The Berkeley Police Department will give special attention to the residence while the resident is away on vacation or a long weekend. The Police Department will visit the residence several times to check that all is well at the home so the resident's vacation can be enjoyable and carefree. Residents can come to the Police Department and fill out the required a Security Check form or call the non-emergency number 708-449-8224. 

Child Safety Seat Inspection Service

The Berkeley Police Department is happy to offer child car seat inspections to residents free of charge. Child car seats are used in cars and vans to transport children who are too small to sit securely in the seats of the vehicle. One of the Departments’ certified Child Passenger Safety Technician will inspect the child car seat. The Safety Technician will help make sure parents understand how to properly install their child's car seat in their vehicle; showing the parent how to install it, removing safety seats and observing the parent installing it on their own.

There is a sign displayed prominently at the Police Department entrance informing people that the Department offers this service. Residents can set up an appointment for inspection through the Police Department at 708-449-8224.
