For the past four years CPFU has been organizing this wonderful event as a token of appreciation to its members for their selfless service protecting and serving the citizens of Connecticut.
This year, Department of Motor Vehicle Inspector and Union Steward Terrijean Erasmus was honored as a “Hero Among Us” by the Connecticut Yard Goats Association.
Terrijean began her public safety career in 1982 as a dispatcher for the Farmington Police Department. Within two years at Farmington PD she became a police officer, and later worked her way up to the rank of sergeant. She would go on to serve a total of 38 years in Farmington.
She then came to work for the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles where she is currently employed as an inspector for Commercial vehicle Safety Division as a police officer. She is assigned to the Student Transportation Unit where she conducts safety compliance inspections on school buses and driver qualifications. She is also a field training officer.
Terrijean is also an active and devoted Union steward.
In July 2022 Terrijean will have given more than 40 years of dedicated service to the State of Connecticut. Please join us in recognizing Terrijean!
