“The Hudson County Sheriff’s Office would like to offer our deepest condolences and prayers to the families of the deceased officers in Baton Rouge earlier today, and to the entire Baton Rouge Police Department and the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Department. We would also like to wish a speedy recovery to the wounded officers.

Despite the tragic and unfortunate events that have plagued the law enforcement community nationwide the last couple of days, we will continue to protect our communities and the people we serve. The Hudson County Sheriff’s Office is taking every precaution possible to keep our officers and the public safe. We are asking the public to please inform the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office or their municipal police department if they see something out of the norm. We must rise above our differences and come together as a nation of one for the greater good.”

Hudson County Sheriff Frank X. Schillari
