In an effort to thwart scammers, BPD is asking for the public to beware of your own phone. The scam alert was posted to the Brookfield Police Department Facebook page on Monday (1/2/23) and reads:


If you are contacted by phone, email, or text message by someone claiming to be from your bank, your credit card company, your phone/internet provider, or your utility company, please don’t respond to them directly.
If they claim they are calling from, for example, your bank, look up the phone number for the bank and call the bank yourself.
If the caller claims to be from your credit card company, call the number on the back of your credit card.
Don’t click on any links in any emails or text messages, and that includes links that indicate you should click them in order to “opt-out” of any future messages.
One of the telltale signs of a scam is a false sense of urgency. The scammer doesn’t want you to think about what’s happening, they want you to worry about your electricity getting shut off, or your bank account being frozen, or something similar, so they try to convince you something bad will happen if you don’t act immediately.

Cool, the world isn't terrifying at all.We talked about this on the I-95 Morning Show Wednesday (1/4/23), listen below.

4 Things CT Residents Should Know if They Love to be Naked

According to World Population Review, the State of CT Defines it's clothing laws in the following way:

Public indecency (Class B misdemeanor): A person is guilty of public indecency when he performs any of the following in a public place: 1) An act of sexual intercourse as defined in subdivision (2) of section 53a-65; or (2) a lewd exposure of the body with the intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desire of the person; or (3) a lewd fondling or caress of the body of another person. "Public place" means any place where the conduct may be expected to be viewed by others.

But that is boring and difficult to understand so I came up with four more things CT residents should know if they love to be naked.
