Daily Calls For Service Log 

The Daily Calls for Service Log is designed to allow the community to see the volume and general nature of police activity that occurs in the City of Berkeley.  The log is a list of calls for service, on-view activities and dispatched police calls for service.  The log is posted each weekday excluding weekends and holidays.  The weekend and holiday logs will generally be posted the following business day.  

The information contained in the log is based upon unverified, preliminary information.  The preliminary incident type may be changed at a later time based upon additional investigation.  Some calls for service information may be removed due to investigative restrictions and victim privacy rights.  If a call fits these criteria you may see the word “confidential” in the address section.  In some cases an address may not appear as locations are based on GPS coordinates and the information may not have transferred to the log.  In some cases an incident number may not be assigned because the call for service did not require an officer response and is merely for informational purposes.

The information in the log should not be used for comparison purposes and the Berkeley Police Department is not responsible for any error or omission.  Any use of the information for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. 

The Daily Calls for Service log is located on the City of Berkeley's Open Data Portal--( https://data.cityofberkeley.info/Public-Safety/Crime-Incidents-Heat-Map/wxte-7icb)
