HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The head of Connecticut’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner says a review has found no illegal quota system is in place.

Reuben Bradford reported the finding Monday to Gov, Dannel P. Malloy. Malloy had asked for the review last week after the disclosure of a recent internal state police memorandum urging troopers from the Bethany barracks to compete over who could write the most tickets.

Bradford said a review of the email from State Police Lt. Anthony Schirillo had “no intent to implement or set any type of quota.” Bradford said the email was misinterpreted and improperly worded.

Previously, the governor had said such quotas are not permissible in Connecticut.
