Lets just hope the fire department is more successful in the new location than the police are in theirs. As we all know crime has become epidemic in Norwalk since they moved into 1 Monroe Street, under the leadership of Rilling. Also even with all the new technology we the taxpayer have paid for, the NPD has failed to solve most of the violent crimes of the past several years.
So what I am saying is a building does not make a police or fire department successful. What does is leadership and the determination of the force.
I am all but sure the NFD will be a success as always unlike the failures of the NPD. View Comment
I think it’s disgraceful that it took the NPD almost a year to release the video. This is something that a real police department would have done in days. However I am all but sure the NPD did have other proprieties as in $$$$$$$ 65.00 per hour dirt jobs on the backs of the taxpayer.
Also let us not forget our chief who lives out of town promised the individuals responsible for this horrid act would be caught. In the real world as in the private sector where employees are actually held accountable, when a manger as in the chief fails to keep a major commitment
They are fired or do the right thing and resign. Why would we expect any accountability from the mayor or his rubber stamp handpicked police commission? Just take a look at how many years Rilling stayed on the job all the while as crime continued to become epidemic in Norwalk and while the NPD had one officer after the next involved in scandals..
Please you can do better than that with the guys getting caught in Fairfield by cops working dirt jobs. You know as well as I do that is one in a million and does not justify the extra cost which seems to amount to millions.
Also for the NPD to actually catch someone they would need to actually be out of the patrol car and not playing on their cell phone. Pretty hard to see a crime being committed when playing pac-man.
Here is a repost of an Survey I posted on another article.
A little something from a Massachusetts survey
Police officers working at construction sites on local roads were paid an estimated $94.3 million statewide last year, more than three times the amount civilian flaggers might have cost, according to a study that questions whether details pay off in road safety.
The study contends that taxpayers and businesses could have saved $37 million to $67 million if local laws allowed companies and government agencies to hire civilian flaggers instead of uniformed officers to direct traffic at construction sites.
“Somebody owes the public a big explanation as to why we are wasting millions of dollars a year on these details,” said David Tuerck, executive director of the Beacon Hill Institute at Suffolk University, which conducted the study. “The police cannot produce one shred of evidence to support why we need this expense.”
FYI Before some blow hard says I have an issue with the police or take the test in a lame attempt to redirect ..I have no issues if the police would actually do what they are paid to do
So True Jane So true
Moccia has been sucking up to the police union ever since promoting a chief with ZERO search for the best candidate. Its all about Moccia taking care of the police while the police do ZERO for Norwalk which is clear by the out of control crime,.
We have a 4 percent Moccia tax increase coming while we are paying cops 65 plus per hour,with a city car and city gas to read the newspaper at a hole in the ground. Other towns cities and Moccia urban center have gone to traffic agent s at 15 per hour without a city car and without city gas. Maybe is we did this in Norwalk we would not need the tax increase sicne View Comment
The NPD is a complete and total failure..We have so many violent crimes that have not been solved and they are worry about this...What a waste..
Maybe its time to look at outsourcing the NPD . View Comment
The NPD is wasting time with this when we have hundreds off shootings, stabbings and killings ALL UNSOLVED..
How about the double homicide a few summers ago, how about the shooting of the soccer mom at stop and shop where the chief promised they would get the shooter....I guess those are not important anymore. View Comment
The NPD finally caught ONE and we have the simpletons saying good job. Its clear these simpletons have very low standards. How about the hundreds of shootings in Norwalk that the NPD has not solved..How about the many many stabbing and murders all unsolved, but they caught one ...TOO FUNNY View Comment
ODD as I haven't posted all day yet the troll ponytail Steve accuses everyone which is most people that disagree with her as being me. Thanks for the compliment fool. I WONDER WHY SHE IS SO OBSESSED WITH ME IS IT DUE TO THE FACT THAT I ALWAYS MAKE ME LOOK FOOLISH. Thanks for the Laughs troll. View Comment
This is a GREAT compliment. We need more liberals to fix the mess and the wars that the conservative right winger cause.
Let us not forget about the near depression that the village idiot Bush caused. President Obama inhered this on his first day in office and has fixed most of the Republican Bush's disasters in 4 short years. Only a fool would disagree with this fact.. View Comment
