incidents of potential or actual violence within the UCSC community. The specific functions of the BIT are to: (1) collect information on the incident, (2) assess the potential for escalation to violence, and (3) advise individuals and university offices on providing a coordinated campus response.

The Team is comprised of the Associate Vice Chancellor of Risk and Safety Services, the Chief of Police, the Director of Counseling and Psychological Services, and the Director of Risk Services.

Report concerns to the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) at bit@ucsc.edu.

Anonymous and secure reports of concern can also be submitted using the link below. 

IMPORTANT NOTE, this BIT Incident Reporting Form is NOT an emergency response system. Online submissions are addressed during normal business hours, Monday - Friday 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Cases that present an immediate threat to self, others or property are considered an emergency and you should call the UC Santa Cruz Police Department at 9-1-1.

All immediate concerns of threat to self, others or property should be reported to University Police at 9-1-1.
