A Danbury Police Officer who has been on paid administrative leave for more than two years is set to return to work.  The Newstimes reports that Alexander Relyea is expected to be back on the job next month.  The officer was cleared in two shootings.  He wounded a Bristol man in July 2019 who refused commands to drop the knives as he approached officers pursuing him after he fled the scene of an altercation at MCCA.   Relyea was also exonerated for the fatal shooting of Paul Arbitelle during a confrontation at the Glen Apartments in December 2018.  Arbietlle was also armed with a knife.  According to the published report, Relyea wouldn’t immediately return to active patrol duty.  He would be briefed on the department’s new policies, procedures and training.  The 35 year old joined the Danbury Police Department in 2014.
