Children of Hudson Interacting with Police Services (C.H.I.P.S.) is a charitable organization which is dedicated to fostering improved relations between the children of our town and our police department. Since 1990 C.H.I.P.S., which consists of a committee of police officers, business people and concerned citizens, has endeavored to fund and produce programs which allow our town's police officers to meet and socialize with Hudson's children and their parents.

Fright Night

Perhaps the most successful and notable event for our younger residents is the annual Fright Night - a Halloween Party sponsored by C.H.I.P.S. which is open to all of Hudson's children. As many as one thousand six hundred fifty people have attended the party at the Hudson Community Center where the children received Halloween bags, pizza, drinks, popcorn, and prizes while a DJ M.C.'s the event. The children participate in games, pumpkin painting, and costume contests and interact with the many police officers in attendance.
