There's a new Danbury Police officer on the force. The City Council earlier this month confirmed the appointment of Frederick Bauer to the position. Bauer has an Associate's degree in general studies from Naugatuck Valley Community College. His recommendation letter said that Bauer has a long standing and successful work history as a sales representative. He is currently attending the Bridgeport Police Academy.
A Danbury Firefighter was also promoted to Fire Lieutenant. Nicholas Velotti began his career with the Danbury Fire Department in 2007. He has a Bachelor of Science degree from Sacred Heart University and an Associate of Science degree in Fire Technology from Naugatuck Valley Community College. Velotti holds certifications as a Fire Service Instructor, Core Rescue, Hazmat and Tanker Endorsement.
Mayor Mark Boughton says he saw Velotti twice during the promotion process, and learned that he is a dedicated firefighter who wants to enhance the department.
