THE HADDAM RESIDENT STATE TROOPERS' OFFICE IS NOT STAFFED 24 HOURS A DAY. IF YOU NEED IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE OR NEED TO REPORT A CRIME, PLEASE CONTACT THE WESTBROOK BARRACKS AT THE FOLLOWING TELEPHONE NUMBERS: 860-345-2769 (or) 1-800-256-5761.
The Haddam Resident State Troopers office is currently staffed by two State Troopers from Troop "F", Westbrook barracks. The Resident State Troopers were assigned by the Westbrook barracks commander to the Resident State Trooper position after the Troopers went through a competitive selection process which includes an oral interview and prior evaluations.
The Resident State Troopers have the responsibility of handling every police related function in the Town of Haddam which include investigating crimes, investigating car collisions, teaching D.A.R.E., participating in community policing activities, applying for federal grants, patrolling the town, enforcing motor vehicle laws, making arrests and giving public presentations on a wide array of public safety issues, just to name a few.
The Connecticut State Police, Resident State Trooper program began in 1947 and has become one of the most effective programs in law enforcement for smaller, community policing. Several other State Police departments around the country have used the Connecticut State Police, Resident State Trooper program as a model for designing their own programs.
The program is cost effective for towns in which the individual town has highly trained, professional State Troopers assigned strictly to the town. The Resident State Troopers are employed by the State Police and the town enters into a contract with the State Police Department for the services of the State Troopers.
The Resident State Troopers assigned to the town of Haddam are currently
Trooper Enrico Milardo and Trooper Joseph Deangelo

He has a Bachelors degree in Marketing/Communications and is currently working on his MBA in Management. He will be working primarily Evening Shift (3pm-11pm).
Troopers Milardo and Deangelo are able to get to know town citizens on a more personal level as they are in town every regular shift that they work and they have an office at the former Haddam-Killingworth Middle School, 95 Little City Road, Higganum, with a mail address of 30 Field Park Drive, Haddam, CT 06438.
