Unity in the Community

Hillsdale Police Department Community Outreach Event

This event is to help restart and support our local businesses

      Chief Robert Francaviglia and the Hillsdale Police Department wish to do their part in showing support to our local businesses and at the same time promote solidarity in our community. In light of the COVID-19 and the events surrounding our nation today, the Hillsdale Police Department is pleased to announce we are sponsoring a poster contest. The message of each poster will be “Unity in the Community”. All submissions must promote resiliency and solidarity and should include a Hillsdale theme. The poster dimensions should be no larger than 16”x20”.  The first 200 submissions, will receive a $10.00 gift card to a Hillsdale food establishment. All posters will be submitted along with the artist’s name and address by taking a photo and emailing it to Lt. McLaughlin at dmclaughlin@hillsdalepolice.com, who will schedule a pickup of the poster and present the $10.00 gift card. The department’s command staff will judge the winners. Select posters will be displayed at a local business for everyone to enjoy. At this time, the contest is only open to Hillsdale residents, however, depending on the number of submissions, this may be further opened up to a wider audience. The deadline for submissions will be July 4th.  

There will be 3 prizes awarded:

1st Place - $100.00 gift card to ANY business in Hillsdale

How to File a Report (COVID-19 Precautions)

March 16, 2020

Our department is asking you to please follow these precautions during the COVID-19 outbreak:

In case of emergency dial 911 and headquarters is open for emergencies, however;

  • Avoid coming to Police Headquarters unless you absolutely have to.
  • You should call first and be screened by the Dispatcher if your matter is not an emergency. 
  • Most reports can be handled over the phone and faxed or emailed to you.

Our great dispatchers handle EVERY single 9-1-1 Police, Fire, and EMS call that comes in; Our personnel are limited and we cannot afford to lose them during this National, State, County and Local emergency. We must enact measures to protect our personnel during this Pandemic.

We are committed to providing the highest level of service to our residents as we have always done.

Our officers are highly trained and have witnessed some of the largest disasters to affect the area from 9/11 to Super Storm Sandy and everything in between, we’ve always been here. Sometimes on double and triple shifts, with little sleep. But we’ve always been able to serve. This virus has the potential to disrupt our operations if we don’t make these changes.

Stay safe, stay healthy and help each other. Together we will get through this. Thank you for your cooperation, understanding, and support.
