Chief Bernie is an officer of the Fagan Corners Police Department.
Bernie attended Penny's Place and was waiting at the front door until Karen Page opened it. Bernie jokingly noted that Karen opened the door one minute later, and she offered him the coffee on the house. However, Karen got held up with Bernie's order, so Bernie fetched his coffee by himself. Karen snapped in response, so Bernie admitted that she reminded him of his wife which was not a compliment. Bernie also noticed Karen's blood in the eggs and asked her was she okay. Karen assured Bernie that everything is fine and went to replace the order before leaving the diner.
Bernie was informed about the car crash which involved Karen and Kevin Page. As Kevin died in the car, Karen survived the crash, and Bernie informed their father about it. Despite Bernie's protests, Paxton passed through him rushed to Kevin's body, crying over it. Bernie assured Paxton that the Fagan Corners Police Department will keep the fact that Karen was responsible for the car crash in secret.
