Although the discussion of Hudson becoming a sanctuary city took up almost an hour of a meeting that lasted for more the ninety minutes, it wasn't the only thing discussed at the Common Council Police Committee meeting.
Bill Roehr, of TGW Consultants, reported on a grant application for body cameras for Hudson police officers. Chief Ed Moore made his report for 2016 which indicated that all types of crime in Hudson, except domestic violence, were trending down, and the "overall picture is optimistic." If the trend continues, Moore predicted, "We might be able to devote more time to quality of life issues if we're not spending as much time on criminal investigations." He also reported that the new police and court building, which he said was "such a vast improvement" over the current facility, will be ready for a spring opening. He plans at open house "to show the taxpayers how their money was spent."
If you want to know everything that was said and discussed, Dan Udell's video of the Police Committee meeting is now available on YouTube.
