What is the Blair Area Crime Stopper's Program?
The Blair Area Crime Stopper's program is a joint venture of the Blair Police Department and Blair area businesses. The goal of this program is to make Blair a safe environment to live in by encouraging the public to help solve crimes in and around their community.
Since text messaging and the Internet have become more popular with today's society, the Blair Police Department has implemented the use of both growing technologies to report a crime.
The person submitting the text will remain anonymous. The message is routed through a system that encrypts cell phone numbers before they get to the Blair Police. This technology also allows the Blair Police Department to reply to the sender without compromising their identity.
