Today, September 7, the Newtown Police Department added Amanda Lopez to their roster of police officers.
Officer Lopez, accompanied by her family, was sworn in during a small ceremony at the department. Members of the police commission, fellow officers, and elected officials were there to welcome her to the organization. The Oxford native enjoys hiking with her dog and is looking forward to setting off on this new career path.
Officer Lopez earned a degree in Justice and Law Administration from Western Connecticut State University and has been interested in law enforcement since high school. When asked why she chose Newtown she said “it is such a beautiful town” and she is excited to begin her career here. We are lucky to have her as a member of the organization and look forward to her completing her training.
