Rick Stromoski – Police Commission

Img0257 Rick StromoskiI would help support a policy of ongoing open dialog with the Incoming Chief, new Captain as well as the rank and file members of the Police force. I would prioritize what expenditures take precedence based on greatest need. I would insist as a member of this oversight body that State statutes be followed when it comes to enacting police policy and enforcement of state law. That includes seeking independent 3rd party investigations when a situation warrants it and weeding out conflicts of interest. I would seek counsel of the Town attorney when in doubt regarding police commission procedures. I would keep all interaction between the Commission and Police Department at a professional level and follow the ethical guidelines as stated in our town charter.

I think the priority of this Commission would be to help make Suffield’s Police department as professionally prepared as any other Town of our size in order to keep our officers as well trained, safe and equipped as possible.
