On September 17, 2021, Officer Joshua Castellano was involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision where he succumbed to his injuries. Josh was a tremendous officer who proudly served the New Haven Police Department since 2014. During his short but impactful career, Josh was part of the Westville and Hill Districts, as well as part of the Narcotics Enforcement Unit and his latest role in the Shooting Task Force.
Besides being an incredible officer, Josh was an even better son, who leaves behind his wonderful mother, Denise, as well as countless friends. No one who came across him in their lifetime ever forgot him. He was loyal, compassionate, reliable and approached every aspect of his life with passion and excitement. Josh made every person love him without even trying, and so many people will miss him dearly.
We are praying for Josh’s family and friends during this time. Rest easy brother, we will take it from here.
