Bridgeport—There are several different networks right now eyeing a reality show pilot that showcases a group of police officers in Bridgeport.
During their day jobs, they walk the beat.
In fact, if there's something strange in this neighborhood, chances are-- Bridgeport police officer Jim Myers knows about it.
"I don't find investigating crime and investigating the paranormal being that different," Jim Myers said.
Myers has been on the police force for 12 years and he's led the 826 paranormal police force-- for about a year a half.
They are police officers who use their experience and their training to try and explain, the ... unexplainable.
"In both, you're looking at the scientific method. Identifying a problem, collecting data-- coming up with a hypothesis then a possible resolution," Myers said.
The group caught the attention of a New York producer-- who tagged along on an investigation, and shot a pilot for what they hope will become a reality show.
Rob Moccio has known Jim since the two were on the football team together in high school.
He's joined forces with the new force-- and also spends a lot time hunting down ghosts.
"Instead of saying, this is paranormal or this is haunted, we try to debunk it. And 85% of the time, we do! If we can't debunk it, we really might have something there." Moccio said.
That's the group consensus about the old Poli Palace.
It used to be a grand destination-- The Savoy hotel. It was attached to two theatres: the Poli palace and the Majestic theatre.
now it's falling down-- and doesn't get too many visitors... in this world, anyway.
"It's the most odd thing in the world to experience something you can't fight off-- you can't see," Myers said.
There are a lot of theories: some say this was built on an old Indian burial ground.
Others say it was a hot spot for gangsters like Butch Schultz.
But the second floor is really strange-- and no one has been able to explain to the group why there are so many references to kids.
There is a sick kids room-- and there are painted hand print all over the walls.
In that room, the group says they were rolling on an audio tape when they recorded what they call: EVF or eletrical voice phenomenon.
On the tape they play-- an officer asks if anyone wanted to say hello-- and right then, some say you hear a little girl's voice saying, "hello!"
No one can say for sure if it was a little girl's voice...
Skeptics say it sounds a lot like a door creaking.
Stories like that are the reason they'll keep investigating-- They hope to keep the case... from going cold.
