Zack attended the CT Police Officer Standards and Training Academy in Meriden, CT for 6 months. He completed a rigorous 12 week field training program (FTO) earlier this month. We would like to congratulate Officer Zachary O’Bright for his accomplishments. His dedication and hard work have gotten him to this point and will continue to allow him to advance his career.

Here’s some insight into what it’s like when officers respond to a scene. This is Officer Hood’s body camera from the 7-31-18 fire at 378 Cottage Grove Rd, Bloomfield. He was just across the street in the parking lot of COPACO when he was dispatched. You will see from the video that Officer Turcotte responded from closer a closer location, as he was already on scene when Officer Hood arrived.

The Bloomfield, CT Police Department would like to thank everyone for their support yesterday during the fire at 378 Cottage Grove Road, Bloomfield CT. Thanks to the on and off duty police officers, firefighters, and members of our community, all 4 residents and their dog were able to make it out of their home. With the support of these heroes, 2 of these people were rescued from the second story of the home. We would also like to express our gratitude to the supporting agencies and individuals who helped extinguish the fire and provide assistance to the family. This includes responding firefighters, medical personnel, civilians, and the American Red Cross. Wishing the family affected by the fire the best.

Featured Employee: Nicholas Hood has been a certified EMT in Connecticut for 6 years. He worked as an EMT in a number of towns and cities in CT. As much as he loved working in emergency medical services, he always dreamed of being a police officer. The Bloomfield Police Department was fortunate enough to hire Nick as a police officer in October 2017. He attended a residential police academy in Meriden, CT for 6 months. After graduation, Nick began Bloomfield’s 12 week field training officer (FTO) program. We would like to congratulate Officer Nicholas Hood for successfully completing the FTO program. While his education will be ongoing, as of last week he has the freedom to work independently. Although he has dedicated a lot of this past year to work, Nick still finds free time to play video games and enjoys socializing with his friends.
