“We’ve Come From The Depths And Now We’re Reaching For The Heights”

Madison Police Chief Jack Drumm and his officers get rave reviews from town officials, business leaders, and town residents . "An eight cylinder car running on all nine cylinders."


Madison Police Chief Jack Drumm and the men and women he works with were the subject of an article that ran on the front page of the New Haven Register Monday.

“He just made such huge changes in the culture of the department. Not just for the police, but for residents,” said [Madison Chamber of Commerce] Executive Director Eileen Banisch. “On top of it, he’s a really nice guy.” Even resident Walter Lippman, who calls himself a “public advocate for citizens” and is known as a critic of many at public meetings, has only raves for Drumm ... Today, the department is “strong,” and much credit goes to Drumm for bringing a new standard of professionalism, Lippman said. He said officers used to train in Madison, then leave for bigger departments, but now the town is able to bring in trained police from the state or other departments.

I said nothing of the sort. I'm in favor of logic and meeting requirements. Not making up a bunch of non-sense with no value, such as what you've posted.

Buddies supporting their buddies is alive and well in Madison at our expense. The new culture of doing less with more is just plain stupid in my opinion.

Reply to. Pem McNerney 09/12/12 A bit of hyperbole, perhaps, Audrey? =) Answer. Hyperbole today, reality tomorrow at the do less with more culture. Walter whom was mentioned in this article looks to be a smart gentleman who will realize at some point that he is being used. In the business world, C.E.O.'s have the adage of keeping their friends close and enemies closer. Just pointing out the obvious.

Audrey...Audrey...it is so appearent that you dislike town officials, and the police. Do you attend meetings in town? How could you possiblly be un-biased in any remarks that you make. You should go to town meetings and get your facts straight. Audrey...Anita....Audrey.....Anita???

C. Angelo appears parinoid. Probably either a biased town official or cop.
