511 Police Officers ‘Feloniously Killed’ On Duty in Last 10 Years on Record.  READ



PCRC member Habibah Abdul-Hakeem complains that Capt Wrights investigative report was 409 pages. “This is too long how could any one read this”!

Makes reference that police purposely made long report to hide malfeasance (our words not hers) even though criminal case has already been closed with a conviction.
So much for transparency… We’ll offer a cliff note version next meeting


Newest Rifleman – S Perry, Valerio



The House unanimously passed a bill Tuesday that “strengthens” the legal framework for what’s considered deadly use of force by a police officer and delays the training for police officers in the new standard.

Rep. Tom O’Dea, R-New Canaan, said he felt the bill was rushed when it was passed during a special session last July and appreciates that the bill was revisited this session, even though Democratic lawmakers had initially been resistant to any changes.


State Rep’ Nolans campaign manager Councilor Burke says...

I do support the ordinance as presented to repeal the mandated minimum number of police officers. I support reallocating funds from the Police Department to Public Works, Human Services, and education. In the protests this past spring, protesters were told it was too late because the budget was already adopted. I want to remind everyone that in the fiscal year 2020-2021, the New Haven PD was cut by $4 million. The Hartford PD was cut by $1 million.

Rep’ Nolan silent on if he signed petition to save police jobs!


Thank you Sue from TA Scotts and their collection of $700 for the K-9 program!

We predicted this exodus last year from regressive legislation at the State Capitol and zero support from City Hall. Our elected officials have bent over backwards to appease the small but vocal anti police crowd at the expense of public safety.
Our cops have decided why stay where you aren’t welcome or appreciated. Councilors have ignored serious discussions with law enforcement professionals on city public safety other than repeat loud and often their zero sum plan that all education and social service agency revenues must only result from defunding the police budget.

From the President:  Mr Goodwin,  I have read you Facebook post…

Mr Goodwin states he supports accountability, healthier community, youth and equality. Also cares about the residents, tax dollars and their right to how they want to address Public Safety…

NO WHERE does he state he supports or cares about the men and women of the NLPD, who put their lives on the line every night to protect the City of NL.

I find THAT embarrassing and harmful!
President T Lynch

“The groups that led the charge and signed a letter requesting the repeal have been vocal about their efforts to defund the police department,” Goulart said. “This ordinance was the barrier. We’re not stupid. These two things are linked.”



“Your department’s loss is our gain,” said Oswego County Sheriff Donald Hilton. “It is a great opportunity for us.”

City has finally found a taker for “intimidating” vehicle.
Oswego NY Sheriff Dept glad to take it.


Congrats Lt Keating and Sgt Linderson!

Mr Ocean Beach is also long time EMT who often beat the fire department to many serious injury scenes. Wayne provided countless life saving first aid over his career. His retirement is another great loss for New London.


Looking for leadership…?

Do the right thing!


This is probably not a popular take among the defund-the-police crowd. Sorry. But I find the local defund-the-police crowd incorrectly applying a national narrative to a local domain, whose police force is professional and efficient. There’s no denying police brutality is very real and that Colin Kaepernick was right. But howling about it in New London, Ct., is misplaced, saying more about a group’s cries for attention than anything factual or practical.
