Officer Kurt Hudson began his career with Cobb County PD in 2017 and has been at Precinct 2 since graduating from the police academy. He is currently a Field Training Officer with a passion for sharing his knowledge of the requirements of the job with others. He not only works hard as a police officer, he also works a part time job three nights a week. Ordinarily, when he's not working, you will find him at the gym, or spending time with his girlfriend, Haley, or with his family.
In August, Kurt was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He had surgery later that same month and he has been in cancer treatment at City of Hope in Newnan, for the past several months. Unfortunately it was determined that the cancer had spread to his lungs, spleen and lymph nodes. As a result it was necessary to put a stint in his kidney to allow it to drain properly. Even though the cancer had spread, it is still classified as testicular cancer, which is 99% treatable.
Kurt has completed two of the four cycles of chemo and, although he has had some setbacks, overall he is responding extremely well to the treatment. Altogether, he has been out of work since late August; however, doctors are hopeful he will be able to return to work by mid-January. As a result, Kurt remains optimistic and upbeat about his future.
