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.
Summer months in Bakersfield mean hot weather, and hot weather leads people to relax indoors or take vacations. Keep yourself relaxed this summer by making sure you lessen your chances of becoming a victim of auto theft.
Members of the Bakersfield Police Department’s Explorer Post #521 joined more than 3000 other Law Enforcement Explorers from across the United States at the 2016 National Law Enforcement Exploring Conference, which was held in Flagstaff, AZ. Each BPD team competed against nearly 100 other teams from across the United States in various law enforcement scenarios.
