In my campaign to remain as a member of the Suffield Police Commission, I would continue to support a policy of ongoing open dialog with the Chief, new Captain as well as the members of our outstanding Police force. I would continue prioritize what expenditures take precedence based on greatest need. I will continue to be vigilante as a member of this oversight body that State statutes be followed when it comes to enacting police policy and enforcement of state law.
