Photo - DWI training with "wet labs". The Waterford Police Department is hosting driving while intoxicated training for 22 local police officers from 11 Police Departments. This is a week long intensified DWI training in addition to what the officers receive in the police academy. Waterford PD chose to send our newest/youngest officers to the training, as they make a large amount of car stops, resulting in more DWI arrests. This training includes a "wet lab", which has volunteers that drink various amounts of alcohol that the training officers test. The volunteers- not law enforcement officers- are driven to a bar and given liquor to drink. They are then driven to the police department and tested. After testing, the volunteers are driven home. The Waterford Police Benevolent Association paid for the wet lab participants, buying them liquor/ beer to reach a level of intoxication necessary for the testing. The levels are staggered, some participants are given more than others so different levels of intoxication can be tested. The Waterford PD believes in this training, and has provided Sergeant Balestracci, Officer Maffeo, and Officer Ferland as instructors. Additionally we have five officers participating in the training. Our thanks to the volunteers, bar Filomena's restaurant, instructors, and Waterford PBA for their help in this training, we appreciate it immensely.

Photo - Arnold Markle training - University of New Haven. Lieutenants Mahoney, Burton, Bellos, Detective Morgan, and Investigator Fedor are attending the 23rd annual Arnold Markle Symposium at the Henry Lee Institute in the University of New Haven. The focus this year is on elderly abuse and elder crime. As Waterford has a large elderly population, these symposiums are important to keep upon the latest laws and investigatory techniques. This picture shows Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman is making some remarks next to the panel, consisting of numerous law enforcement and political figures, as well as the son and daughter of deceased State's Attorney Arnold Markle. The Waterford Police Department does what we can to ensure that any elderly victims are treated fairly and judiciously. This symposium will help us in our mission "In the Community Interest", in this case dealing with our elderly community.
