On October 12, 2022, the Bristol Community was shaken when three officers were ambushed, and Lieutenant Dustin DeMonte and Sergeant Alex Hamzy, unfortunately, lost their lives. In Milford, we know firsthand how a tragedy like this can affect the whole community. Let’s do our part, Milford and show Bristol our support!
