Police Chief Robert Crosby

Chief Robert Crosby of the Wilton Police Department will speak at the Kiwanis Club of Wilton’s luncheon meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 7.

A 33-year member of the department, Crosby started in 1983 as a patrol officer, and has held virtually every position in the department prior to being named Chief by the Police Commission in 2015. He was appointed as acting Chief on Jan. 7, 2015, filling in for Chief Michael Lombardo, who left to head up the Trumbull CT department; Crosby was sworn in as full-time Chief on Sept. 22, 2015. He served seven years as Wilton’s Youth Officer and was also a patrol officer, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, captain and deputy chief.

He currently is in command of 44 sworn officers and four civilian employees whose mission in part is to serve and protect all citizens, and to maintain peace and preserve the quality of life in Wilton.

Chief Crosby is a graduate of Western Connecticut State University and the FBI National Academy. He will explain to the assembled Kiwanians what drives the department in Wilton.

Non members are welcome to join the Kiwanis Club for lunch and the presentation, but reservations are required and can be made by calling Bud Taylor at 203.354.0208.
