Hudson police department began in the early 1960's by a group of volunteers who patrol in their own cars with the intention of providing police protection to the citizens of the Town of Hudson. Ken Huss was the first Police Chief and led the volunteer force until the Town decided to hire a full time officer. In November 1966, Dewy Haynes was hired as the first full time officer. Since that time the Police Department has grown as the Town and need for police services grew. Currently, the Department consists of 12 full time officers, 1 civilian employee and 2 non-paid reserve officers. Three of our officers are School Resource Officers and one of the School Resource Officers is also our DARE Officer.
