BRIDGEPORT — The Board of Police Commissioners has granted Assistant Police Chief Karen Krasicky's request for retirement and approved her pension. Krasicky, 49, a 27-year city police veteran, will now lead the police department in Plymouth, a small suburb of Waterbury. She had been an unsuccessful contender for chief jobs in several other communities over the last year. She also planned to be a candidate for the vacant chief's post in Bridgeport. That would have put her in competition with acting chief Anthony Armeno, with whom she previously had a tumultuous personal relationship. Police Department documents show that Armeno was disciplined by the department in 1996 because of allegations that he beat and harassed Krasicky during a six-year personal relationship. Over the course of the relationship between Armeno and Krasicky, the documents show that Krasicky filed numerous complaints against Armeno... [Full article here]

PLYMOUTH -- No matter where one stood on the search for a new police chief the last 15 months, it was hard to find anyone Friday night who wasn't happy that the search was finally over. On Friday night, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal swore in former Bridgeport Assistant Police Chief Karen Krasicky as this town's fourth police chief... A touching moment during the ceremony was Krasicky's mother, Mary Krasicky, pinning the chief's badge to Karen Krasicky's uniform. Mary Krasicky said her daughter should have been named acting chief in Bridgeport, but she's glad Karen finally had her dream come true. "I'm so happy for her," Mary Krasicky said. "She waited a long time for this and she finally got it. I told her to hang in there. I'm glad she got this job." Bridgeport Mayor John M. Fabrizi appointed Anthony Armeno as acting chief after former Police Chief Wilbur Chapman resigned in January. There were a couple of surprises for Karen Krasicky during the ceremony. One was the attendance of her brother, Philip Krasicky, a physics professor at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y... Another surprise was a plaque that was given to Krasicky from Bridgeport Police Capt. William Chapman. The plaque was in appreciation for her dedication and service to the Bridgeport Police Department, where she spent her entire 27-year career before coming to Plymouth. "She contributed an awful lot to the department," Chapman said. "She's sharp, she's innovative, she brings new ideas into the department. She has the respect of everyone in the department because of her personality. All around, she's a very, very good person, so we'll definitely miss her"... [Full article here]
