The New Canaan Police Department has hired a 33-year-old Bridgeport police officer to join the department. The hiring of Clinton R. Jarvis brings the department's ranks to 46 officers, one short of the full complement. He was to be sworn in Wednesday at the Lapham Community Center at Waveny Park.

Jarvis, who lives in Bridgeport, has been an officer there since October 2011. He graduated from Bullard Havens Technical School and continued his education by attending Southern Connecticut State University and Housatonic Community College, where he has been studying criminal science and sociology.

Jarvis will need to complete a four-week field training program before being allowed to patrol on his own.
