The first law enforcement official in Blendon Township was a Justice of the Peace, a veteran of the War of 1812 named Captain Timothy Lee. One of the early pioneers, Alexander McDannald, described Captain Lee like this; "Tall and spare he was, his eyes bored into one like gimlets, his words cut like a knife. But, when he gave that word it was as good as another man's bond." Our officers patrol the streets of Blendon Township, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Some of those streets are paved over the same dirt roads that were once made safe by Captain Lee. Just like the Captain, "Their word is their bond."
-John C. Belford, Chief of Police
