Help Me Home is a voluntary enrollment program for adults and children who may become lost and/or have difficulty communicating vital information about themselves.

Always the first Tuesday in August, National Night Out (NNO) is an opportunity for neighbors to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and enjoy an evening with neighbors in the community. Invite the HPD NNO Party Patrol to celebrate with you and your neighbors and together we will enjoy a night out and give crime a going-away party!


 Portable Radar

Portable Radar Sign Program

HPD utilizes Portable Radar Signs as a tool to raise awareness about driver speed and hopefully cause a change in driving behavior to slow speeding vehicles. Not to be confused with photo radar, these signs only track speed data but, are a very practical mechanism to supplement police presence and traffic enforcement.
