FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MAY 21, 2018 We are approaching the time of year marked by many happy occasions, prom and graduation celebrations, as well as impending summer break. Inevitably, parents will be faced with the decision of whether to host a teen party where alcohol may be involved. We want to take this opportunity to remind parents of the potential pitfalls of these gatherings, as well as the resources and supports available. Times have changed, and the risks of hosting a party are now greater for both youth and homeowners. With social media, parties can get out of control quickly, making it impossible to manage the number of guests. The drinks have changed, as have the way our teens drink. Youth may also be under the influence of marijuana, prescription medications, or other illicit drugs - combining alcohol with other drugs can have catastrophic results. Drinking can result in property damage and theft, fights, accidents, alcohol poisoning, and sexual assault. We also know more now about how alcohol damages the developing teenage brain, which can have long-lasting effects. Parents need to know that Connecticut’s Social Host Law holds anyone in control of a property responsible for any underage drinking that occurs there; penalties include fines up to $2,000 per minor and potential jail time. Hosting parties of this nature can also result in civil lawsuits for injury or damages, and increased homeowner premiums. We ask Trumbull parents to resist the urge to host a party where teens can drink. The Trumbull Police Department operates an anonymous TipsLine where residents can report underage drinking and drug use by texting “TRPD” and the details to 274637 (CRIMES) or by using the TipSubmit app. With funding from TPAUD, the police department also operates additional patrols throughout town and has trained our officers in party dispersal techniques to ensure the safety of our teens. We also understand that sometimes even with the best planning and intentions, parents and teens find themselves in a situation where a party is out of control. We urge you to reach out to the police - the decision to not ask for help can have tragic consequences. Call the Trumbull Police at 911 or at the main dispatch number (203)261-3665 and ask for help. The police have training in how to deal with crowds of teens and can help you ensure that guests get home safely. If you suspect anyone is too inebriated or incapacitated, please call 911 immediately. Ultimately, the health and safety of Trumbull’s youth is paramount. One thing is clear - parents have the power to help our teens stay safe and free of alcohol and drugs. You are the greatest influence on your teens and their decisions. Help us stand the line against underage drinking and drug use. We wish you and your families a safe and happy summer.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - APRIL 23, 2018 - NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY APRIL 28th On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Trumbull Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will provide the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Anyone may bring pills for disposal to the parking lot of Middlebrooks School at 220 Middlebrooks Avenue, Trumbull. (The DEA cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Assisting us this year are the Trumbull Partnership Against Underage Drinking & Drugs (TPAUD) and The Trumbull Police Cadets. Last April, Americans turned in 900,386 lbs. (450 Tons) of prescription drugs at almost 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or the Take Back Day event, including additional municipalities participating and locations, visit the Drug Enforcement Agency’s website for the event at: https://takebackday.dea.gov

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 2018 TREE WORKER DIES FROM INJURIES AFTER FALL A worker from a local tree removal company died Saturday morning at approximately 9AM after falling from a tree that he was removing from the property of a Pinewood Trail home. The worker, a twenty eight year old male from Bridgeport, was wearing a safety harness as he climbed the tree to a height of approximately forty-five feet. He then began removing the top portion of the tree, when the tree broke off at its base. The tree, with the worker still attached, fell directly to the ground. Other members of the work crew immediately called 911 and attempted to assist him. Trumbull police and EMS arrived shortly after and treated the victim at the scene. He was transported to Bridgeport Hospital where he later died from his injuries. OSHA officials responded to the scene and assisted Trumbull Police with the investigation. The victim’s identity is being withheld pending family notification.

Chief Lombardo lauds officers' arrest of suspects in drive-by, home invasion cases.

Happy Easter 2018

Police captured two (2) Bridgeport men after they broke into a Trumbull home early this morning and threatened the resident with a handgun. The fleeing suspect vehicle was pursued by Trumbull police into Bridgeport, where it ran off the road and rolled over several times. The two men, Juan Rivera, age 30, and Marvin Allen, age 42, were both arrested for Home Invasion and various other charges. Both were treated and released for non-life threatening injuries at Bridgeport Hospital immediately following the incident. Police were initially alerted at about 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning by a 911 call from the home, which is located on White Plains Road near the Trumbull Center business area. Responding officers spotted the suspect vehicle, a blue Jeep Liberty, traveling south on White Plains Road and signaled for it to stop. The suspect vehicle fled at a high rate of speed into Bridgeport, where it ran off the road near East Main Street and Evers Street. The vehicle struck a stone wall in the front yard of a residence and rolled over several times. A Smith & Wesson .380 caliber handgun was recovered from the suspect vehicle at the scene of the crash. Trumbull Police detectives are continuing the investigation. They have reason to believe that the victim’s residence was specifically targeted by the suspects and was not randomly selected. No one in the victim’s home was injured during this incident. In addition to Home Invasion, Rivera was also charged with Criminal Possession of a Firearm, Burglary 1st Degree, Threatening, Unlawful Restraint and several other criminal and motor vehicle charges. He remained in custody on a $750,000 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned on April 9, 2018. Allen was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Home invasion, Burglary 1st, Threatening, Unlawful Restraint and several other criminal charges. He remained in custody on a $500,000 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned on April 9, 2018. The motor vehicle accident was investigated by Bridgeport Police, who were assisted at the scene by the Bridgeport Fire Department. No police vehicles were involved in the collision and no police officers were injured during the pursuit.

It is located on 150 acres of wooded land in Andover, Connecticut. Supervision is provided and the staff to child ratio is 1:6. Transportation is also provided for those attending.
