Happy 4th of July!

Here are a few reminders for this holiday:

-All fireworks, even those marked "safe and sane," are illegal in Berkeley.

-BPD has extra officers on patrol. If you see them out and about, say "hello." Please do not tie up 911 with fireworks-related calls. If you need to report fireworks call the BPD non-emergency number 510-981-5900.

-The City of Berkeley and surrounding cities have numerous road closures, be sure to recheck road closures before traveling. See the City of Berkeley release for further on road closures in our city 

-You may have noticed our BPD flag patch on social media this month. We created this new patch for July, and it's one of a kind. Our Community Services Bureau will hand out these patches at community events in July. Be sure to grab one before they are gone.

Let's all make sure to celebrate safely.
