Police Blotter / Nixle
Starting in 2012, the El Cerrito Police Department is now working with Nixle to provide the public with an internet-based information system that assists Police Departments in getting important messages out to the public in real-time. To sign-up with Nixle to receive this information directly to your email or cell phone, complete the online form at the bottom of this page.
The Police Blotter is updated approximately twice per week. The blotter also includes informational releases about real-time public safety emergencies, crime watch, safety tips as well as events sponsored by ECPD.
Crime Map on RAIDS Online
RAIDS Online is an online mapping software that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts El Cerrito citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the El Cerrito Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.
El Cerrito citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area and sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity.
