Forgery charges to be dropped against former West Haven police sergeant after meeting requirements


Charges will be dropped against the former public information officer for the West Haven Police Department if he meets certain requirements.

The attorney for former Sergeant David Tammaro said the charges would be dropped if the former officer does 100 hours of community service and writes letters of apology to the city and to the police department.

Tammaro had been charged by Connecticut State Police with 87 counts of forgery for allegedly falsifying hours on overtime slips.

“I’m in favor of a second chance for Mr. Tammaro as long as he complies with what was ordered by the court. The city has asked for a formal letter of apology, and the city does not oppose the granting of accelerated rehabilitation in this matter. I am in agreement with that position,” Mayor Nancy Rossi said.
