EASTON, Conn. As you drive around Easton have you ever wondered what those little white bumper stickers with EP T written on them were? It turns out they are part of a safety program used by the Easton Police Department since the 1980s.
The stickers tell police officers that the car is owned by an Easton resident. If police respond to a suspicious vehicle and see the sticker, its a good indicator right off the bat that it is someone from town, said Capt. James Candee.
Police ran out of stickers a few months back and are once again distributing them to residents. While the program is not mandatory, police urge all residents to obtain a free sticker at Police Headquarters. Residents need to bring I.D. and their vehicle registration.
