A Message from Chief Blessinger

Dear Ferdinand Residents,


We need your help! 


The Ferdinand Police Department was recently made aware of several instances of vandalism at the 5th Steet and 18th Street Parks.  Although we have had  increased patrols and continue to do so, I would like to ask the patrons of the parks to keep an eye out.  

Please call 911 and report any odd or suspicious activity you notice while enjoying our parks.  You can also email me directly at:

This vandalism causes a great amount of work for Town Employees and subjects them to unnecessary risk.

This week school lets out.  Historically, there has always been an increase of these types of cases during this time and through the summer.  Please remind your children that this behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated as sometimes they do not understand their actions and their impact.


Stay Safe Ranger Nation,


Kerri Blessinger, Chief of Police
