Tucker, Ill CONN-OSHA Director Connecticut Department of Labor Division of Occupational Safety and Health 38 Wolcott Hill Road Wethersfield, CT 06109 RE: Notice of Intent to Contest Citation and Notification of Penalty Inspection No. 1307561, Citation 1, Item 1 Dear Commissioner Jackson and Mr. Tucker: The Town of Wallingford, Police Department, hereby notifies you that, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes §31-377, it contests the Citation and Penalty, Citation 1, Item 1, attached hereto and made a part hereof. The Town of Wallingford contests the Citation and Penalty as follows: 1. CONN-OSHA has not promulgated any regulation, rule or pronouncement specifically requiring and defining a mandatory wear policy for police body armor; 2. The Town of Wallingford Police Department implemented a mandatory wear policy for "high-risk tactical operations"; 3. The Police Department provides all of its officers with body armor and mandates its use during those operations; 4. The Town of Wallingford objects to being cited and fined for a violation of an unarticulated requirement. CONN-OSHA should first advise agencies of the requirement, provide the parameters of the requirement and provide agencies with notice and an opportunity to come into compliance before being cited and fined;


Commissioner Scott D. Jackson June 14, 2018 Page Two

5. CONN-OSHA has not, in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes ยง31371 (a), adopted any regulations relating to a mandatory-wear policy for body armor; 6. The Wallingford Police Department is accredited by the Accreditation Division of Police Officers and Standards and Training Council (POST) and its current policy regarding mandatory wear is compliant with POST Standard 1.73; and 7. The failure to provide a clear directive regarding this issue directly impacts the collective bargaining agreements and, without a definitive standard, will result in conflicts between management and its employees. Please commence the review process by the Connecticut Occupational Health and Safety Review Commission. Very truly yours,
