Nepotism is 1 thing but putting unqualified cops on the streets is another. Stratford PD hired a seizure prone officer, I heard he had an accident on duty while having a seizure. When this officer had they accident are there drug tests given right after the accident just go tests are given to drivers with a CDL license.

I believe there was another alleged"UNQUALIFIED" person also..someone allegedly tried to sneak in..Nepotism is NOT the issue UNQUALIFIED IS!
