Glad he was caught. Imagine what damage he would have done if he hadn't been found out. Kudos to the Shelton Police for a fine investigation.

not a very nice comment, but certainly brave considering you don't attach your name....nothing nice to say, should be quiet....
GREAT job, shelton PD....no throwing this under the carpet.....hope he gets twice the time of the "actor" in this crime, which should also be a long stretch....those who break the pledge "to protect and serve" do greater harm to the community than just the crime....they destroy the trust.....severe jail time should serve as a deterrent for others tempted to go astray...

this is exactly why people lose faith in our"finest". but he will get off light. not sure how fair that is. he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The same way we the people are prosecuted. he will have plenty of company in jail. he is sure to run into some of his perps. see how much he likes that.

And this is the type of person that is sworn in to protect this community. If only we knew all the other wrong doings he has done. I am sure this is not the only "wrong doing" he has done. Makes the good cops look bad. Another one that will serve time in the "country club correction facilities" that we pay for by the way. after all he will need to be protected from all the criminals in jail. We have good cops out there... don't we?

People should now that former Shelton Police Chief Robert Voccola hired Chickos among other questionable officers. His son Rocky junior left the Shelton force under a cloud. Hey I hear Junior was hired by Bridgeport Police and is attending their academy. I guess Bpt. did not learn from Shelton's mistake.

there is a reason he resigned before he got fired.. MY GUESS IS THAT IF HE CHOOSES TO APPLY FOR ANOTHER POLICE DEPT. IT LOOKS BETTER TO HAVE JUST RESIGNED INSTEAD OF LISTING THAT U WERE FIRED.. NO ONE WOULD HIRE HIM THEN.. AND IF U THINK HIM GETTING ARRESTED WILL MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE THINK AGAIN.. IM SURE TOMMY CHIKOS STILL HAS AN A.R.(ACCELERATED REHABILITATION) HE CAN USE, HE'LL HAVE A SHORT PERIOD OF PROBATION AND IF HE COMPLETES IT SUCCESSFULLY HIS RECORD WILL BE SWIPED CLEAN.. HE'S NO DUMMY, HE'S WORKED IN THE COURT SYSTEM AND KNOWS HOW IT WORKS..JUST THINK MAYBE ONE DAY HE'LL BE ALLOWED ONCE AGAIN TO "PROTECT AND STEAL.. OOPS I MEANT SERVE" YOUR COMMUNITY

tom chickos father was a stratford cop many moons ago with rocky voccola and his father was fired for helping out connected people and doing the same thing his son was doing. The apple dont fall to far from the tree. Tom Chickos is loser
