FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
December 18, 2015: Hartford, CT – The Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) and Civil Justice Foundation (CJF) are proud to support the 2015 Hartford Gun Buyback Program. As in 2013, CTLA worked in conjunction with Law Enforcement, Community Agencies, the States Attorney, Hospitals and the physicians of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in helping to make our communities safer.
Participating at the press conference to announce the 2015 program, CTLA Past-President Michael J. Walsh commented on CTLA’s opportunity to participate in this collaboration; “The Hartford police, despite all their good work, cannot do this alone. Those of us who work in Hartford, and live in the suburbs, we just can’t drive into Hartford on Monday mornings, and drive out on Friday afternoons, and act like we have no responsibility for the City that supports us. We need to be active participants in helping to solve the City’s problems. We hope this will be one small step forward in a continued effort to make Hartford the strong and safe City that we all know it to be.”
