Hudson Police officer Sergeant Michael Gosselin was honored at Monday night’s Hudson Selectmen’s meeting for 20 years of service to the town.  Selectman Chairman Coutu presented the award after reading Sgt. Gosselin’s service career.

Sergeant Gosselin began his law enforcement career with the Hudson Police Department on March 13, 1995.  Upon graduation from the New Hampshire 107th Police Academy in November 1995, Sergeant Gosselin was assigned to the Patrol Division.  He spent many summers patrolling as a member of the department.  In July 1999 he was transferred to the Criminal Investigation Division.  In January 2002, Sergeant Gosselin returned to the Patrol Division as a master patrol officer and was promoted to the rank of sergeant on March 1, 2009.

Sergeant Gosselin is a member of the Hudson Police Department Honor Guard.  He is a supervisor on the Department’s Crime Scene Unit.  He spent many years volunteering for the New Hampshire Special Olympics.  He was instrumental in starting the military care package program, sending care packages to military personnel stationed overseas.

Sergeant Gosselin served in the United States Army from 1980 to 1983.  He was a military police officer in Bremerhaven, Germany, where he met his lovely wife, Christine, and holds a criminal justice degree from Hesser College.  Mike and Christine have two children, Jason and Lisa, who both reside in Washington state.

Sergeant Gosselin is dedicated to his job and has certainly been an asset to the Hudson Police Department.
