NORWICH – The City of Norwich Finance and Personnel Committee held a meeting last night, discussing changes that may be in store for the police department.
Police Chief Joseph Angelino addressed the committee, explaining the potential for upcoming night desk closures at the department. Angelino stressed the point that this will not mean less police officers are working: “We will actually be putting additional officers on the streets,” he said.
New advancements in technology are making the closures possible. The police chief did not say when the changes would occur, but he did say the police department was ready for the change.
“The police station is able to close at anytime,” he said.
