AN ACT CONCERNING A RESIDENT STATE POLICEMAN PILOT PROGRAM

SUMMARY: This act requires the emergency services and public protection (DESPP) commissioner to appoint a resident state policeman to serve in a pilot program for assignment in two towns that (1) do not have local organized police or constabulary and (2) are within the jurisdiction of the same state police troop, but are not necessarily contiguous. Under prior resident state trooper law, the participating towns had to be adjoining.

The act requires towns participating in the pilot to enter into a memorandum of agreement with DESPP for resident state trooper services.

As under existing law, towns participating in the pilot pay 70% of regular costs and other expenses of maintaining a resident state trooper and 100% of overtime costs and fringe benefits directly associated with overtime costs.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 1, 2013
