Bridgeport Announces New Safety Initiatives

#Bridgeport CT (June 30, 2015 Press Release) – Mayor Bill Finch today announced the Police Department is instituting walking beats in the city’s four public housing complexes and expanding its Safe Corridors program in the area of Trumbull Gardens to enhance safety for kids and families.

“Bridgeport today is safer than it has been in about 40 years, but we can and must do more,” said Mayor Bill Finch. “That’s why we are initiating walking beats in our public housing complexes. Our officers will be out there every day — talking with residents, building better relationships and keeping our kids safe. It’s not just community policing. This is smart policing.”
In addition, the city is expanding its Safe Corridors program to add approximately 10 cameras around schools near Trumbull Gardens.

Safe Corridors is designed to ensure kids get to and from school safely through additional patrols by school resource officers and community volunteers at the beginning and end of the school day and through technology.

“This is a layered approach to safety through police, volunteers and cameras. The cameras are monitored throughout the school day in our command center, and they record 24-hours a day,” said Jorge Garcia, the city’s Director of Public Facilities. “In the event of an incident, police have immediate access to the footage.”

Security cameras have been invaluable in investigations, said Police Chief Joseph L. Gaudett Jr.

“We’ve identified suspects and solved crimes using video from businesses, private homes, schools and police department cameras,” said Chief Gaudett. “The cameras not only help our detectives solve crimes but they serve as a deterrent to crime as well. The new cameras around Trumbull Gardens will make the community safer.”

The department continues to expand its capacity to use technology in investigations. Last year, the department sent detectives for specialized FBI training in the Digital Imaging Video Recovery (DIVRT) system, which allows detectives to efficiently retrieve video from public and private security systems so it can be quickly disseminated to the public.

That initiative has solved a number of serious crimes, including the April 11 killing of Jose Salgado in his store.

Governor Applauds Bipartisan Second Chance Legislation

#HARTFORD, CT – Governor Dannel P. Malloy is applauding the Connecticut General Assembly for giving bipartisan, final approval today in favor of the “Second Chance Society” legislation he introduced that is designed to continue the progress being made in reducing the state’s dropping crime rate, which is currently at a 48-year low, as well as ensuring nonviolent offenders are being reintegrated into society and become productive members of Connecticut’s economy.

“We can truly be tough on crime by being smarter on crime, and that’s why we’re focusing on initiatives that work.  The cycle our system currently encourages – one of permanent punishment – hurts too many families and communities,” Governor Malloy said.  “When we should have been focusing on permanent reform, we focused on permanent punishment.  For too long, we built modern jails instead of modern schools.  Because this bill passed, Connecticut has taken a giant step into the future.  Our law enforcement professionals and courts can focus on lowering crime even further by channeling efforts towards serious, violent criminals and putting them behind bars for longer sentences.  And most of all, these initiatives are focused on turning nonviolent offenders into productive members of our society that can contribute to our economy, rather than drain it.  Ultimately, this will make our communities safer, and will make for a brighter tomorrow in Connecticut.”

The Governor added, “These are smart criminal justice initiatives that are working in states throughout the country – both red and blue.  And today in Connecticut, we have shown that Democrats and Republicans can come together to enact laws that will have a positive impact on crime reduction.  I want to thank the leadership in the House and the Senate, including Senate President Looney, Speaker Sharkey, Senator Fasano, and Representative Klarides, as well as the Judiciary Committee chairmen and ranking members – Senator Coleman, Representative Tong, Senator Kissel and Representative Rebimbas – and the bipartisan majority who have moved this bill to my desk so that I can sign it into law.”

Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman said, “This legislation is part of a smarter, more strategic approach to reducing crime and recidivism.  Under Governor Malloy’s leadership, crime has dropped and Connecticut communities are safer – this is paramount to a better quality of life for all residents.  Improving how we prepare and reintegrate ex-offenders into housing, employment, and services will bolster this progress.  I applaud the legislature for sending this bill to the Governor’s desk.”

Gobernador Dannel P. Malloy aplaude la Asamblea General de Connecticut para dar la aprobación bipartidista, final de hoy a favor de la legislación “Segunda Oportunidad Sociedad” introdujo que está diseñado para seguir los progresos realizados en la reducción de la tasa de criminalidad caer del estado, que se encuentra actualmente a un bajo de 48 años, así como garantizar los delincuentes no violentos están siendo reintegrados a la sociedad y convertirse en miembros productivos de la economía de Connecticut.

“Nosotros realmente podemos ser duros con el crimen por ser más inteligente sobre la delincuencia, y por eso nos estamos enfocando en iniciativas que funcionan. El ciclo de nuestro sistema fomenta actualmente – una de castigo permanente – duele demasiadas familias y comunidades “, dijo el gobernador Malloy. “Cuando debemos hemos centrado en la reforma permanente, nos centramos en el castigo permanente. Durante demasiado tiempo, hemos construido cárceles modernas en lugar de las escuelas modernas. Debido a que este proyecto de ley aprobado, Connecticut ha dado un paso de gigante hacia el futuro. Nuestros profesionales de la ley y los tribunales pueden centrarse en la reducción de la delincuencia aún más mediante la canalización de esfuerzos hacia graves, criminales violentos y ponerlos tras las rejas por sentencias más largas. Y, sobre todo, estas iniciativas se centran en convertir los delincuentes no violentos en miembros productivos de nuestra sociedad que pueden contribuir a nuestra economía, en lugar de drenarlo. En última instancia, esto hará que nuestras comunidades sean más seguras, y hará que para un mañana más brillante en Connecticut “.

El gobernador añadió: “Se trata de iniciativas de justicia penal inteligentes que trabajan en estados en todo el país – tanto rojo y azul. Y hoy en Connecticut, hemos demostrado que los demócratas y los republicanos pueden unirse para promulgar leyes que tendrán un impacto positivo en la reducción de la delincuencia. Quiero dar las gracias al liderazgo en la Cámara y el Senado, incluyendo el presidente del Senado Looney, altavoz Sharkey, el Senador Fasano, y Representante Klarides, así como los presidentes del Comité Judicial y miembros de alto rango – Senador Coleman, Representante Tong, el senador Kissel y Representante Rebimbas – y la mayoría de ambos partidos que se han trasladado este proyecto de ley a mi despacho para que yo pueda firmar la ley “.

Vicegobernador Nancy Wyman dijo: “Esta legislación es parte de un enfoque más inteligente, más estratégico para reducir la delincuencia y la reincidencia. Bajo el liderazgo del Gobernador Malloy, la delincuencia se ha reducido y las comunidades de Connecticut son más seguros – esto es de suma importancia para una mejor calidad de vida para todos los residentes.
