Fireworks Reminder

The 4th of July season is upon us and public safety officials caution the general population against the dangers of fireworks. Each year nationwide, on average, there are 10,000 injuries, 3 deaths and 25,000 fires due to the use of illegal fireworks. Don't become a statistic!

The only personal-use fireworks permitted by law in Connecticut are sparklers and fountains.

Illegal devices to use, store or sell in Connecticut:
Bottle rockets, Chinese Lanterns, firecrackers, black cats, lady fingers, roman candles, smoke bombs, party poppers, snakes, professional display aerial shells shot from mortar tubes without a permit from the State Fire Marshal, M-80's, M-100's, Cherry Bombs, Blockbusters, Quarter Sticks and similar devices.

Illegal possession of explosives is a felony! Purchasing and transporting explosives across state lines is a crime!

HPD Body Worn Camera Pilot Launch

HARTFORD, CONN. (Feb. 4, 2019) – Forty Hartford Police officers will be wearing body worn cameras beginning February 4 as a part of a pilot program.

The officers chosen to wear the cameras for the pilot program are from the following divisions: patrol, traffic, the community response unit, the violent crimes unit, vice and narcotics, k-9 and community service officers.

The Hartford Police Department will run the pilot program for 30 days. Once the 30 days have passed, the Department begins phase two of the program consisting of an evaluation period. The evaluation period will review footage, policies, training and any technology concerns, which may arise with the goal of improving overall operations and department wide deployment.

“This is a great day for the Hartford Police Department, and for the City of Hartford.,” said Hartford Police Chief David Rosado. “We believe strongly in establishing trust with our community through transparency, and Body Worn Cameras will go a long way in helping with that. Body Worn Cameras have been successful around the country in increasing accountability, improving officer training, and helping to better document interactions between officers and the public. We are excited to roll out phase one of our Body Worn Camera program, and look forward to implementing them with all of our technology at the PD.”

Assistant Chief Jason Thody, who is in charge of implementing new technology in the Police Department has been working on the program diligently.

“This has been a program many years in the making, and one that involved the cooperation and participation of many people,” said Thody. “I’m proud of our Body Worn Camera policy and would like to thank everyone that worked collaboratively in crafting it. I look forward to completing this project in its entirety and believe it will have significant benefits for all parties involved.”

The Department is expected to have the program fully integrated by the end the 2019.
