Area Coordinators or other members of BPD offer City of Berkeley community members and business owners resources on many subjects including Personal Safety, Burglary Prevention, Senior Safety, Robbery Prevention, Domestic Violence, Stalking, Vacation Security, Identity Theft and much more.
Safety Presentations - by appointment and as workload permits, Area Coordinator team members will also work with you to do presentations on personal, home or business safety and ways to deter or prevent crime in our community.
Team members can also come to your home or business and conduct a free security assessment using the concepts of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). The team member can provide feedback and recommendations on deterring and reducing the liklihood of becoming a victim of burglary. Please call (510) 981-5806.

We ask that when possible, you call at least five or more days in advance of your departure.
