NL's 5TH DETECTIVE
A ten year veteran of New London's police force will now be it's fifth detective. Joshua Bergeson, a marine who served in Iraq in 2003, will be promoted to detective this afternoon at City Hall. New London City Council approved funding for the position due to an increased workload on New London detectives. The number of drug overdoses and overdose deaths in the city increased the need. Bergeson is a Groton native who was hired by the police force in 2007.
