Hartford Mayor Orders Independent Review of Police Division

I can’t claim familiarity with this issue at all.   But blogger Kevin Brookman has a bit of a niche on HPD reporting.  Pretty much the only police reporting in the city.  (I’ll clarify — police department reporting.) Check him out.

Anyhow, in a vague press release, the city said this:

Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra issued this statement today regarding the Hartford Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division:

“I have already met with Police Chief Daryl Roberts and have directed him to order an immediate independent review of the IAD.  As matters continue to unfold, I reserve my right to take additional action to preserve the integrity, trust, and public safety of the community.”

We asked for more explanation, and got this:

Internal personnel matters have come to the Mayor’s attention and require additional attention so the Mayor is taking diligent but aggressive action.

Hmm.
