There have been requests from the public for the release of the Body Worn Camera of the officers involved in Mr. Cole’s arrest on December 29, 2022.  Pursuant to § 29-6d(g)(2)(B)(i) of the Connecticut General Statutes, public disclosure of the recordings from Body Worn Camera is not required in domestic violence incidents, if the scene of an incident involves a victim of domestic abuse, “if disclosure could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy in the case of such victim”.  As a result, the Shelton Police Department has been working with the Milford State’s Attorney’s Office on this issue.  Videos have been redacted in order to protect the privacy interests of victims of the incident.

On December 29, 2022 at approximately 9:15PM, The Shelton Police Department received a call from a person that requested to be anonymous. The caller stated that the victim is in a domestic situation and the victim sent a code through text message. The caller stated every time the cops go there the male makes the victim be quiet. The caller reiterated that their identity cannot be revealed because the male would come after their house and do anything to their family. The caller stated that the male constantly flips out, throws things, and hits the victim. The dispatcher asked the caller about any weapons and was told that the victim will hide knives if the male starts flipping out. The caller stated that the code that was sent by the victim means that the victim needs help.
