A Word from the Chief

Thank you for visiting the Bloomsburg Police Department’s website. The Town of Bloomsburg has the distinction of being the only incorporated Town in the state of Pennsylvania. The Police Department was established in 1870. I’ve had the opportunity to serve the Bloomsburg community as a Bloomsburg Police Officer since 1994 and was appointed Chief of Police in October 2013. The Bloomsburg Police Department is an accredited police agency whose mission statement is; “To serve the public with integrity and professionalism, and to achieve an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation with all citizens.” It’s my pleasure to lead a team of dedicated law enforcement professionals in service to the community of Bloomsburg. Bloomsburg Police Officers provide a full range of Police services including; vehicle patrols, bike patrols, DUI enforcement patrols, detective unit, crime scene processing and accident reconstruction. The Bloomsburg Police Department administers the Columbia/Montour County DUI enforcement and processing center program. Bloomsburg Police Officers are also part of the Columbia/Montour County SWAT team and the Columbia County Drug Task Force. Bloomsburg Police Officers take great pride in their occupation and the community they serve. Our goal as a Police Department is to make Bloomsburg the safest place to work, live or visit. Roger F.
