Lone Frankford police officer tenders resignation to Town

The Frankford Police Department’s single remaining police officer, Nate Hudson, submitted his letter of resignation to the Town earlier this week.

“He has put his letter of resignation in, yes,” confirmed Councilwoman Cheryl Workman.

Hudson, who joined the department in April of 2011, had remained the only active officer following the December 2014 retirement of Chief William Dudley.

Last month, the Town formed a police committee to look for Dudley’s replacement.

Workman said that the Town would be advertising for someone to fill Hudson’s position.

“It is very important for us to keep our residents in this town safe,” emphasized Workman. “We need police patrols in this town… We need our own town police.”

Councilman Charles Shelton, who formed the police committee at the Town’s January council meeting, declined to comment on Hudson’s departure but said it would be discussed at the town council’s Feb. 2 meeting.
