State Police Union Says There’s A Ticket Blitz Tomorrow
EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Leaders of the Connecticut State Police Union are bashing what they’re calling ticket-writing quotas by management and have revealed the location of the next increased traffic enforcement effort.
Union officials held a news conference in East Hartford on Wednesday to protest the quotas as illegal under state law.
They said troopers want to make state roads as safe as possible, but that can be done without quotas and competitions.
The state’s commissioner of emergency services and public safety, Reuben Bradford, determined this week that there was no illegal quota system in place, after Gov. Dannel P. Malloy asked him to review the matter.
The union announced that the next “ticket blitz” enforcement effort will be in the Danielson area all day Thursday.
