A new survey of former New London police officers suggests that the extraordinarily high turnover at the New London Police Department is due to the mismanagement of Police Chief Margaret Ackley. Just in the last 2 months, 13 officers have left the New London police force.

C15“We believe that the constant turnover and poor work environment at the New London Police Department, which this survey links directly to Chief Ackley, are major obstacles to keeping the public safe,” said Jeffrey H. Matchett, Executive Director of AFSCME Council 15. Council 15 represents nearly 4,000 Connecticut police offices, including those on the New London force. “Under Chief Ackley’s watch, experienced officers are leaving New London in droves to serve other communities”, according to the survey.

Over 40 police officers that left during Chief Ackley’s tenure, which began in June of 2009, were asked a number of questions relating to their jobs at New London. When asked to identify factors that led to their departures, more than six in ten officers ranked a “harsh work environment,” among their top two choices. Sixty-one percent selected “problems with the police chief,” as their first or second most determining factor for leaving.

The former officers also indicated on the survey that they considered their relationship with Police Chief Ackley very poor, giving it a ranking of 2.6 on a 10 scale. This is contrasted with satisfaction with their co-workers, direct supervisor, and their union, all of which ranked above 7. “The results of survey provide a compelling case for new leadership,” said Matchett.
