East Haven Police Adds More New Officers

The Board of Police Commissioners hires three new recruits — including the department's first Hispanic female officer — according to a New Haven Register report.

East Haven Police continues to add to its ranks, with the department hiring more officers during a special police commission meeting at its North High Street headquarters last week.

At that Sept. 20 meeting, the agenda is attached to this article, the town interviewed and hired three new recruits: Ryan Gorman, Michael Jobes and Franchesca Ojeda Crespo, according to a New Haven Register report.

The Register's Jennifer Swift reported that the three will officially join the department on Oct. 1. They are then scheduled to begin their police academy training a few days later on Oct. 5

According to East Haven Interim Police Chief Brent Larrabee, Crespo — who speaks Spanish — is the first Hispanic female to join the department. She had previously served as a sergeant in the U.S. Army

Larrabee added that he expects the town to hire two more officers in the near future. The department has been understaffed in the wake of the arrest of four East Haven Police officers, as well as some recent retirements earlier this year.

Swift's full report on the Register can be found here.

Congrats to the new hires. You picked a great, rewarding career. Absorb all you can and never stop learning your "trade'. But most of all remember one thing, you will not, nor are you expected to, change the world you live in. But you can make that one little circle you are in, a better place. Give society a break once in awhile, and you will enjoy the smile you get back in return.
