REDDING, CONN. -- Redding Police Chief Douglas Fuchs said his department will no longer release identities of those accused of domestic violence in an effort to guarantee confidentiality of victims, according to The Redding Pilot.

Fuchs said the change is meant to reflect changes in state law to assure confidentiality to victims.
