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 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

"That city has no police hiring plan", that
he knew of for hiring more police!
