Meet Greg Staples

Greg Staples

Title: Chief of Police for the City of Norwalk

What’s your position on the Council?

I serve as the president of the Council and represent law enforcement as a member of the board.

How long have you been on the Council? 

I have served on the Council since April 2016.

Why are you part of the Council? 

In 2010 I was part of an investigation into the disappearance of a 3-year-old child. The investigation revealed that the child was neglected to death by his parents who then threw his body into the trash. I lead a team of police officers who searched the local landfill looking for the child and ultimately found his body. I serve on the Council in the hope that I can do something to prevent this type of tragedy from happening again.
