I hate to be a Debbie Downer but I would rather have them arrest the HUNDREDS of shitbags related to motor vehicles instead ,,, running red lights and stop signs,driving unlicensed-uninsured-unregistered, driving drunk or high,hitting pedestrians ,hitting other vehicles,hitting buildings or other objects,driving kids with no car seats or seatbelts,driving stolen vehicles etc.etc.etc. Although it makes for a good sound bite on the news unfortunately this will all be a waste of energy,time and resources . I PROMISE YOU THIS KEV,,,,Just like a prostitution sting or a lizards tail ,,,,, THEY WILL “ALL” GROW BACK !!!!! I GIVE IT TILL JUNE,,,YOU’LL SEE AND HEAR !!!!

What is a I File?
Please let me know.
Tx You


An I-file is the term used for the opening of an Internal investigation, typically done on the order of the Chief of Police

The warm weather has brought the criminals out. Noise and bike disturbance is in Hartford as well as the suburbs. Selling of drugs and drug factories are rampant. The innocent bystanders are the ones who suffer the most. If you see or hear something call the Police.

I was born & raised in Hartford. It saddens me to see the city devolve the way it has.

I took a "Nostalgia Tour" of places I lived a couple weeks ago. Woodbine St-gone. The Laurel towers are there now. Owens st in what used to be called "Little Hollywood" not bad. Hillside Ave, across from Pope Park. Now there's a fence in front of the building, and gates on either side, bars on the windows. Saybrooke St, still a nice neighborhood.

As a previous poster mentioned, Apparently traffic signals & stop signs are considered suggestions. In the span of 15 minutes, I almost hit a kid on a dirt bike who didn't stop for the stop sign, almost got hit by an ATV that veered into my lane, and, was in the right turn lane when a car decided he wanted to turn right from the center lane.

I left Hartford in 1993. The gangs were warring, the trash all over the place was terrible, as was the unneeded noise. Car speakers that thump and rattled my windows, people hollering to each other across the street at 3 AM.

I realize that some things that I posted are endemic to city living, but I've lived in other cities that were nowhere as bad as Hartford.

You do have your "I love love Hartford" types and I can't fan dangle why. Likely the island barrios have emptied and moved in.

I once spoke to the traffic Lt asking for more enforcement of red light scoffers and his response was where and we will send out a team? I respond d that this was everywhere and a new focus must be implemented. He didn't understand that this problem was endemic to the whole city. Today, if you life in Hartford, you expect to be able to run a red with no expectation of arrest.
