Go Ahead, East Haven: 'Ask the Chief'

East Haven Interim Police Chief Brent Larrabee is blogging on East Haven Patch — and wants to answer your questions!

It's the first Monday of the month, and that means it's time for East Haven Patch readers to "ask the chief."

East Haven Interim Police Chief is one of the more recent additions to our growing Local Voices section of bloggers.

Larrabee, who was by on Feb. 15, now writes a blog once a month. The monthly posts will serve as a vehicle to answer readers' questions about the .

On the first Monday of each month, we'll publish an article asking readers to post their questions in the comments section. Questions can also be emailed to askthechief@easthavenpolice.com.

Then, we'll close submission on Wednesday at 6 p.m. And from there, we'll pick four of those questions for the chief to answer in his next blog.

So do YOU have a question? Well, go ahead — and ask the chief!

Pam, Let me help you with your statement/question: emphatically NO! Where on earth would one come up with the assumption that Police Commissioners have access to the Police Department safe? Then again, little you have said to date has been based on fact, grammatically correct, accurate or true. It appears you love to feed the rumor mill. Newsflash - if things you stated were factual you wouldn't have to put so much effort into attempting to create distractions or circulate rumors. What is the benefit to making things up, it doesn't make the facts go away?

I'm not sure why asking a question that has puzzled me for over 8 years is being negative. And I am certainly not asking about someone's lunch break. I am asking specifically about officers bringing their patrol cars home and if this is normal practice. When we lived in New Haven, we had two neighbors on our street who were NHPD, one a patrolman and one higher up, Sargent I think (sorry I can't remember) and neither of them ever brought their PD vehicles home. Even for lunch. It was merely a question. I have the utmost respect for those who put their lives on the line for our safety every day. If this is a practice that is not allowed, then perhaps now is the time to end it, if it is allowed then my question is answered. I have no issue with either answer.

Where did he ever "make a threat again the people in East Haven to shoot them"? What are you talking about, Pamela?

Pamela, It appears an arrest has been made in that case today. Check your facts, seems you're wrong again with your accusations.

Becki, my response wasn't directed to you. It was to Mr. Hoff, who had a comment posted, but now it is gone. He was asking why there was a subway bag in a patrol car, and if they were shopping while on duty. My response was that perhaps they were having lunch. I apologize if you thought I was talking to you. Apparently Mr. Hoff saw how ridiculous and childish his comment was and deleted it.
