This is also the date, that I was informed by the Captain of the Cromwell Police Department that they had completed their investigation as well. However, we are not in a position to provide any further information until the Department of Children and Families, have concluded their findings. They tell us it could be any time from now, up until 45 days from the time in which they were contacted. The DCF findings will dictate what further steps and or disciplinary actions will be taken."
