    CT State Police union issues vote of no confidence in leaders amid ticketing scandal

    August 14, 2023 // Connecticut’s state police union has issued a vote of no confidence in its police leadership after lawmakers grilled state police leaders about thousands of potentially fake traffic tickets last month. The Connecticut State Police Union issued the scathing letter to their leaders and a vote of no confidence, while also filing an injunction to keep the names of the troopers involved sealed. The letter, dated Thursday, accuses Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner James Rovella and State Police Col. Stavros Mellekas of “foster(ing) an environment of mistrust” and “tarnishing the reputation of Connecticut State Police.”
