Police sources are confirming that Hartford Police Officer Kevin Brodie was arrested shortly before midnight last night for an assault he allegedly committed while he was on duty. The assault apparently occurred at a Hartford School during the day shift while Brodie was working in the patrol division.

The Hartford Police Department spokesperson Nancy Mulroy said that an official statement will be released later today.

Sources have also told me that Brodie has been a police officer less than a year and graduated from the HPD academy on July 2, 2010 and is still on his probation period. From what the police sources told me, the assault by Brodie was revealed when the victim sought out treatment for his injuries and apparently the assault was also witnessed by school staff members.

No report of the beating or any case report was made by Brodie after the incident. Although Brodie has already been arrested for the assault charge, HPD Internal Affairs is continuing their investigation.

Chief Roberts was unavailable for comment at this time.More on this as I get it.



For Immediate Release: Wednesday, March 16, 2011


(Hartford) - Hartford Police Chief Daryl K. Roberts has suspended without pay Probationary Officer Kevin T. Brodie. The suspension was precipitated by his arrest following an incident that occurred at a Hartford alternative education school at 245 Locust Street, Hartford, on March 15, 2011, that involved a 17 year old student.

As a result of that incident, Brodie was charged with strangulation in the second degree, second degree unlawful restraint and assault in the third degree. He was released on a written promise to appear with a court date of March 24, 2011.

Brodie, who joined the department on December 14, 2009, and graduated from the Police Academy on July 2nd, 2010, has been a probationary employee since graduation seven and one half months ago.

The Hartford Police Department's Internal Affairs Division has begun an investigation.

How did this dope get on the job with his arrest record in hartford and him being fired from a corrections job in new Jersey? Where was the back ground on him? Perhaps the commander in charge of IAD and Backgrounds needs to answer some questions, or is he to busy working private jobs and double billing the citizens for time worked like other cops in that department. Perhaps the commander is just not showing up to work and saying he is like he did when he was in charge of the courts and detention.

I say it's embarrassing even for the city. It seems as though they just let any "Joe Shmoe" to take on role of police officer of the community. One news report mentioned the officer was a husband and father. But little do they know that he was married to two women for a time before finally getting a divorce and he has numerous children in several states with several different women. It is no wonder And this is a pillar of the community? It's a joke. And no it is not fair!!! Shouldn't morals play in the hiring of people in these type of positions?

WOW!!! This clearly proves that HPD has no morals. How did this creep get a job there? With all the child support orders, baby mothers that he does not take care of and yes the bigamist activities you would think that he would have been in jail before now!!!
