Another appointment to the Danbury Police Department has been confirmed by the City Council, but the Department is looking to add more members to the force. During it's last meeting, members confirmed Thomas Pace to the position of Certified Officer. He's been working as an officer with the New York City Police Department for the past 5 years and previously worked for the U.S. Postal Service. Mayor Dean Esposito says he brings a broad range of valuable skills and experience to the Danbury Police Department. The application deadline for Entry Level Officers has been extended to October 23rd. Applicants will need a valid CHIP card at time of application and a passing score on the Connecticut Police Chiefs Association examination. Disabled and non-disabled veterans who are eligible for additional credits may have 10 or 5 points respectively added to their earned scores if successful in the examination process. Danbury does not require that Police Officer applicants be a resident of the City, but residents will have 3 points added to their earned scores if successful in the examination process.
