During some of the hottest weather we have seen in a long time, the Colts Park pool may need to be closed after being vandalized overnight. Chain link fence was ripped down and the vandals gained access to the pool area. entry was then gained to the building, apparently by the use of a key.
According to police sources, the number of people with keys to the building can't be determined but it may number over 200 people. Apparently the same key is used for all City pool facilities and the locks aren't changed when keys or lost or stolen or even after employees quit and don't return their keys.
Sounds like the same thing with Kupiec and the car keys, No accountability.
Graffiti left at the scene showed the initials T.H.P. which are the initials for another one of Hartford's social groups for young men, some call them gangs. T.H.P. is the "the hut project" which I am told is the social group for the housing project at 60 Wadsworth street.
60 Wadsworth Street was also the scene for gunshots fired last night.
Maybe it is time for a comp time detail to cool this area down, how about it Ken?
Also, apparently there are IP cameras around the pool that are recorded somewhere off site. Probably at MHIS. IP camera are different than regular analog security cameras as they use internet protocol (IP) and can be viewed off site via the internet. Why aren't theses cameras being watched in the Dispatch Center where someone could notice activity after hours instead of watching Judge Judy or Jeopardy on the big screen televisions mounted in the 911 Center
Hopefully someone would notice the kids throwing garbage into the pool at 11:00PM or see motion detector lights coming on to draw their attention.
Again, it is called management which we know there is very little of happening right now.
