#Bridgeport CT– When Bridgeport was transparent and allowed the press to listen to the police calls I felt the most important thing was to alert citizens in real time of crime around them. Often times robberies happened in the same area by the same suspect until they were caught. If I don’t know about a crime, I can’t ask about it. Since then I’ve had to rely on what the city wanted to tell you. Each week I ask about “calls of significance” that is assaults, robberies, carjacking home invasions and the like. So apparently there were only a couple of robberies this weekend and a unsubstantiated carjacking attempt. That’s it! Apparently Fairfield Police had difficulty contacting Bridgeport Police because there wasn’t police operator able to take their call, but there only those few calls. Again, no transparency.
Well, here are those robberies with all the details a few days later:
