Chief Michael Lombardo of the joins the board of the Human Services Council.
Chief Lombardo and his team are instrumental in working very closely with one of HSC’s programs -- Children’s Connection. Children’s Connection is a nationally accredited Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) and coordinates the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) of Greater Norwalk which responds to allegations of child abuse. This team brings together Police Departments from Wilton, Westport, Weston, Norwalk and New Canaan, Norwalk Hospital Dept. of Pediatrics, DCF, the State’s Attorney’s Office along with many other organizations. They all come together to collaborate on investigating, substantiating and treating cases of child abuse.
Chief Lombardo has always been a strong advocate in programs protecting children. He was instrumental in helping pass an underage drinking ordinance in Wilton as the co-founder of the Wilton Task Force to Reduce Underage Drinking. Chief Lombardo is committed and dedicated to the people he serves. He began his career as a patrolman with the Wilton Police Dept. in 1981, during this time he was assigned to many specialized tasks as Field Training Officer and a member of the SCUBA Dive team. In 1993, he was promoted to Detective and then quickly moved to the position of Lieutenant. In 2005, he became Captain and was chosen as the Executive Officer of the Department. Four years later, he was sworn in as the Chief of Police by the Wilton Police Commission and has served in this position
for three years now.
His appointment to the board and over 30 years of
exceptional accomplishments are a tremendous asset to the Human Services Council. Chief Lombardo says, “it’s important for me to become more involved in the needs of the community and to contribute to this wonderful organization.” HSC is certainly thrilled to have him. His
dedication and commitment to bringing HSC to the next level in providing valuable community services is a key asset. Chief Lombardo has joined at a great time and
has been a huge help in coordinating the 4th Annual SoNo Stroll which is slated for Wednesday, June 13, in historic downtown South Norwalk.

area. These programs continue to make a huge impact in people’s lives and I am happy to be a part of it.”
