A message from the Office of the Chief of Police 06/22/2021

     Please watch the new Public Service Announcement produced in joint cooperation between the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association and the State DOT. It features three School Resource Officers in Connecticut, including our own Corporal Jeff Desena. A lot of the footage was shot right here in Watertown at Polk School. We are looking forward to a safe upcoming new school year!
