Video Surveillance Systems in Connecticut

Connecticut is a state in the New England region of the United States. The current estimated population is 3,596,677 making it one of the most densely populated states in the country. Dutch explorers were the first Europeans in Connecticut. Dutch fur traders established a fort in the area of present day Hartford in 1614. In 1635 the British commissioned John Winthrop to establish a colony at Old Saybrook. Several other colonies sprung up in surrounding areas and they were combined into the Connecticut Colony in 1644. The largest group of settlers arrived in the region in 1636. They were Puritans from Massachusetts, led by Thomas Hooker. In 1701 Yale College was established and dominated the colonies intellectual life. Four delegates from Connecticut signed the Declaration of Independence, entering the colony into the American Revolution. In 1788, Connecticut ratified the US Constitution and became the fifth state. The new state’s seaports and textile mills helped it to flourish. During the Industrial Revolution, Connecticut became a center for manufacturing.
