The Connecticut State Police Sponsor "Family Night"

The Connecticut State Police hosted their annual "Family Night" for the current CSP cadets and their families on Thursday night, August 21, 2014. Family Night allows the CSP cadets' families to visit the Academy and discuss and appreciate the many aspects of police training. The basic training program at the Connecticut Police Academy is approximately 22 weeks long and the recruits must successfully pass each of 17 different academic areas as well as successfully pass each of a series of different practical skill areas. In addition, recruits must complete a field and departmental training program consisting of a minimum of 400 additional hours. Upon successful completion of all portions of the program, the recruit officer is then issued an initial certification as a police officer in the State of Connecticut. Our group, the Eastern Vintage Police Car Association displayed their vintage and special interest police vehicles at the event and received many compliments and accolades. We would like to thank Trooper Len Widener and all of the academy staff for the invitation. Continued...

Eastern Vintage Police Car Association attends Meriden’s National Night Out against Crime Festival at Hubbard Park


Hubbard Park located in Meriden, Connecticut was packed Tuesday night for the City’s 10th annual celebration of National Night Out Against Crime. The event was organized by the neighborhood council in conjunction with the Meriden Police Department. The annual event is an effort to promote involvement of the City’s residents in crime prevention activities such as police-community partnerships, neighborhood awareness and camaraderie, and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The event is a local offshoot of America’s Night Out Against Crime, which began in 1984. “There really isn’t a better way to deter crime in our neighborhoods than with community policing,” Meriden Mayor Manny Santos said Tuesday. “I encourage everyone to get out, walk your neighborhoods, sit on your front porches, be observant. That really goes a long way.” Members of the Eastern Vintage Police Car Association were invited to attend by Meriden’s Sgt. John Mennone. John explained, “These types of events go a long way to promote the camaraderie between the police department and the citizens of Meriden. It is a very worthwhile event and we’re very happy your group and their vintage police cars could attend”. Continued...

Connecticut State Police Youth Week

As in years past, the Connecticut State Police and the American Legion join in a partnership to administer the annual 'State Police Youth Week'. The event is open to all 16 and 17 year old high school students within the state of Connecticut. Youth week, which is modeled after State Police recruit training, provides students an opportunity to help them understand and appreciate the training, duties and abilities of today’s law enforcement. The training, which runs for a week, will expose recruits to a variety of mental and physical challenges including patrol techniques, use of laser speed measuring equipment, accident investigation, emergency vehicle driving, firearms training, and criminal investigation. The recruits also participate in daily physical conditioning, daily inspections, drill & ceremony, and 5:15 a.m. reveille. The week concludes with the Warrior's Path safety & survival course followed by a Graduation ceremony. Warrior's Path represents the culmination of all of the skills and knowledge the recruits learned during the week. It is designed to emphasize the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity.

The 34th Annual Madison Exchange Independence Day Parade in downtown Madison, Connecticut was, as always, a big crowd pleaser. The parade theme this year wasAmerica's First Responders”. A tribute to all the many Police, Fire and Emergency Services personnel that instinctively put their own lives in harms way to help and protect others. This year’s Annual Independence Day Parade was held on Saturday, July 5, 2014, one day behind schedule because of threatening weather by the season’s first east coast hurricane, Arthur. The parade proceeded west on Boston Post Road (Route 1) from Samson Rock Drive to the West Wharf Road and ended at the Madison Surf Club, a 45-acre beach park overlooking Long Island Sound.  Continued…

The Torrington Police Department held its annual D.A.R.E Program Car Show on Friday, June 27, 2014. The event ran from 5:00pm through 9:00pm on Main Street in front of the Warner Theater in the town’s center. As in previous years, the show benefits the Torrington Police Department’s D.A.R.E. program. D.A.R.E., an acronym for “Drug, Awareness, Resistance, Education”, teaches students not just that they should refuse drugs and alcohol, and not participate in violent activities, but how to refrain from doing so. D.A.R.E. goes beyond traditional drug abuse and violence prevention programs. It gives children the skills needed to recognize and resist the subtle and overt pressures that cause them to experiment with drugs or become involved in gangs or violent activities. One hundred percent of the donations from the show goes to support the program which is taught to fifth grade students in Torrington’s four elementary schools: East School, Forbes School, Southwest School, Torringford School and Vogel-Wetmore School. The D.A.R.E. program and D.A.R.E. Car Show have been successively offered for more than two decades. Continued... 

On Wednesday, June 30, 2014, Albertus Magnus College held their 5th Annual Criminal Justice Summer Camp. The camp is geared towards incoming high school seniors and juniors interested in the field of criminal justice. It ran from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the Albertus Magnus Albertus Magnus Criminal Justice Campcampus in New Haven, Connecticut. Some of the events of the day included a mock crime scene investigation, introduction to the K-9 program, Fingerprinting 101 and eye witness testimonial. “In real life, fighting crime is not the same as they show it on TV?”, asked one of the camp’s students. Officer Ted Stockmon of the North Haven, Connecticut Police Department responded, “No, no it’s not.  It’s nothing like you see on TV. Solving a crime is about hard work and perseverance. In real life, crimes don’t get solved in thirty minutes, like you see on TV”.

The Criminal Justice camp is designed to encourage kids who are interested in law enforcement to think about the many aspects of the field that are available to them. Some other topics discussed were: Crime Scene Evaluation, Ethical Awareness, Police Support Services and a DNA session. Continued...
