[CT] The People say NO to hiring a chief with domestic violence background


CT NOW and
Bridgeport First Candlelight Vigil

City Hall Annex, 999 Broad Street Bridgeport, CT
The City of Bridgeport is in the process of hiring a permanent police chief. Its Acting Police Chief, Anthony Armeno, has a record of domestic violence perpetration. CT NOW has been working hand-in-hand with Bridgeport First, a grassroots community organization, to prevent anyone with a history of domestic violence from becoming permanent chief of police. The effect on victims would be potentially devastating to know that the chief himself has a record of domestic violence perpetration as they picked up the phone to call 911.
I have met with Mayor Fabrizi to convey how strongly we feel that anyone who assumes the position of chief of police must not only be educated about, and sensitive to, the issue of domestic violence, but have an impeccable personal history in this regard.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Please show your support for victims and advocates by joining in this very important community event. Help us send a message that Connecticut will not tolerate domestic violence in Bridgeport or any other community in this state! [Source]
