NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The New Canaan Police Department is looking to add two officers, according to a report from NCAdvertiser.com.
The addition of new officers could potentially reduce overtime pay, according to the report. The town’s Board of Finance restored a second officer position in March after it had been cut, returning to a proposed total of 47 police officers, according to the report.
