Todd Fedigan (second from left), president of the State Police Union, and Andrew Matthews, general counsel and executive director of the union (third from left), prepare to address the state Judiciary and Public Safety committees during a forum on state police traffic stop data on July 26, 2023. The report, released by the Connecticut Racial Profiling Prohibition Project, showed thousands of traffic tickets were falsified between 2014 and 2021, skewing race and ethnicity data.

Master Sgt. Todd Fedigan (second from left), president of the State Police Union, and Andrew Matthews, general counsel and executive director of the union (third from left), prepare to address the state Judiciary and Public Safety committees during a forum on state police traffic stop data on July 26, 2023. The report, released by the Connecticut Racial Profiling Prohibition Project, showed thousands of traffic tickets were falsified between 2014 and 2021, skewing race and ethnicity data.

Connecticut police unions fight back against allegations they falsified traffic tickets. Some Nutmeggers say “no” to Golden State emission standards. The Long Island Rail Road speeds up service, and recreational marijuana licenses in New York fizzle out.
