Police and Public Safety Services

Police.jpgThe Hollidaysburg Police Department is located at 401 Blair Street, in the Municipal Building. Comprised of four civilian clerks, 13 school crossing guards, one administrative assistant to the chief of police, and eight full-time police officers, the Department provides 24-hour police service to residents and guests of the Borough.

The mission of the Hollidaysburg Police Department is to assure that Hollidaysburg remains a place of peace. The Department strives to protect through a strong relationship with the community. This relationship is built on fairness, integrity, pride and respect.

Although even one crime is one too many, Hollidaysburg remains one of the safest communities in Blair County. The Department goal is to continue the trend in an inclusive and transparent manner. Since 2008, the Hollidaysburg Police Department has had in-car cameras. In 2019, plans for officer worn cameras will be implemented. Mobile Data Terminals were installed in each police vehicle in 2008. While combatting criminal activity remains top priority, the Department's tools also help them to take a tough stance on traffic enforcement. These efforts have led to very low serious injury crashes over the past few years. With hard work, the Department has earned the AAA Platinum Award year after year. Furthermore, with five schools in the Borough, safety of the pupils is taken seriously by maintaining a close, day-to-day relationship with each of those schools.

Questions about the Department or a non-emergency matter should be directed to the non-emergency police number, 814 695-3711. In an emergency situation, call 911!
