Nancy Ugrinaj, owner of Fuzari's Pizzeria, at 226 Mill St., agreed a substation would bring peace of mind to the community, which police said is vulnerable to crime due to its border with Port Chester and its proximity to New York City and Interstate 95.

According to a preliminary FBI report, the city of Stamford has endured a 32% rise in violent crimes for the first half of 2008 in comparison to the first half of 2007.This data comes despite a nationwide statistical drop in violent crimes.
