Department Asks Public To Help Sergeant Who Suffered Stroke Overseas

Hudson Police Sgt. Scott Chaulk, a 21-year veteran-of-the-force, remains hospitalized in Barcelona, Spain.

Hudson, MA – The Hudson Police Department (HPD) has reached out for the community’s help in assisting a police sergeant who has been hospitalized in Spain since Oct. 30.

While visiting his son, who is studying abroad, 53-year-old Hudson Police Sergeant Scott Chaulk suffered a stroke in Barcelona, HPD said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

He underwent surgery, but still requires hospitalized care that prevents him from being able to return to the United States at this time.

Doctors said they do not know when Sgt. Chaulk might be well enough to travel.

“We are all very concerned about Scott, his wife, Donna, and their sons, Ryan and Zach, and we are keeping them in our thoughts constantly,” Hudson Police Chief Michael Burks said in the Facebook post.

“Anything that members of the Hudson community can do to help them in their time of need would be greatly appreciated, as we want to do whatever is possible to ease the burden brought on by this sudden turn of events,” Chief Burks added.

HPD has set up a fundraising campaign to help Sgt. Chaulk and his family in the wake of the medical emergency.

The fund has raised over $7,000 so far.

Chief Burks said that Sgt. Chaulk is doing “as well as can be expected” under the circumstances, The MetroWest Daily News reported.

“It’s tough when something like this happens to someone you know when they’re here, but it’s even harder when they’re so far away,” the chief said.

Sgt. Chaulk, a 21-year veteran-of-the-force, served as both a patrol officer and as a detective prior to being promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2015.
