Police Chief Tim Longo also spoke to the councilors on Monday night. Longo says there were no arrests following a November 9-1-1 call about activities on Hartman’s Mill Road. He says there was an administrative investigation that was completed in March.¬†¬†Longo (pictured) also told the council about his department’s use of community policing.
