Department of Public Safety
The Town Marshal is Hudson’s chief law enforcement officer. As director of the Department of Public Safety, the Marshal is responsible for crime prevention, traffic safety, public education, animal control and enforcement of applicable Town and state laws.
The Department is currently staffed by 4 full time employees, the Marshal and three deputies, all of whom are certified law enforcement officers. The Marshal’s office emphasizes the protection of life, liberty and justice for all who reside in, visit or travel through our community. It is responsible for enforcement of Federal, State, and Municipal laws and ordinances, apprehension of fugitives and violators of law, and regulation of traffic.
The Marshal’s office is also responsible for Animal Control, assisting with the Town’s yearly pet vaccination clinic and animal registration. The Marshal and Deputies also assist SAFEbuilt, the Town’s contract code enforcement officer, with enforcement of the Town’s environmental codes.
During large scale emergencies the Marshal acts cooperatively with other agencies to protect all citizens. One such cooperative effort is the Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT).
The Marshal’s Office has several programs to assist citizens.
• Child Identification Kits
• Area Watch Request
• Vehicle Identification Number Verification program
Citizens who plan to be away from Hudson for an extended period of time can submit an Area Watch Request. Marshals will check your home or business to see that it is secure and undisturbed while you’re away. The Marshal’s office asks for assistance from the community in gathering information regarding incidents within your area. Please complete a Citizens Concern Form to ask a question or get clarification about something that concerns you. If you have been in a traffic accident or a criminal act has impacted you, you can submit a Records Request to obtain information.
The Department is served by the Weld County Dispatch system. It also shares mutual aid with the Weld County Sheriff and neighboring police departments.
