Anthony Dawson appointed to board of Board of Police Commissioners

NEW HAVEN — Former alderman and mayoral candidate Anthony Dawson has been appointed by the mayor to serve on the Board of Police Commissioners replacing Bishop Theodore Brooks, whose term expired on Feb. 1.
“As a long time member of the Board of Aldermen, a member of Yale-New Haven Hospital’s protective services team, and a tireless advocate for New Haven residents, Tony will be a great addition to the Board of Police Commissioners and support to Chief (Dean) Esserman,” Mayor John DeStefano Jr. said in a statement.
Dawson served 16 years as an alderman representing the Hill neighborhood. He lost in a Democratic primary in 2002. He also challenged DeStefano in the last mayoral election but dropped out before the primary.
Dawson has been a member of the Yale-New Haven Hospital security department for nearly three decades.
In a statement, Dawson said he was “honored” by the appointment and said he has been a “supporter of the New Haven Police Department since I worked in the department’s summer youth program when I was 16.”
