Berkeley, California (Thursday, April 13, 2017) -  Do you have a strong desire to build positive relationships in a diverse community?  Are you, or someone you know, interested in a rewarding and challenging career in law enforcement?  If you answered yes to both these questions and have the uncanny ability to maintain your composure when the pressure is on, then you might have what it takes to become a Berkeley Police Officer.

For more information about pursuing job opportunities with the Berkeley Police Department please use the attached links.  The first link takes you to the City's Human Resources Department where you may apply for Police Officer Recruit, and Police Officer Lateral positions and the second takes you to the Department’s Hiring page where additional information is available on minimum qualifications, the hiring, testing, and backgrounding processes. 

The deadline for the Police Officer Recruit position is April 28, 2017 and we are continuously accepting applications for Police Officer Lateral Positions. 

If after visiting our websites you still have questions, you may contact our Personnel and Training Section at (510) 981-5977.
