As most of you already know, school is beginning summer break. One of the Police Department goals is to help keep youth out of trouble. This is a community effort and requires everyone to help. The Police Department would like to extend a challenge to the youth of Hudson. This challenge is intended to engage the youth in activities that benefit the community of Hudson. For the rest of the summer, each Saturday we will have different activities available for anyone interested. At the end of the summer, we will present a police challenge coin to the participant who donates the most amount of time. Everyone else will receive a token in exchange for services completed. Signup will begin on June 6th, 2015. You can register by calling 260-316-3500. You can also call for questions or requests for community service to improve the Town of Hudson.
Although this week has seemed more like winter, better weather is on the way. It is important to note that with nicer weather comes with more people walking around. It is very common to find trash bags filled with unknown contents. Your first instinct may be to throw it away to help clean up. We must warn you that some of these items may be filled with hazardous waste in the form of spent meth labs. We come across these items very often and they are very dangerous. If you happen to find a trash bag filled with unknown contents laying on the side of the road or elsewhere, please contact the Hudson Police Department. Our goal is to not only clean up the meth trash but also to find people associated with manufacturing this drug. Having said that, if anyone wishes to submit an anonymous tip, you may contact the Hudson Police Department or Steuben County Sheriffs Department. Without community help and support, law enforcement is not as effective as it could be. Thanks
