Norwalk Police Department
Dave Light will be tough to replace
Jan 4, 2018 at 1:00 PM
It was a sad day to learn that Norwalk Police Chief Dave Light would soon be retiring. In my opinion, Dave was an outstanding law-enforcement officer, always trying to improve the enforcement of law and the protection of our citizens.
I followed Dave’s career and found him to be very professional. Having been a law-enforcement officer more than 30 years has given me a lot of insight into what makes a successful leader in our field. Dave Light is a successful law-enforcement leader. I recall before Chief Light entered the law-enforcement field when he operated a health club. Many of my deputies took advantage of his instruction and willingness to give free help to men and women in the law-enforcement field.
And last, but not least, thanks for all the help he received from his wife, Kim, who is an outstanding Norwalk Municipal Court administrator. I know this as I worked with her for over four years as a deputy bailiff.
Kim also is retiring.
Good luck, Dave. I predict we will hear more good things from Chief Light in the future.
