The Blossburg Borough Police Department is a part time municipal police agency that provides protection for Blossburg Borough and Hamilton Township. Our department consists of 2 full time officers and two part time officers; providing protection 7 days/week at approximately 128 hours/week of patrol with on call officers during other times. The department operates two 2013 Ford Interceptor Utility police vehicles. During the summer months and special events, the department conducts specialized patrols using its 2 mountain bikes outfitted with police patrol packages.
Blossburg PD also participates in MCSAP (Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program) through the PA State Police's Commercial Vehicle Division. Our Corporal is certified to conduct these safety inspections and place potentially dangerous vehicles out of service.
If you need to speak with an officer for a non-emergency reason, you can contact our office at 570-638-3134. Please leave a message and the duty officer will contact you. This may include such things as returning a 5 day warning card, an on-going investigation, or for general information. If you have an emergency, need to report criminal activity, or need to speak with an officer immediately, contact our communications center by dialing 911 or 570-724-4666. Unlike our office, the communications center is staffed 24 hours a day and will direct your call to the duty officer. Please do not attempt to contact officers on their personal numbers or at their homes. This will cause a time delay as 911 can immediately notify the duty officer to respond via radio.
