Norwich PD working with antiquated radios.
**To avoid confusion this is a PETITION, please disregard any pop up donation request, if one appears, as it is automatically from/for the ipetiton website. No money is being requested nor collected for this as it is only a PETITION**
This petition is in place to draw the attention of the City of Norwich’s council. They have been disregarding the immediate need for the Norwich Police Department (Norwich , CT) to have an upgraded radio system for decades. These officers place their lives on the line everyday they put on the uniform, not knowing what that next call will be. Their system is so out of date and spotty some radio calls don’t go through and the officer must resort to using their personal cell to call dispatch. What is it going to take for the city council to realize this equipment is a necessity? PLEASE SIGN this petition and join the next city council meeting on 12/04 to voice your concerns; our voices must be heard. Please see the articles below, they show this has been an ongoing issue for years the council has been pushing aside. Is the safety of our officers not the top priority? I urge you to contact your local news outlets and representatives, something must be done!
