About the San Bernardino Police Department

The Patrol Division provides general law enforcement serves around-the-clock. Uniformed police officers and Community Service Officers respond to approximately 1000 calls-for-service every twenty-four hours. Specialized law enforcement services such as Canine Officers, Traffic Officers, and Bicycle Mounted Enforcement (BMET) Officers are part of this division.


The Investigations Division has two bureaus. The Investigations Bureau is made up of several units of detectives. The Specialized Crimes Unit, District Crimes Unit, Robbery, and Burglary Units are all supervised by tenured Sergeants. The entire bureau is led by a Police Lieutenant who is responsible for managing the complex investigative workload of this team. The Special Enforcement Bureau is made of of the Homicide Unit, Narcotics Unit, and the Multiple Enforcement Team (MET). The Special Enforcement Bureau is also managed by a Police Lieutenant.


This division provides all of the support services needed to manage a staff of over 450 employees. The Personnel and Training Unit coordinates all of the San Bernardino Police Department's personnel issues and hosts a variety of departmental training programs. The Communications Center serves as the primary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the City of San Bernardino. All of the Police Department's enforcement records are maintained in the Records Bureau. Financial and payroll services are provided by the department's Financial Services Unit. Automation and Communications equipment are maintained by the Information Technology Division's Public Safety Systems Group which is located at the main police facility.




A.L. Ward is a highly acclaimed experienced Hypnotist, Healer and Instructor with a 51-year track record. His contribution to a massive research project proved that hypnosis corrected 'non-medically responsive' health problems and that a universally consistent pattern of negative emotions caused the physical deficiencies.


He was born in Tarkio, Missouri, on April 14, 1923. He was educated in schools in California, and served with the Navy on the aircraft carrier Intrepid from 1943-1945. On returning home he obtained a commercial pilots license with a flight instructors rating. He joined the San Bernardino California Police Department in 1955 and retired in 1980. Following retirement he earned a lifetime California Community College teaching credential in police science.


A police investigation led him to several years of study with a master hypnotist, and he was one of the first to use this science in police service. He has lectured on hypnosis, regression therapy, and other mind dynamics at schools, colleges, service clubs and private organizations, and has appeared several times on television. In 1996 the National Guild of Hypnotists honored him with the Ormond McGill award for presenter of the year and is Board Certified. In 2003, the International Hypnosis Federation presented him with an Award of Excellence. In 2006, they presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.


He was selected to assist in the Parks Research and Education Project from 1977 through 1980. This research explored the use of hypnosis in documented medical problems that were not responding to orthodox medical procedures. From this research he developed a method of exploring the origin, cause, and the solution of any physical, emotional or spiritual deficiency in a matter of minutes.


His memberships include: The International Hypnosis Federation, The National Guild of Hypnotists, The American Council of Hypnotists Examiners, International Society for Investigative and Forensic Hypnosis, and The Holistic Health Speakers Bureau Canada. He is a charter life member of the International Association for Past-Life Research and Therapies Inc.


He is the author of two books: The Inner Mind Revisited and Heaven: The Road Back Home.  According to The Inner Mind Revisited, it “is a unique book whose direct approach brings thought provoking testimony to the growing evidence that the mind of man is capable of penetrating into the world beyond. It is a significant contribution to the better understanding of hypnosis and the Soul of man. The author prods the mind of the reader into a new spiritual awareness and the certainty that a pattern and purpose in life lies within the inner mind of every individual. The book also lists over forty different medical problems, some determined incurable by the medical profession, which were resolved in his one-hour hypnotic process.”


Heaven, The Road Back Home, “reveals a spiritual expression that is present in everyone regardless of whether or not there is any religious affiliation. This book makes a good effort to prove that there are many orders of other life forms that inhabit the inner/outer worlds. He has shown that contact can be made with these forces (both positive and negative) and to use this knowledge to bring healing and understanding about who we really are and where we come from.”
