TCI america New London Police Union has suspended their annual telephonic fundraiser with TCI America upon learning the public was recently solicited by CT Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association (NEOA)  and Connecticut Police Work Dog Association (CPWDA). Some donors were led to believe their contributions were being distributed to benefit the New London Police-they were not. 

Our police union fundraiser is used to offset some of our operating costs utilizing local businesses whenever possible, fund local civic events throughout the year and contributing to many area non profit organizations. We intend to resume our fundraiser in April 2018. On behalf of TCI America we apologize for any confusion caused.

To those residents and businesses who generously donated we appreciate your support.

Car 32 sent to the shop for new paint job!
Unfortunately the spare car has the same issue...

From the comment section of The Day

You have a dead downtown because heavy traffic just runs right through it with zero incentive to stop and property owners who just sit on their properties. Some new business have come... aaand gone and some are still hanging in there but most of what you see is not appealing to any EBer getting out of work trying to make it home. EB is not the problem here. The problem is how your city looks to ANYONE travelling in it. Just yesterday an NLPD K-9 unit pulled up behind me. Hood was all painted up splotched with primer looking like it belonged in someone's chop shop. That's an example of the face of New London right now.
