After proudly and faithfully serving the Norwalk Police Department for 25 years, Officer John Haggerty retired from a successful career on July 4, 2022.
On January 9, 1997, Officer John Haggerty became a sworn member of the Norwalk Police Department. He served in the Patrol Division, Traffic Unit, and Training Division. Officer Haggerty was selected for recognition at the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) awards. John was recognized during his career with Officer of the Month on several occasions, a Life Saving Award and Officer of the Year in 2003 for his efforts to save the life of a young infant who stopped breathing.
He received numerous letters from the citizens of Norwalk and outside agencies for his professionalism and dedication during his career. Prior to working for the Norwalk Department of Police Service, Officer Haggerty served in the United States Marine Corps, CT Army Reserve and the National Guard.
We are very sad to see John leave but we are very grateful for his loyal service which helped to make our department and the City of Norwalk a better place for us all. Please join me in wishing him the best in his retirement.
