A Message from the Chief of Police
All members of the Hudson Police Department are committed to presenting a successful community-oriented policing approach in dealing with today’s concerns and tomorrow’s problems. Community-oriented policing is not one program. It is an ongoing committed effort to establish, develop, maintain, and enhance a collaborative partnership with citizens and city leaders for the safety and security of all.
In our quest to promote such a partnership, we have developed the programs described in this website to address today’s problems and concerns. We stand ready to add programs as needed and improve on those already established. We are your Police Department, and we are here to serve and protect.
Chief Dave Robbins
