Crime in Hudson

While the battle still rages over Second Ward alderman Tiffany Garriga's appointment to the Common Council Police Committee and her abrupt and public removal from that committee, Roger Hannigan Gilson reports today in the Register-Star that crime in Hudson--both violent crime and property crime--has dropped significantly: "Hudson crime rate takes sharp dip." Without taking credit from his officers, HPD Chief Ed Moore attributed the decrease in crime to socioeconomic factors: a lower unemployment rate and a decrease in the number of vacant buildings in the city--in other words, revitalization.
