I like the idea of outsourcing police. This would save money and allow us to get true professionals. The current Norwalk police department is a disaster. They are a bunch of children that live out of town that no other department wants. They are more concerned with overtime for looking at a hole in the ground than catching a criminal..

Haven't had the good fortune to read your posts in a long time. You make some very good points as usual. The points that you bring up are many of the same issues that were raised at the Mayors night out. The unfortunate thing is I would not expect this Mayor to make any improvements to the police department. He is the one that allowed it to become the mess it is today when he was chief.

And then the brain dead among us elected him Mayor.

Excuse me, but could Robby or Ken P tell any of us exactly HOW a private police force could have prevented this occurrance?

Just more posturing and blather from individuals who haven't a clue. They are the ones who are a joke, not the officers who put themselves in harm's way every day of the week.

Nobody has a perfect police force, and it's highly debatable whether crime is really out of control. Chances are that reporting of what has always occurred has gotten much better.

They should wake up every day being thankful that being stupid isn't illegal.

Actually the cops on the beat are a waste. A bunch of lazy children that could not get hired by any other town. They are not qualified to be mall guards.

I agree a private police force is the way to go .This is the best way to get rid of the current failures of the NPD

It's time Norwalk looks into outsourcing the police to a professional private company.

The out of control Norwalk crime epidemic continues. This is what happens when a town ihas a police department that is considered a joke.
