The Bakersfield Police Department is committed to achieving excellence in public safety by conducting ourselves with honor, providing selfless service, exhibiting physical and moral courage, and vigilantly safeguarding our community.
The Bakersfield Police Department, a professional, innovative, and impartial agency, partners with our diverse community to prevent crime and enhance the quality of life.
Approximately 23% of all vehicle collisions are caused by distracted driving. We live in a fast-paced, high-tech world and we have the capability to be connected to almost anyone or anything simply by picking up our cell phones. Many of us have come to think of driving time as “wasted” if we’re not doing something in addition to driving! But driving while distracted can cause far more harm than good, even if you’re not the person in the driver’s seat.
Please join us for our annual K-9 Trial, showcasing the skills of our police K-9 teams locally and from across the region. Proceeds benefit the Lauren Small Children's Center. There will be fun for the whole family! See the attached flyer for further details on this event.
