Connecticut needs to change state policy to support law enforcement, enforce reasonable criminal justice laws, and keep the public safe. Since the weakening of criminal justice laws and a police reform law that handcuffed police, serious crimes in Connecticut have skyrocketed. Car thefts more than doubled in Greenwich and New Canaan. Shootings increased significantly in Stamford. And homicides rose by 35 percent across the state.
Ryan has co-introduced laws to untie the hands of our police and change the police bill so that they can keep us safe. He supports changing our criminal justice statutes so that people who commit several felonies, including stealing cars, will not continue to see zero consequences for their actions. For all these reasons and more, Ryan has been repeatedly endorsed by our local police organizations and will always work to keep the public safe.
