  • Police\Safety: Renee Dominguez 203.887.0618.  Mike Fumiatti (NHPD) Lou Decriencenzo (NHPD):  numbers still down with report of an arrest made for burglaries.  Federal grants awarded to support night shifts.  Always feel free to text or call Sgt Dominguez to report or discuss problems.  The dirt bikes are down: it’s really important to try to convey to the mayor that more general approaches need to be looked into, as the problem is not only city-wide, but state-wide and the Police can’t chase them.  Start toking to your alderman.
