From the North Haven Police Department:
On March 8, 1943 the North Haven Police Department was established by an Act of the Connecticut State Legislature. At that time, Joseph Castiglioni was appointed the officer-in-charge and he eventually became the first Chief of Police.
The North Haven Police Department has come a long way since its inception and single-digit size department. Today we have 56 sworn officers, and are over 80 strong with dispatchers and support personnel.
The police department also oversees the School Resource Officer program, School Crossing Guards, and Animal Control.
We’ve regionalized with partners for SWAT and accident reconstruction, started a K-9 program, and have numerous officers that are certified by the Police Officer Standards and Training Council (POSTC) as instructors.
We also went through a significant and expansive remodel of department headquarters back in 2018 to meet our growing needs.
In these 80 years we have seen much change, and have many people to thank, both past and present, for where we are today.
Most importantly though, we thank the community and our stakeholders for their support, as well as the men and women of the department for their continued dedication to this agency.
