⚠️ Here is your warning... The next wave of “U Drive. U Text. U Pay” begins - Cell phone enforcement initiative. ⚠️ Brookfield, Conn. – The Brookfield Police Department, along with the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Office, has announced today the continuation of the “U DRIVE. U TEXT. U PAY.” campaign. Through this initiative, officers will be cracking down on motorists who text, talk, or distract themselves with a hand-held mobile phone while driving. “Texting and driving is a public safety crisis. Our mission is to save lives and protect the public. Enforcing texting and driving laws is a critical priority for our department,” said Captain Pete Frengs. “Starting August 1st, the community will see an increased and highly visible law enforcement presence on our roadways with a focus on safety. Our Officers will be stopping and ticketing anyone who is endangering the public due to texting and driving. If you text and drive, you will pay.” During the first wave of this campaign, in April 2018, more than 10,000 citations were issued to motorists who chose to ignore Connecticut’s distracted driving laws. While this is a start, there is still more work to be done. The second run of this two-part campaign will go from August 1st to August 15th. Throughout the campaign, Brookfield Police Department, will mobilize by adding special patrols aimed at catching distracted drivers – especially those on their phones. Over 50 law enforcement agencies, including both state and local police, who were previously involved in the April 2018 campaign, will again be participating. The special patrols that will be running during this campaign are funded by Connecticut’s special distracted driving prevention funds. Connecticut qualifies for this federal funding source through a mix of tough laws and a proven track record in strong enforcement of distracted driving laws. Over $9.1 million has been awarded to the state over the last three years specifically to fund campaigns like this one. Under Connecticut’s cell phone and texting law, violations involve heavy fines, ranging from $150 for a first offense, $300 for a second violation, and $500 for each subsequent violation. In 2016, there were 3,450 distracted driving related deaths and in 2015 an estimated 391,000 were injured in distracted driving motor vehicle crashes nationally.

***Danbury Investigates overnight vehicle thefts*** Hey Brookfield! This is why we continue to remind you to lock your vehicles and to never leave your keys or other valuables inside either. If you choose to leave your car unlocked, you will become these criminals new best friend. They are looking to commit crimes of opportunity. They are not looking to break glass and make lots of noise. They are looking to sneak into your driveway under the cover of darkness and check your car doors to see if any are open. If they are open, they take anything of value. If your keys are in the car, they will take your car for a joy ride (often destroying the vehicle by the time it is recovered). If your car is locked,TYPICALLY, they move on to your neighbor. Protect yourself, secure your belongings. Don’t make yourself a victim. -BPD #LockItUpBrookfield

Again, a special thank you to Albert of Future Subnets for making sure our Canine Unit is fully protected with GPS capabilities!

Okay Brookfield, it’s that time again! We are reminding you to LOCK your vehicles. Take a moment right now to double check and ensure your vehicle is locked. As if tomorrow doesn’t already have a bad reputation, waking up to start your week without your vehicle will only add to your “case of the Mondays”. #LOCKITUPBROOKFIELD -BPD 203-775-2575

After you’ve enjoyed the fireworks over #CandlewoodLake and you get home, LOCK your car doors!! #LOCKITUPBROOKFIELD -BPD 203-775-2575

Brookfield it’s 9:30 PM. If you’re in for the night, is your car locked? Take a second right now to double check. Criminals have been taking advantage of your complacency by stealing items from within your unlocked cars and for those generous enough to leave the keys in the car... well they’ve been taking your car for a joyride and to commit other crimes elsewhere. Don’t be a victim, lock it up! Double check now. #LOCKITUPBROOKFIELD -BPD 203-775-2575

It’s bedtime are your vehicles locked? If your aren’t positive, take a second right now and check! Don’t fall victim! Remove your valuables, lock your doors and NEVER leave your keys inside the vehicle. We have been dealing with stolen vehicles (most often the keys are left inside the unlocked car) and the theft of contents from within the unlocked cars. These suspects are specifically targeting unlocked vehicles. They are being quiet, avoiding vehicle alarms and the sound that comes from breaking windows. If you see something, say something! Brookfield... let’s stop giving these criminals reasons to operate here. “Lock it up!” - Jeremy Grey & John Beckwith -BPD 203-775-2575 #NightlyLockup #LOCKITUPBROOKFIELD

THE STILL RIVER GREENWAY CLEANUP updated 6/28/18 We are pleased to announce that two local firms, Wright Tree Service and Lewis Tree Service, generously have agreed to donate their time and equipment to begin cleaning up the Still River Greenway. Our current plan is for work to begin July 5, focusing first on the Greenway between the Police Station and downtown. We hope to open this section to the public on July 8. We are still working on the plan to clear the Greenway from the Police Station south. We will provide timely updates for both phases of work. We thank both of these firms for volunteering to help the town recover from the disaster and open this popular walkway.
