Senator Chris Murphy was joined Friday by Waterbury Police Chief Vernon L. Riddick Jr., Deputy Chiefs William Covel and Fred Spagnolo, state Reps. Jeff Berger, Geraldo Reyes Jr. and Larry Butler, Naugatuck Mayor Pete Hess, and Rick Dunne from the Council of Governments for a press conference at the Waterbury Train Station. They spoke of efforts to increase Waterbury Police and MTA Police patrols at the station parking lot in the wake of a series of car break-ins earlier this year. All parties agreed that patrolling the area is a priority and the two police agencies are coordinating their efforts. Chief Riddick noted that after the recent arrest of a suspect, there have been no reported break-ins the entire month of June. A strong rail system is key to Mayor O'Leary's plans for revitalizing our Downtown and having a safe commuter lot is an important part of those plans. Berger spoke of the state's pending plans to improve the lot and its infrastructure. Thanks to all who came out. ... See MoreSee Less
