June and FINAL  update
Read full update HERE
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.

Read it

“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.”


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.


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.

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


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.
