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.
