Increasing The Police Beat In New Haven

Oct 10, 2011

I sometimes worry that  our show is too Hartford-centric, so I'm thrilled that everything we're talking about today happens south of Middletown.

First we're talking to New Haven's police chief about a return to good old-fashioned foot and bike patrols, back almost literally by popular demand. Police Chief Frank Limon says walking the beat is a good way for officers to connect directly with city reisdents. He hopes increased patrols will help reduce crime.

Then it's west to Fairfield and Bridgeport where, contrary to what you've been told, the first flying machine may have flown.

Last comes The Sack, our mailbag and grab-bag feature.

We'll read a few recent emails and tell you briefly about a light and projection festival coming to New Haven.
