Hamden Accepts Generous $80k Donation to Police and Fire Departments

Mayor Curt Balzano Leng is very pleased to announce that the Hamden Legislative Council recently voted to accept two private donations, each in the amount of $40,000, by Hamden resident Ms. Anna Mulvey. Ms. Mulvey has generously donated these funds for use by the Hamden Police and Fire Departments, respectively. Previously, in 2018, Ms. Mulvey offered another donation to the Town – in the amount of $30,000 – to support Elderly Services programming and events in Hamden.

The $80k donation will be split evenly between the Police and Fire Departments. The Police Department will utilize the funding for the purchase of a FARO Focus 3D Laser Scanner, which will be used in the analysis of complex objects, crime scenes, accident reconstruction and other related situations. The Fire Department will utilize the funding for the purchase of extrication equipment designed to extricate trapped victims in motor vehicle collisions.

Commenting, Mayor Curt Leng said, “On behalf of the Hamden Police and Fire Departments, and all residents of Hamden, I extend my most sincere thanks for this extremely generous donation from Ms. Mulvey. Hamden’s ability to provide services our residents depend on is strengthened by this generous contribution, and our town as a whole is very grateful. I look forward to presenting Ms. Mulvey, in the next few weeks, with a special token of gratitude in honor of her generosity and dedication to Hamden.”
