New Haven (WTNH) _ More allegations of money misconduct within the ranks of the New Haven Police Department. Several more New Haven officers are at the center of an investigation focusing on just where department dollars really ended up.
"I have a very intensive internal affairs investigation on-going into several members of the department in regards to the detective bureau," Chief Francisco Ortiz of the New Haven Police Department said.
In particular, their use of the informant fund -- money set aside to pay people who help police officers with investigations. It's often hundreds -- even thousands of dollars -- and at least one long time veteran of the force. Detective Clarence Willoughby is under scrutiny. But there are others and the fund has now been frozen.
"We're gonna audit the entire informant fund going back as far as we can in regards to the integrity of those funds," Ortiz said.
On the heels of this most recent allegation of corruption, news surfaced that Assistant Chief Herman Badger will retire in January. Badger has been Ortiz's right-hand man for sometime. Before becoming Assistant Chief, he was in charge of the detective division since 2003.
The mayor says the timing is just coincidental.
"The issue that he presented to me when he came to see me was purely personal, financial and family-related, I'm not aware of anything else with regard to his departure," New Haven Mayor John Destefano said.
The State's Attorney's Office is now looking into the workings of the detective bureau -- and possible criminal charges pending for more than one high-ranking member of the force. All of this has people in the community questioning those sworn to protect and serve.
"It's not right, they're supposed to be protecting the people and it seems like they're helping themselves," Teddy Derrien of New Haven said.
"I believe there's a lot of corruption in the police department, I'm glad they got the ones that they did already and I'm sure there's a lot more running around there," Carmella Stankiewicz of New Haven said.
Mayor Destefano says they're hoping to have the new chief named by late March or early April. He says he called Yale personally to ask them to hold off on Chief Ortiz coming over to work for them and they agreed.

Should Connecticut State Police Officers be offering married women $10,000 to sleep with targets of their secret Connecticut State Police "Enemies List" so citizens can be falsely arrested and imprisoned to shut them up? Is this more abuse of the unlimited, taxpayer paid "Informants Fund" [click for more]

Do you want to score drugs?

Well, Connecticut cops might have the strongest drugs at the best prices. Want to score "jail bait"? Again you might want to ask a Connecticut Police Officer. There are a greater percentage of good officers, why are they so often silent?

Connecticut State Police and police in Connecticut towns and cities have long had a questionable relationship with "informants". These informants are drug dealers, vandals, prostitutes, thieves, fences, organized crime, wayward teens, and common criminal parasites.
Police officers can help themselves to informant funds as they aren't closely monitored. Informants can often keep half the drugs they score and half the money they use to set up other, bigger fish, so the cops get a big "Hollywood" bust, confiscating as much cash, assets, and property as possible. Officers are also required to "make a mark in the book" meaning they are required to make arrests on a schedule. If an officer doesn't have anyone under investigation, the easier way to keep making marks in the book is to set citizens up. [click for more on this theme]

[click here] for my 9-15-01 letter to President George W. Bush. I was so fed up with the Connecticut State Police threatening me, telling me I was kicked out of Connecticut, and that they would not protect and serve me because I was stupid for buying property in a crime area. Police and there informants terrorized me out of [these properties] and I was railroaded to prison for having resisted being mugged on my property 10-11-01, notice the two dates mentioned in this paragraph.

Stephen Murzin was stabbed 13 times by a felon on probation, a police informant. 2 others were also stabbed in the melee. A judge didn’t even violate the felon on probation for 3 counts of attempted murder. [click for proof] Stephen Murzin had made a police misconduct complaint. This is proof there is illegal collusion between judges and police in Connecticut court cases. Why should police be able to pay informants $10,000 cash to kill citizens and officers don't have to fear prison?
