Detective Superintendent Bernice Waverley is a fictional character in the Australian crime/drama series City Homicide. She is portrayed by Noni Hazlehurst.
Bernice first appeared in the debut episode of City Homicide and has appeared in every episode so far.
It was revealed early on that Bernice has been a cop since she was 18 years old and that she has been in the force for over 30 years. It has also been shown that she has a teenage son, Josh who was murdered in the 2009 season finale. She also appears to be friends with Detective Senior Sergeant Stanley Wolfe and Assistant Commissioner Bill Mulholland.
Recently, Bernice was accused of corruption and was suspended from the police force. She looked desperately to prove she had been set up. The climax of this storyline saw Bernice's son Josh being kidnapped by the man framing her. It was revealed to be the brother of a former police officer who Bernice had a hand in dismissing from the force and who became deeply depressed and committed suicide prior to this. The perpetrator killed Josh the same way that his brother had died, by slashing his wrists. Bernice is reinstated into the police force but the final secene of the season 2 finale shows Stanley in her home consoling her over Josh's murder.
After Stanley Wolfe went on leave, Bernice returned to homicide to take over his position. She originally was not going to be able to but Bill Mulholland arranged it especially for her, however In 2010 Bernice Waverly is promoted to Commander of Crime so Stanley is now back in his original position
In every episode when Bernice has a clipboard or folder, there is always a PDA clipped to it
