Serving the community in order to protect it and contribute to quality of life are the main goals of HPD. We do this by enforcing laws, working to prevent crimes and maintaining order using the best tools available to us. We are very proud and fortunate to have two K9 officers that give us yet another way to keep our streets and schools safe.
Our most direct contribution to the youth of the community is a cooperative effort between the Nettle Creek School Corporation and HPD. A highly successful competitive archery club has been formed and continues to attract more and more participation by students.
