3 new state environmental police to be sworn in

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Three new environmental conservation police officers are being added to the ranks of Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection police force.

A swearing-in ceremony for the three officers was scheduled for Tuesday morning at the department’s headquarters in Hartford. The three officers will fill vacancies on the EnCon police force, which is the oldest force in the state. It dates back to 1895.

The officers are fully certified and will enforce the laws on state-owned lands. They will also be charged with enforcing the state’s fish and game laws.

The three new officers are residents of Hamden, Southington and Plymouth.
