This Month's Krier
Hail and Farewell!
Matt Ward
After more than a decade as Killingworth's Resident State Trooper, Matt Ward is moving on to a new assignment with Troop F. We are going to miss him! His calm presence supported our community in so many ways. A generation of schoolchildren learned from him that a police officer can be on your side. He was a vital part of our first response team, working closely with the KVFC and the Ambulance Association. He worked countless town events over the years, usually providing security and traffic control but sometimes as a panelist or presenter himself, sharing his knowledge and experience with the community. Residents knew they could trust him, and his awareness of the town and its people helped to keep our crime rate low and to solve the few crimes that did occur in his time here.

Matt promises that he won't be a stranger, and we look forward to seeing him around town – since he's already been to Disneyworld.

Our new resident state trooper is Scott Wisner, who comes highly recommended by the Town of Essex, where he held that position several years ago. Detective Wisner has had a distinguished career with the Connecticut State Police. In December 2013 the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund named him Officer of the Month, in recognition of his heroic actions in an April 2013 confrontation with two fleeing robbery suspects. You will meet him—on paper and in person—in the coming months.
