Investigation Begins Into Connecticut State Police Officers Drinking At Office
SOUTHBURY, CONNECTICUT — A state police spokesman Tuesday confirmed an internal affairs investigation into an anonymous complaint that off-duty police officers drank alcohol in the police office at the Town Annex.
Lt. Col. Robert Duffy, commander of the state police Office of Professional Standards, has assigned investigators to determine whether the complaint has merit, said Lt. J. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman.
He said it doesn’t appear any criminal violations were committed. “We need to look at the allegations and see if there were violations of state police rules and regulations and/or Southbury Resident Trooper’s Office rules and regulations,” he said.
