The Members of Local 3979 want to be clear that they do not agree with the order. There exist reasonable questions as to whether the order is constitutional or whether it complies with the City Charter as claimed by the Police Commissioner and the Mayor. The Members of Local 3979, proudly serve the citizens of the City of Hudson, and in doing so, we work with and assist other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in keeping our citizens safe.
We believe that this order is a political statement by the Police Commissioner and Mayor on recent executive orders issued by President Trump. By issuing the order, the Police Commissioner and the Mayor are limiting the ability of duly sworn law enforcement officers from doing their job and enforcing the laws they are sworn to uphold. Law enforcement shouldn't be limited or modified by two individuals who have no experience in enforcing laws and keeping the community safe.The press release calls for the order to be rescinded.
