Appreciated police class

Dear Editor,

We would like to extend our appreciation to Chief Marty Jensen and the Hudson Police Department for offering us the opportunity to participate in the citizens police academy.

Over the past eight weeks, we drove the squads, learned about arrest and defense tactics, crime scene investigations, OWI and use of deadly force. There were guest speakers from the FBI and Secret Service discussing crime investigations, interviewing, counterfeiting, identity theft and presidential security.

Those that attended the classes have a greater appreciation for our law enforcement officers. We had a great time in each of the classes and would encourage residents of Hudson to sign up the next time it is offered.

A special acknowledgement to Detective Sergeant Atkinson for leading the academy each week. You did a great job.
