Welcome to the Blair Police Department's website. This website provides you with a variety of information on how our Department works, its outstanding personnel, and a number of community based programs. We hope that you'll find this information useful in getting to know us better.
It is the mission of the Blair Police Department to strive to enhance the quality of life in our community through vigilant service, unimpeachable integrity and respect of all citizens. Public safety is our first priority as we work from a community-based philosophy of policing.
Our Community Policing philosophy promotes a partnership with our community. It is based on the premise that both police and the citizens must work together to identify, prioritize, and solve community concerns. We must be creative and innovative as we work with neighborhoods to reduce and prevent crime, disorder and fear.
The Blair Police Department consists of 17 sworn officers and four civilian staff. The department is led by Chief of Police, Joseph M. Lager. Blair is a community of approximately 8000 residents and is located 17 miles north of the Omaha metropolitan area.
