Nicholas Falbo is to be sworn in Jan. 7 at Town Hall and will start recruit training later this week, according to a press release from Lt. Jason Ferraro, NCPD’s public information officer. 

A recent Trumbull High School graduate, Falbo earned an associates degree in criminal justice from Housatonic Community College and worked most recently as an asset prevention detective for Macy’s in Milford, the press release said.

He was one of more than 50 candidates who applied for an entry-level police officer position last fall and “successfully endured an intensive testing and selection process including a written examination, physical agility testing, interview panel, polygraph, psychological evaluation, background investigation, medical testing, and Police Commission interview,” Ferraro said.

Police said recently that the department has been down five officers. The Police Department was approved for approximately $6.6 million in operating expenses for fiscal year 2020, representing an approximately 1.9% increase from the prior year.

Falbo’s training at the Connecticut Police Academy will commence Jan. 10, with a tentative graduation date of June 29. After that, Falbo will undergo at least 400 hours of field training with NCPD before being certified as a probationary police officer.
