Too many violent incidents , including shutdowns (youth gangs and such), in last few years.

This happened at 3:15 AM, meaning they just happened to be in the mall parking lot at that hour. They very easily could have been in front of Whole Foods too.

I do get what you’re saying though. The Post mall, like other malls in the region (Trumbull, Meriden, Waterbury) stopped trying to attract middle and upper middle class clientele and allow low rent pop-up stores to take over. Its unfortunate.

That said, and because of this, the communities that house these facilities need to start having it staffed, 24 hours a day, by officers. This is done in Danbury, West Farms and in other upscale malls in the country. They don’t have the same violent incidents you see happening in Milford and Manchester.

No, they do not. The police are responsible to maintain safety regardless of it is privately or publicly owned. I can only guess cities that have mall issues donít have a full time officer overseeing the property (I donít know if Milford does). Danbury does.

Thereís a little police substation in Milford. I know in some cases businesses will pay extra for more police coverage.

Usually that’s for details and special events (Apple store usually hires when new products are rolled out, etc). They’ll hire an off duty police officer to oversee the place. The community should make it a priority to have an officer assigned to the mall property every day, if they don’t already.

I wonder if their substation is manned 24 hours. Even if it were, though, that wouldn’t have prevented the above from happening since it happened in the middle of the night. I quickly skimmed the article but it didn’t look like there was any specific connection to the mall.

That is what troubles me. Not one incident, but several, and I do wish they would allow fewer buses to stop there, plus no unaccompanied children under 18 period.
