Duff Appoints Norwalk Police Lieutenant to Task Force to Study Compliance with Motor Vehicle Registration Laws

HARTFORD, CT (December 5, 2019) – Today, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) announced that he has appointed Thomas Roncinske to the Task Force to Study Compliance with Motor Vehicle Registration Laws. Mr. Roncinske is a Lieutenant with the Norwalk Police Department.

“Registering motor vehicles out-of-state continues to be a problem,” said Senator Bob Duff. “Tom’s expertise and 30 years of service with the Norwalk Police Department will allow him to contribute greatly to this task force and work toward finding solutions to this issue.”

Mr. Roncinske has been with the Norwalk Police Department since 1989. He was a police officer from 1989 until 2000 when he became a police detective working in the Cold Case Homicide Unit. In 2006, he became a police sergeant and in 2015 became a lieutenant, where he currently is the Special Victims Unit Commander.

“I look forward to collaborating with the task force to find solid solutions to this ongoing problem,” said Lt. Roncinske.

The Task Force to Study Police Transparency and Accountability was established in 2019 by Public Act 19-119. The task force consists of 12 members who seek to study compliance with motor vehicle registration laws and make recommendations to prevent Connecticut residents from registering motor vehicles in another state while residing in Connecticut.

The task force needs to submit a report on its findings and recommendations by no later than January 1, 2020. The task force will terminate on the date it submits its final report or by January 1, 2020, whichever is later.

Mr. Roncinske received an Associate’s degree from Monroe Community College, a B.S. from Nazareth College, and a Master of Science in Justice & Law Administration from Western Connecticut State University.
