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

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
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.
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.
On Wednesday, June 30, 2014,

interested in the field of criminal justice. It ran from
on the Albertus Magnus
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
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
