Yesterday, the Hudson Police Department received an email from a citizen who had witnessed three drivers pass through the intersection of Warren and Third streets while using their cell phones. The implied complaint was: "Why aren't the police doing something to stop this dangerous behavior?"
In response to the complaint about distracted drivers, Lieutenant David Miller supplied the daily incident log for yesterday, April 13, to show what the police were doing yesterday which prevented them from monitoring intersections and handing out tickets to drivers caught texting or talking on the phone. Gossips was copied on both the complaint and the response, and with Lieutenant Miller's permission, yesterday's log appears below. (Click on the image to enlarge.)
The log shows that, in their twelve-hour shift, the two officers who were on duty yesterday dealt with thirty-three incidents, among them a person with a gun, shots fired, an assault, and a hit-and-run accident.
