Compliment an Officer

Commending or complimenting an officer for exceptional performance:

While our Officers do not seek nor expect credit or thanks for performing their duties; recognition of exceptional service by the public is always appreciated and helps our administration, supervision, and town government to identify and recognize those officers who are quietly and routinely making Bethel a better place to live and visit. Officer commendations may also be placed into their personnel files.

To recognize, commend, or compliment an officer, please call or write a brief letter or email about your interaction. Please include details such as a brief description of the event, the date, approximate time, and the location (this will help us to identify the employee in the event you do not know their name).

Commendations can be directed to Captain Burnes including by email at or phone at 203-744-7900 ext 102.
