“Recruiting the next generation of Hartford police officers is one of our top priorities, and I encourage anyone interested in being part of a community-oriented police department to apply,” said Mayor Bronin.  “Since taking office, we’ve recruited more than sixty police officers, and our classes have been some of the most diverse in Hartford’s history.  We’re going to continue to recruit officers as we try to make sure our department has the team it needs to serve our residents.”

The class from this upcoming application window will be the fifth since Mayor Bronin took office in January 2016.  Together, the first four classes have included 66 recruits, approximately half of whom are minorities.
