BPD WELCOMES NEW TRAFFIC SUBSTATION

Berkeley, California (Monday, August 17, 2009) - The City of Berkeley Police Department (BPD) is pleased to announce the new home of the BPD Traffic Bureau. All BPD Traffic and Parking Bureau operations will now be located at 841 Folger Street (at the corner of Folger and 7th Streets). The former offices at 3140 Martin Luther King were closed effective Friday, August 14, 2009. The new offices at 841 Folger Street are now open for business.

The new facility will provide an enhanced professional environment for BPD employees and for the public, as well as offer more office space, storage, and parking. The new location will still continue to provide the same services as the old substation. Those services include tow hearings, car seat installation, and traffic advice.

All telephone numbers for parking and traffic personnel will remain the same (the main office number is (510) 981-5980).
