    Terrible. Police which don't do their jobs, and when they do, they screw it up. No one in city hall, the police department, or the local paper can spell. Money disappears, and what money is actually used is put towards poorly constructed buildings, reelection campaigns, and useless legislation. The local government has a long history of corruption and ineptitude, and is dominated by "good old boys" that resist any improvements which may affect their way of life. Terrible.

    Living in Blanchard has been a huge blessing to me. I have been able to grow up with some of my best friends. Not only have I met some of the most influential people in my life, but the majority of my family resides here too. I would definitely choose to live in Blanchard again. I believe that Blanchard will continue to grow, but it will keep it's homey feeling that draws people in.

    No one can depend on the police. They regularly stop drivers for no reason, IF they are even patrolling and not at a local party. Police reports are subject to all kinds of grammatical errors and are often of dubious veracity. Also, the officers can tend to be very confrontational when off-duty, and liable to physically threaten others.
