When former First Selectman Ray Baldwin was sworn in to the Police Commission Tuesday, it marked the first time in more than 30 years that he had an official law enforcement role in town. But as his wife, Mary Ann, said, he had really never stopped being a cop.
“It’s kind of like serving in the Marine Corps — even when you leave, you never stop being a marine,” Baldwin said. “Serving on the police department was a great experience. A lot of the guys I served with, we’re friends to this day.”
