In our desire to be open and accountable to our community, the Berkeley Police Department voluntarily collects and publicly shares demographic stop data.  Collection of data can assist and contribute to the national policing discussion, focus our attention internally on implicit bias and increase trust by making policing in Berkeley more transparent to the community.

On January 26, 2015 the Berkeley Police Department began collecting information for all vehicle (including bicycles) and pedestrian detentions (up to five persons).  This stop data is now available for public viewing on the City of Berkeley's Open Data Portal which can be accessed at The police detention categories on the Open Data Portal are traffic, suspicious vehicles, pedestrian and bicycle stops.  You will also find information on the incident number, date, time, location, and the demographic disposition listed in this data.

This data contains information on police contacts between January 26, 2015 through the present. The Berkeley Police Department will be updating this information approximately every 60 days.
