New Britain Police Chief To Run Boston Marathon


Officer Brett Morgan was released from an area Rehabilitation Hospital today. Officer Morgan has been hospitalized since January 19, 2014, after sustaining serious injuries while investigating a stolen car complaint.

Officer Morgan has undergone several surgical procedures and intensive rehabilitation therapy. Officer Morgan will continue his therapy and rehabilitation as an outpatient as he continues to heal and recover from his injuries.

All of us at the New Britain Police Department are so very pleased with Officer Morgan’s progress and the fact that he is able to sleep in his own home tonight.

The New Britain Police Department and New Britain Police Union has set up a fund to benefit Officer Morgan and his family to deal with expenses that have and will arise out of these criminal acts. The fund is the Brett Morgan Benefit Fund hosted at TD Bank. Any person, who wishes to donate to this fund, can go to any TD Bank branch and ask to make a contribution to the Brett Morgan Benefit Fund c/o Robert Martin New Britain Police Department. You can also donate by mailing checks to the New Britain Police Department, Brett Morgan Benefit Fund, 10 Chestnut Street, New Britain CT, 06051. Checks should be made payable to the “Brett Morgan Benefit Fund.”
