Keys To The Cops

Losing your car keys is a hassle.

But back in the day, a replacement cost only a dollar or two.

Today, a new “fob” can run a couple hundred bucks.

Back in the day, when you lost your car keys you’d post signs in your neighborhood.

Now, you can post an item on “06880+.”

But there’s an even better alternative.

In the lobby of Westport Police headquarters sits a plastic container filled with 2 or 3 dozen lost keys.

Lost keys

Many Westporters don’t know about this low-key but effective public service.

So the next time you lose your keys, don’t call the cops.

Go to Jesup Road headquarters yourself. Of course, you’ll have to call someone for a ride…

    The key container has been there for at least 20 years, What surprises me is that some key sets have a tag reading, “If found, drop in any mailbox. Postage guaranteed” Why isn’t that done?
