Six Chiefs Team Up

Six chiefs sat down to compare notes, and figure out how to fight crime more effectively.
The six chiefs met last week at the invitation of New Haven’s Chief Dean Esserman, who’s launching a “Five City Initiative.”
Essermen met on Thursday with police chiefs from Bridgeport, Hartford, Stamford, Waterbury and Yale University. They shared information and discussed best practices in policing. The meeting included lawyers from the state and U.S. Attorney’s offices and professors from University of New Haven and Yale.
“Chief Dean Esserman, speaking of the strong work relationship the New Haven Police Department has with the local Police Departments in the region, then hopes to build a similar strong working relationship with the big city agencies across the state,” said police spokesman Officer Dave Hartman.
“The premise behind these meetings, is to share valuable information on crime reduction techniques, statistical analysis, innovative policing trends and the future of policing in Connecticut.”
In other police news, cops are looking for victims of electronics thefts to come forward.
According to Hartman:
“Following Tuesday’s successful undercover sting operation to seize stolen and misappropriated cell phones and other personal electronic devices, detectives from the department’s Robbery/ Burglary Unit face the lengthy task of inventorying thousands of such devices.
“The process to identify the stolen phones and pair them to specific cases is difficult. The vast majority of people who’s phones were stolen hadn’t recorded the devices’ serial number.
“The department has fielded many calls from past victims - interested to know if their property had been recovered during the operation. People should be aware that we are processing the inventory as quickly as possible but the sheer number of devices suggest this will take weeks or longer.
“1. Was the theft, robbery or burglary reported to Police?
2. To which agency was it reported? (New Haven Police or other jurisdiction?)
3. The Police Department Case Number (regardless of jurisdiction)
4. The type, brand, model and description of the device (eg: a black i-Phone 5s)
5. The devices’ serial number or item number
6. Your contact information
“This information - forwarded in this manner, will be very helpful.”
