On behalf of all of us at the Blue Grass Police Department, I would like to personally welcome you to our department's official website. It's our hope that this site will be informative and provide you with greater access and understanding of the functions of the Blue Grass Police Department.

We are always working to update our web page with current information that all members of the community will find helpful and important regarding the functions of the Blue Grass Police. Our web site is just one way of showing you the sense of pride, professionalism, and dedication that the members of this department strive to achieve every day.

It's our belief that while the Blue Grass Police Department’s mission was built upon the foundation of “to serve and protect” the public, we understand it's also our obligation to keep you informed of the various changes occurring within our Department, and the people and issues that affect law enforcement in Iowa.

Due to the nature of the job, police officers must often perform tasks or duties which may be perceived as negative or unpopular. Our officers perform these duties fairly, impartially, honestly, and with a positive attitude. This approach has been rewarded by consistently having one of the lowest overall crime rates in the State as well as being one of the cleanest cities. The efforts of our officers are complemented by the assistance of the citizens of Blue Grass, who are very cooperative and proud of the clean and safe environment which they have come to expect and enjoy.

The members of the Blue Grass Police Department realize that our greatest asset is our personnel and our greatest strength is our partnership with the community. This website is prepared with those sentiments in mind, always working to better serve, and provide safety and service for everyone who lives, works, or visits the City of Blue Grass, Iowa. Your thoughts, comments and observations are not only welcome, but also are very important to us. Thanks for viewing our web page and we look forward to serving you in the future.


Yours in Service
