A message from Chief Erik G. Blake:

Dear Oak Bluffs residents and visitors,


I welcome you to the Oak Bluffs Police Department website!


Here you will find information about our police department, important initiatives and links to services and programs offered by the department and the community. The men and women of the Oak Bluffs Police Department are dedicated to upholding our core values: Service, Professionalism & Integrity.


The department is comprised of sixteen full-time police officers, five special police officers and two civilian staff members. My goal and commitment to the citizens and visitors of Oak Bluffs is to provide quality police services using a community policing/problem solving approach.


Our officers understand that community policing is not derived from a text book, but is rather a mind set and a dedicated belief that without stakeholders and partnerships, we cannot succeed in maintaining the quality of life that all of our citizens and visitors deserve.


Please explore the many options this website offers. I trust that there is valuable information contained herein for you to use.


If you have further questions please stop by the Oak Bluffs Police station located at 2 Oak Bluffs Avenue or contact us at the provided email and phone listings.


I want to thank all of the members of the Oak Bluffs Police Department for their faithful service and unrelenting dedication to policing excellence.




Erik G. Blake

Chief of Police
