Coffee with a Cop

On October 25th,  from 2pm-4pm, 2017, the Hillsdale Police Department will be hosting "Coffee with a Cop" at TD Bank of Hillsdale of from 2pm-4pm. The event is designed to be an agenda-free meeting between the residents and police officers, where informal conversations about what matters to the community can take place. The goal of the program is to build better relationships so the police and the community can work together to more effectively solve problems. Hillsdale Police Officers will be present to listen to any comments, complaints, or community problems that need to be addressed. In addition, if we are unable to address your issue during the event, we will ensure that the proper follow-up is conducted.

We are looking forward to this event and would like to thank TD Bank of Hillsdale for their continued support and donation of coffee for our event.


Zero Tolerance for Halloween and Mischief Night

This year the Hillsdale Police Department will be conducting a Zero Tolerance Policy this year during “Mischief Night” and Halloween (October 30th and 31st). This policy is vital for the safety of our children and the protection of property. We are urging parents to take an active role in order to assist us in this endeavor.

Historically, our community had experienced significant property damage as well as mischievous and criminal behavior by unsupervised juveniles and young adults on these nights. We also had problems with juveniles congregating in large groups in various areas of town. Parents and guardians should be aware of the activity that occurs when their children are out unsupervised. Most property damage and criminal activity occur when seemingly harmless behavior and pranks escalate out of control.

Parents should establish a dialogue with their children about unacceptable behavior or more importantly, not allow their children out without adult supervision. Parents must be cognizant of their children’s actions and behavior. Children leaving the home dressed in dark clothing and/or in possession of items such as eggs, shaving cream, and other malicious items are traditionally a formula for trouble.
