Welcome to the City of Berkeley Police Department's (BPD) part of the City of Berkeley Website. Please read an important welcome message from BPD Chief Michael K. Meehan. The department has undergone some exciting changes in the last year and we'd like to share those changes with you through our updated website. This is a work in progress and will evolve over time. BPD believes that information that reflects the department should and does change regularly. That is one of the ways in which you can tell if an organization is moving forward.

BPD has added additional layers of information about the members of BPD, the commanders, speciality units and what they do. We have also expanded the web navigation so that you are better able to explore your specific interests. BPD hopes that you find the changes beneficial to your needs and that the information is more accessible to you as community members and/or as visitors of the City of Berkeley. 

This chart (link below) reflects the Organizational make-up, personnel and span of control of the City of Berkeley Police Department. The structure of BPD is divided into four Divisions. These links below will allow you the opportunity to explore the layers of the Berkeley Police Department.
