PD officers adopt new shift changes

NORWICH – The Norwich Police Department will be welcoming in the new year with a cooperative effort by adopting a new shift schedule in hopes of making officers more safe and giving them more time with their families.

The City of Norwich and Police Benevolent Association have agreed upon a new shift plan that will call for the department to work 12 hour days without getting paid any additional overtime.

The new 12-hour shift will reduce the number of total shifts in a day and place additional officers together for larger blocks of time. There will be approximately 4 to 5 officers working each shift under the new plan. This system allows officers to work several days in a row and they’ll receive consecutive days off. Half of the officers at a time will also receive every other alternating weekend off. Under the old schedule officers only received a weekend off every seven weeks. This is the same system employed by the New State Troopers.
