From Charter Oak to Chief

Charter Oak Graduate Named Hartford, CT Police Chief

Like many Charter Oak graduates, Daryl Roberts is a testament to the power of hard work and dedication. Raised by a single mother in inner-city neighborhoods, Roberts worked his way up the ranks of the Hartford police force to be named Chief on July 12, 2006 . Chief Roberts joined the force as a patrol officer in 1982. Since then he has commanded numerous divisions, and earned multiple awards including Distinguished Service Medals, Exemplary Service Medals, a Merit Award, and the department's highest honor, the Chief's Medal of Valor. Along the way, Roberts assured his advancement potential by completing a Bachelor of Science degree with honors from Charter Oak State College. Consistent with many other Charter Oak grads, he balanced his education and career with family and community service. Married for over twenty years, he is the father of three daughters, and a Deacon at his church. In a message to the Hartford community Daryl stated, "I still believe that anything is possible when we support each other and expect great things." Charter Oak is proud to have supported Chief Roberts in his educational accomplishments, and we congratulate him on the many great things he has achieved!
