No Confidence Vote On Horizon For State Police Leaders
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The results of a no confidence vote against Connecticut state police leaders by state troopers are set to be announced.
Officials with the National Troopers Coalition are scheduled to count the ballots Tuesday morning and announce the results around mid-day. Ballots were mailed to more than 1,000 state police union members earlier this month and were due back Monday afternoon.
The state police union leadership asked members to vote no confidence against public safety Commissioner Reuben Bradford and Col. Danny Stebbins over management decisions union leaders allege jeopardize the safety of troopers and the public. One of those decisions was the consolidation of three dispatch centers in northwestern Connecticut into one center in Litchfield.
Bradford and Stebbins deny the union’s allegations, and Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is supporting their decisions.
