The Berkeley Police Department is Hiring

Do you have a strong desire to build positive relationships in a diverse community?  Are you, or someone you know, interested in a rewarding and challenging career in law enforcement?  If you answered yes to both of these questions and have the uncanny ability to maintain your composure when the pressure is on, then you might have what it takes to become a Berkeley Police Officer.

For more information about pursuing job opportunities with the Berkeley Police Department please use the attached links.  The first is our Police Officer Recruit Pamphlet and the second takes you to the City's Human Resources Department where you may apply for Recruit Officer, Reserve Officer, and Lateral Officer positions.

The deadline for entry-level (or Recruit) applications is 5 p.m. on July 25, 2016. Lateral and academy graduate applications are accepted on an open and continuous basis. The examination dates are scheduled during the month of August.
