January 26th, 2018 · 59 Comments · Law Enforcement, News and Events

From State’s Attorney Maureen Platt:  “Jayson Negron died tragically on May 9, 2017, after being shot by Officer James Boulay. However, in light of the foregoing, Officer James Boulay reasonably believed that the use of deadly force was necessary to defend himself from the use of deadly force–that being the Subaru operated by Jayson Negron.

January 18th, 2018 · 31 Comments · Analysis and Comment, Education, Law Enforcement, News and Events

It’s a rite of passage on OIB serenading the list of top 100 municipal wage earners. In 2017 the narrative is essentially the same as decades prior with city police officers dominating the list via overtime. Leading the pack in 2017 is an outlier, Jimmy Honis who retired as deputy chief after 47 years of […]

Council Members Urge Ganim To Reimburse City For Campaign-Related Security

January 13th, 2018 · 17 Comments · Analysis and Comment, City Budget, City Council, City Politics, Law Enforcement, News and Events, State Politics

About half the City Council, and the number appears to be rising, want Mayor Joe Ganim’s campaign for governor to reimburse the city for police security when he’s on the stump.

Perhaps it’s the fascination of audacity–Joe certainly does not lack for that–or maybe it’s the dearth of the field, on the Democratic side, at least.

January 3rd, 2018 · 34 Comments · Law Enforcement, News and Events, State Politics

Reporter Neil Vigdor was inside the wheels and captures the moment. Gee Joe, if you wanted rollout attention, you sure got it. Go get ‘em Viggy! State police said […]

Newton Pushes City Resident Hires

January 1st, 2018 · 34 Comments · City Council, Education, Firefighters, Law Enforcement, News and Events

About 30 percent of Bridgeport’s 702 public safety officers reside in the city, according to statistics provided by the city last May. It’s a figure that also parallels numerous cities around the country: most police don’t live in cities they serve. The same national survey showed that Black and Hispanic officers are considerably more likely to reside in […]
