He was shot in the line of duty and became permanently disabled.  Now his family feels as though they’ve been forgotten. It’s time for that to change. 

 

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Debbie Roselle and I am married to Officer Phil Roselle, a dedicated Norwalk Police officer who dedicated over 30 years of public service to our community.

On September 5, 2017, Phil was accidentally shot by his sergeant during an on-duty firearms training. Ever since this preventable incident occurred, Phil’s physical & mental health has been on a steady decline. Several independent doctors have concluded that because of this shooting incident, Phil has permanent damage to his dominant arm/hand and that his diabetes has been severely impacted due to the bullet still lodged in his rib cage. This is causing his kidneys to fail, creating the need for a kidney transplant.  The combination of these injuries has resulted in Phil being unable to return to work and perform the duties required of a police officer.
