Beat Maps and Beat Officer List
Given changes in the City over the past two decades, the Berkeley Police Department examined its beat deployment strategy with the help of Matrix Consulting Group. Matrix analyzed population, geography, patrol deployment, staffing levels, officer workload, calls for service, proactive patrol time, response times, crime data, industry standards and best practices, as well as the costs associated with service delivery. The project was completed and the final report was submitted by Matrix Consulting Group.
Based on recommendations from Matrix, a new deployment strategy was developed. On Sunday, January 16th, the Berkeley Police Department switched from an 18 beat system to a 14 beat system.
In many cases this means the regular beat officer assigned to your area may change. Please consult the map to determine which beat your residence or business may be in. You can check the associated beat officer list to verify who your beat officer is.
