From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
The response by 46 city police officers to a “chaotic” situation after a noise complaint about a birthday/pre-Halloween party in 2017 has resulted in a finding that five officers and a civilian detention officer used excessive force and that 10 officers were not truthful about their actions, an internal police investigation has found.
In all, the report finds Bridgeport Police Department rule violations and possible criminal activity by 17 police officers and two civilian detention officers.
The 405-page report by the city’s Office of Internal Affairs was released to Hearst Connecticut Media on Wednesday, following a Freedom of Information request in January.
