The Bethel Police Department has named their 2020 Officer of the Year. Officer Gregory Ammon transferred to Bethel in 2018 from the New Haven Police Department. He is one of Bethel's Field Training Officers. Department officials say he has spent most of his career on the midnight shift, historically looked at as uneventful, but not for Ammon. He has been actively patrolling Bethel and made numerous arrests while suspects are actively burglarizing motor vehicles, a crime Bethel officials say could easily go unsolved. Ammon’s proactive patrol tactics has led to information that has solved crime sprees that span all of Fairfield County and, oftentimes, other areas of Connecticut. His attention to detail and investigative strengths were touted by the Department in the Officer of the Year announcement.
