So if anyone is paying attention the
common thread repeated in all this is - we don't
have enough cops. Each shift has our people
plugging their fingers in the crumbling dike we call
New London and hopes the dyke won't fail during our
While we all standby for to multi jurisdictional city
department heads deconstructing this spike in recent
violence. Most if not all of those participants work
Monday thru Friday 8:30-4:30, leaving only the police
to once again do all the heavy lifting, with the same
five cops per shift for the entire city. Maybe the answer
is simply hire more firemen, because we never seem to
have enough and don't need to convene a panel experts
to deconstruct that request.
Keating expressed to members of the PCRC on 1/2/18 the
need for more police, with the possible loss of 20 Officers
due to fast closing in retirements.
"That city has no police hiring plan", that
he knew of for hiring more police!
