Chief Hudak

Dear Citizens:

As your Chief of Police, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve this great community.

As a member of the Police Department for the past 26 years, I have learned much about putting other people’s lives and property as my top priority, and about upholding our most fundamental values as we all serve to protect you. This is what I love to do and therefore I am humbled for the great challenge to lead the Coral Gables Police Department.

Moving forward, our men and women, sworn and civilian, who work tirelessly in this organization will continue to provide police services with honor and excellence.

In an era when wearing a police uniform means being a target of attacks, we stay vigilant and dedicated to do our law enforcement and crime prevention duties. Our work continues in all areas as we look to strengthen our distribution of duties and resources, especially in our daily patrolling, criminal investigations, and specialized enforcement units.

The Coral Gables Police Department appreciates your feedback. Residents, neighbors, friends, and visitors alike make the essence of this community. Your participation as the “eyes and ears” of this Police Department is instrumental in helping apprehend criminals, thus preventing other crimes of opportunities.

My office is always open to you. Feel free to drop a note, email me, or contact my office if you have an issue for us to discuss, or if you need special attention from our police services. We are here to help you and I welcome your involvement.

Thank you for the trust you have in me.

Edward J. Hudak, Jr.
