2 Hamden officers disciplined
HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) — Two Hamden, Connecticut, police officers have been disciplined for alleged wrongdoing after settlements were reached between the union and the police chief.
The New Haven Register obtained terms of the settlements through Freedom of Information requests.
Officer Michael Cirillo, charged with assaulting a man after leaving his post while on duty, was demoted from sergeant, had his name removed from the list of those eligible for promotion to lieutenant, and agreed to complete an anger management program.
Officer Timothy McKeon was suspended for 30 days after an internal investigation revealed he “made a minimum of five purchases of illegal steroids” between 2009 and 2017.
Cirillo said he understands the decision but disagreed with the demotion.
McKeon’s attorney says his client wants to move forward and close this chapter in his life.
