To the Editors:
I have an idea to manage the need for more space for the police department — reduce the number of police officers so they can fit in the current headquarters. Wilton’s population has been stable for 20 years. Our crime rate is low. Using data from the Connecticut General Assembly website (cga.ct.gov/2011/rpt/2011-R-0194.htm) and population statistics from Wikipedia, Wilton has more officers for our population than all our surrounding communities except Westport (see table below).
