pdpatchBerlin Police would like to advise residents that the speed limit on Franklin Ave. in front of Berlin Community School has been lowered to 15 MPH to provide a safer environment for our children. The safety of our children is paramount; there will be zero tolerance for speeding or cell phone use in this area. Police Officers monitoring the area will be policing these activities. Also, the disregard of a stopped school bus when the lights are flashing red is a five point ticket. Your compliance and cooperation will be appreciated.

Forms Useful InformationSberlin-safety-bigafe Transaction Zone 

The Berlin Police Department is proud to announce the designation of a safety zone where citizens can make sales and purchases through sites like Craigslist. 

"The safe transaction zones are designed to help protect our citizens as robberies, thefts and scams become more prevalent with online transaction sites," says Chief Michael DeLorenzo. 

Safe Transaction Zones have been set up in the lobby and surrounding parking lots of the Berlin Police Headquarters at 59 S. White Horse ... 

The announcement comes after a previous investigation where a man was charged in the deaths of a couple whose bodies were found in rural Georgia. They apparently were lured by the suspect through a Craigslist ad with hopes of buying an antique Mustang convertible. The victims, in their 60s, had been shot in the head.
 
Members of the Berlin Police Department say they will not participate in transactions or act as witnesses. "Our employees are not available for legal advice or allowed to settle disputes between parties involved in transactions occurring in our facility," Chief DeLorenzo said. Transactions involving weapons, drugs and/or drug paraphernalia are barred from the zones. 

The lobby of the Berlin Police Department is available 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. 

Anyone using the lobby to complete a transaction is asked to notify the police matron. Residents using the facility during the weekend or after hours are encouraged to use the parking lots which are under video surveillance.
