Dear Resident, Business and Community Member,

As President of the Berkeley Police Association, and on behalf of our entire membership, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our cause. Our mission is to partner with the community we serve, to give back, and to grow in our roles as public servants by recognizing the vital importance this community plays in our lives collectively.

 In this fast-paced, technologically advanced age, we are striving to create an atmosphere of fairness, quality information, and communication, which will help to build relationships amongst our entire community. One way we feel helps us to reach this goal, is by creating this new, interactive website. In the coming months, we will be adding other advancements to achieve this goal. By engaging in community outreach programs, and supporting all those who align with our philosophies, we feel we can make a positive difference in the lives of people who need this most.

 The Berkeley Police Association consists of 167 sworn officers, whom have taken an oath to maintain law and order for our citizens, and represent the brightest, most educated, and empathetic police force a community could ask for. You can be assured that each and every day, we are working diligently to build a safe and prosperous environment for everyone; especially our children. We are proud of the various community, regional, state and national charities who benefit from our support and involvement. The Berkeley Humane Society, Special Olympics, The Annual MLK Jr. Breakfast Event, and Turkey Basket Giveaway Project to name just a few all fall within our vision of a better world with which to live. Feel free to click here to help us support our benevolent mission, and align yourself with us in this charitable effort. Click here for more information about our charitable work.

 Please take the time to review this site, and make any comments which you feel may help to improve its content. Again, we thank you for your interest and support of the Berkeley Police Association, and hope you and your family stay safe for the coming years.
