Hudson Oaks to host open house for National Police Week

May 3, 2010 by Randy Keck

The City of Hudson Oaks is celebrating National Police Week (May 9-15) with a special community event. On Monday, May 10, the city and the Hudson Oaks Police Department will host an open house at the Public Safety Building (150 N. Oakridge Drive) from 4-7 p.m.

National Police Week occurs annually during the week that includes May 15, which is designated as Peace Officers Memorial Day. At 5:30 p.m., during the open house event, the H.O.P.D. will hold a special ceremony honoring those officers who have sacrificed their lives in service to their communities.

National Police Week is also an opportunity for public safety departments around the country to raise awareness about the services they provide to local communities. This year, for the first time, the entire Hudson Oaks community is invited to come enjoy free hot dogs and drinks while they take advantage of this opportunity to tour the H.O.P.D. facility and learn about the various ways the police department serves the residents and businesses in Hudson Oaks.

Throughout the event, police officers and other H.O.P.D. staff will be leading tours through the Public Safety Building, providing insight into the department’s Investigations, Patrol, Property, Armory, Narcotics, and Emergency Operations functions. Police department vehicles and equipment will be available for attendees to view.

One special feature at this Open House event will be S.I.D.N.E. The Simulated Impaired DriviNg Experience provides participants of all ages a chance to drive a special go‐cartstyle vehicle that simulates the effects of impaired driving. This educational tool lets drivers have a true hands‐on experience to help them learn about the dangers of driving while intoxicated or distracted by things like phones and texting. The S.I.D.N.E. simulator is available through an interlocal agreement between the cities of Hudson Oaks and Azle.
