A new survey of former New London police officers suggests that
the extraordinarily high turnover at the New London Police Department
is due to the mismanagement of Police Chief Margaret Ackley. Just
in the last 2 months, 13 officers have left the New London police
believe that the constant turnover and poor work environment at
the New London Police Department, which this survey links directly
to Chief Ackley, are major obstacles to keeping the public safe,”
said Jeffrey H. Matchett, Executive Director of AFSCME Council
15. Council 15 represents nearly 4,000 Connecticut police offices,
including those on the New London force. “Under Chief Ackley’s
watch, experienced officers are leaving New London in droves to
serve other communities”, according to the survey.
40 police officers that left during Chief Ackley’s tenure,
which began in June of 2009, were asked a number of questions
relating to their jobs at New London. When asked to identify factors
that led to their departures, more than six in ten officers ranked
a “harsh work environment,” among their top two choices.
Sixty-one percent selected “problems with the police chief,”
as their first or second most determining factor for leaving.
The former officers also indicated on the survey
that they considered their relationship with Police Chief Ackley
very poor, giving it a ranking of 2.6 on a 10 scale. This is contrasted
with satisfaction with their co-workers, direct supervisor, and
their union, all of which ranked above 7. “The results of
survey provide a compelling case for new leadership,” said
A press conference to discuss the full results of the survey is
currently being planned. An advisory will be disturbed when further
details are available.
