Officer Francis Perrone died Sunday of what the department says were natural causes. He was an 8-year veteran of the force and served 22 years with Hartford police before that.

“Cop’s cop. Just a great guy, very into making sure younger guys, younger officers were in tune. Bestowed a lot of experience on to our younger people here,” said Captain Mark Catania, Glastonbury Police Department. “Younger people were actually gravitating toward him. He was mentoring a lot of people.”
