Avon Police Officers Scolded For Anti-Obama Email

Two Avon Police Lieutenants, two sergeants, one officer, and one dispatcher were issued written reprimands for their participation in forwarding an email that smeared president-elect Barack Obama during the recent campaign.
The internal investigation into the use of the town’s email system for political purposes was prompted by a complaint from WTIC radio talk show host Colin McEnroe, who brought it to the town’s attention on Nov. 13.
