“I am very pleased to have the chance to put such a strong team together with Chief Cappiello and Deputy Chief Sullivan. Lt. Sullivan has proven himself an outstanding member of the Hamden Police Department,” said Leng. “I could not think of a better team to ensure the successful management and operation of our Hamden Police Department.”
