Chief Dean Esserman receives Manware Award form Family Centered Services of CT

Family Centered Service of CT is pleased to announce that Dean M. Esserman, Chief of the New Haven Department of Police Service, will be the recipient of the Richard Manware Award at its annual Spring Cocktail Party and Auction on May 7, 2015.   

 “The theme of this year’s Spring Cocktail Party and Auction is Opening Doors.  So much of what happens to victims of child abuse and domestic violence happens behind closed doors,” stated Cheryl Burack, Executive Director of Family Centered Services of CT.  “This event allows us to raise awareness about the challenges that children and families in our community face on a daily basis, and the services that are available to help them”. The Board of Directors of Family CT selected Chief Esserman because of his advocacy on behalf of victims of domestic violence and his community collaborations. “As Chief he has opened the doors of the police station to Family Centered Services, allowing us to have a Victim Advocate at the station two days a week.”

 Esserman is one of the country’s leading advocates for a community development approach to crime. Esserman is a member of the New York and Massachusetts Bar and has served as a distinguished professor at Roger Williams University School of Law and School of Justice Studies and currently holds a lecturer’s appointment at the Yale University Child Study Center and Yale Law School.  He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the New York University School of Law.
