Town of Windsor Police Officer Chris Darcy was named the Windsor Optimist Club Officer of the Year on May 11.
The Officer of the Year Award recognizes officers for their job performance and attitude over the last year.
Darcy joined the Windsor Police Department in February 2015. In his two years with the department, he has taken on difficult and complex cases and assisted with officer recruitment. Darcy was recently selected as the department’s first school resource officer, and will transition into his new role with the start of the 2017-18 school year.
“Chris is a very respected and dedicated officer, both within the department and in the community,” said Chief of Police Richard Klimek. “Compassion for others is a strong suit for Chris. He is a positive professional that serves the Windsor community with pride and strives to make a difference in the lives of those around him every day.”
The Windsor Optimist Club is the local chapter of Optimist International, a worldwide organization dedicated to serving and benefiting youth, as well as fostering respect for law enforcement personnel.
