NORWICH – Sgt. Craig Berry reported for his final roll call at the Norwich City Police Department early this morning, the last in his 20 years of service.
Berry has served the community for the last two decades and today marks his last day on the job.
At age 25, Berry began his career in law enforcement and was hired by the Norwich Police in 1991. During his time at the city department, he also served as a part-time officer in the Sherburne Police Department from 1998 to 2004.
“It’s a huge loss to the department. Any member with 20 years of experience here takes so much knowledge with them when they leave, particularly Craig with his expertise in information technology and accident reconstruction,” said Police Chief Joseph Angelino.
Angelino said Berry was instrumental in “literally getting the department into the 21st century,” as the officer helped install a number of computer upgrades over the years.
“He supervised the entire computer network here. Eighteen work stations and two servers, in going, out going information and six laptops in patrol cars,” said Angelino.
