Officer Knox Named To Statewide Panel

Thomas MacMillan Photo Officer Jillian Knox won’t be helping only victims of New Haven crimes anymore.

That’s because Gov. Dannel Malloy has appointed Officer Knox, head of the New Haven police department’s Victim Services Unit, to a new crime victim privacy panel.

The new task force will make recommendations on balancing the privacy of crime victims with the public’s right to obtain information about crimes.

Knox has been with the New Haven police since 2002. She’ll be one of 17 members of the panel, which includes law enforcement personnel, academics, freedom of information officials, and journalists. The group is required to submit a report of recommendations by Jan. 1, 2014.
