How is this guy even on the streets?  Connecticut's courts are failing us. Guzman appaently has over 14 felony arrests. The list below are his current cases pending at GA 14. the Lafayette Street Court. These are only the cases pending, never mind his convictions already.He should be locked behind bars and this menace should be removed from our streets, no "second chances", he has clearly shown he can not conform to our laws

And all that because officer Borkowski - unlike many other officers - doesn't take crap from nobody. Officer Borkowski is doing an excellent job.


I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately, Officer Borkowski is one of the Business Service Officers (BSO) that is probably going to be bumped from his position due to budget issues and a lack of hiring by the previous administration. Imagine the damage that potentially could have been done if all those guns remained on our streets and Officer Borkowski wasn't there

Officer borkowski is top notch. Some others just wanna work pjs and drive around in an unmarked to get food. Chief rovella you hear me now. Officer borkowski must stay in his area. That is an order!!!!
If you need to cut some flesh, get rid of marfella and teddy. Those guys hav not done much lately except work pjs and complain.
Borkowski sets the bar.
Those parkville guys hustle also. Chop chop
