Heritage Village residents speak out about Community Resource Officer position proposeal

Dozens of Heritage Village residents spoke out during a recent public meeting on the position of Community Resource Officer, a member of the Southbury Police Department stationed in the retirement village.  The position has been vacant since 2020 and the Board of Selectmen and Police Union voted to change the position to that of detective.  Residents expressed concern about elderly women living alone, while others note that they don't have children in school and are taxpayers who should be getting this specialized service. The village represents 23% of the total population of town.  The calls for service over three years to the community was about 4-percent of total calls.
