The Newtown Police Union opposes a town proposal that would have municipal emergency radio dispatching for 911, police, fire, and ambulance calls regionalized at a privately owned dispatching center in Prospect.
The town has proposed regionalization as a cost-savings measure which would reduce spending by approximately $149,000 annually.

To the Editor:
On Monday night approximately 100 police officers from 20 departments around the state had the opportunity to play a game of touch football on the field at MetLife Stadium. It was a wonderful way for our union to say thanks to our fellow officers for all the assistance given to us after 12/14.
