Town of Windsor Addresses Anonymous Letter

In the late spring, Windsor’s Town Manager and the town’s presiding Mayor received an anonymous letter alleging concerns over gender equity internal to the Windsor Police Department. The letter recently resurfaced, having been received through postal mail by various residents and then posted to social media by some who received the letter.

Although town officials don’t know where the letter originated, they confirm the letter refers to incidents that were under previous investigation.

“Whether internal or external, we take all allegations seriously with a thorough, objective and prompt response,” says Town Manager Shane Hale. “These allegations were immediately investigated and disciplinary action taken where warranted.  In fact, the majority of the allegations had already been addressed prior to receiving the original letter. Following the investigation, we attempted to put this to rest, but since we cannot comment on specific personnel matters, apparently someone still erroneously believes that this is unsettled.”

As for the letter resurfacing, the Town Manager can only speculate. “We don’t know where the letter originated so we can’t tell the author directly that it has been addressed.”
