About Public Safety


We are committed to maintaining the safety and quality of life of this community, through the delivery of superior police, fire, and EMS services without prejudice or partiality. We strive to offer the best services as a combined Police and Fire Agency known as PUBLIC SAFETY while maintaining community involvement, protection, and service to residents, businesses and visitors alike.

The Public Safety Department is Berkley's emergency first responder for police and fire service, including dispatch and animal control. Our staff is actively engaged in maintaining Berkley's status as one of the best and safest cities in Michigan. To achieve this goal requires coordination and support from residents as well as the department's staff. 

What is Public Safety?
A Public Safety Officer is both cross-trained as a State Certified Police Officer, and as a State Certified Firefighter, all wrapped into one person. They will handle normal police situations, and then as they come up, Fire scenes. We are also Medical First Responder trained and ready to handle all your needs.
