New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski To Retire at Month’s End

New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski is retiring from the department at the end of this month, officials say. A member of the New Canaan Police Department for more than 33 years, and chief since June 2013, Krolikowski has accepted a position as Darien’s first-ever director of school security, according to a press release issued by the Darien Public Schools. In the role, he will hire armed security and other staff to see all school safety issues there. Krolikowski said in a press release that he’s “thrilled” to take on the new position. “School safety and security must be a focused team effort that evolves, embraces best practices, and mitigates risk,” he said.
