During the month of February, the Canton police department hired two new police officers, Mark Selander and Matthew Keepin.  Officer Selander served with the Hartford department for twenty years and retired as a Detective before joining the Canton police department.  Officer Selander has specialized training in Advanced Counterfeit Identification and Identity Theft Investigation.  Mark has an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice from Tunxis Community College, Farmington, CT and lives in Granby, Connecticut.  He is currently assigned to the patrol division and is working with the department’s field training officers.  Officer Matthew Keepin graduated from Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice.  Officer Keepin has prior work experience as a Youth Counselor while working at the Connecticut Junior Republic School in Litchfield, CT.  Matthew lives in Bristol, CT and entered the Connecticut Police Officers and Standards Training Academy in Meriden, CT on February 19, 2010.


Canton Chief of Police John Murphy is very pleased with the addition of two highly qualified officers which will address staffing vacancies within the department.  Officer Selander should complete his field training sometime in early Spring 2010 and begin patrol duties.  It is anticipated that Officer Keepin will begin patrol duties sometime in the early Fall 2010.
