For retired Danbury deputy police chief, helping the city is ‘what makes you feel good about your job’

DANBURY — Just weeks away from retiring, Deputy Chief of Police Shaun McColgan said there were several cases during his 32-year career with the police department that stand out.

There has been a year-long investigation into a Danbury wrestling coach accused of having inappropriate relationships with students.

He was the lieutenant in charge of the shift when a man stole a car with two children inside, leading officers to chase him around town until he was captured and the children rescued, unscathed.

About 15 years ago, he caught the youths peddling fire hydrants across town and firing BB guns and slingshots at cars and buildings. He tracked them down after they shot his unmarked police car with a BB gun, he said.
