In partnership with our community, the Blackstone Police Department strives to provide the highest quality of protection, safety and well being for all of our residents, businesses and visitors. In furtherance of this goal, our Department implements a proactive approach in the prevention, detection and investigation of criminal activity. The most vital tool available to us is the assistance, involvement and interaction of the citizens we have pledged to serve. It is our hope that this webpage may serve as a bridge between the community and the police department, allowing a free exchange of information, ideas, and feedback, in order to create safer neighborhoods and foster public trust in our department.
The Blackstone Police Department is constantly striving to better ourselves and in turn, our community. We take pride in all that we do and hope to provide our community and visitors to our website with as much information as we can. We believe being transparent will help our residents feel that the Blackstone Police Department is working hard 24/7 and will bridge the gap between our agency and our valued citizens.
The Blackstone Police Department currently consists of three marked Ford Explorer Interceptors, two Ford Taurus Interceptors, two unmarked Ford Tauruses and one unmarked Ford Explorer.
The Blackstone Police Department utilizes six police mountain bikes and two all terrain vehicles. The bikes and ATVs are utilized to conduct operations in areas such as the bike path, off-road trails, as well as parks and other public areas.
