Award Ceremony

sergeant hamilton receiving award

The NH State Police Troop F is proud to recognize one of its own. On April 11, 2017, Sergeant Nathan B. Hamilton of the New Hampshire State Police-Troop F, was recognized at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, (DHMC) surrounded by his family and peers where he was awarded the First Annual Sergeant Robert E. Bruno Award of Investigative Excellence. This award is given in recognition of those who have achieved the highest standards of excellence as embodied in the work ethos established by Sergeant Bruno in the investigation of crimes against children and families, facilitated by the office of the Grafton County Attorney. Sergeant Robert E. Bruno served 28 years with the New Hampshire State Police, retiring as a Detective Sergeant assigned to Troop F in Twin Mountain, NH where he was a very successful investigator, working several high profile cases during his tenure retiring in 2007. Sadly, Sergeant Bruno passed on July 23, 2016 after a short battle with cancer. The award was presented at the Shield Our Children from Harm conference at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, (DHMC). This was particularly appropriate because Sergeant Bruno was recognized as an early supporter of the Grafton and Sullivan County's Child Advocacy Center at DHMC. Child Advocacy Centers are child-friendly places where trained forensic interviewers talk to suspected victims of child abuse. As DHMC's website explains "It's a place where Child Protective Services social workers, police investigators, mental health professionals, victim advocates, prosecutors, and medical providers plan and coordinate services and interventions for children where there are concerns for abuse. It is a place where young victims of sexual abuse can talk about their abuse without further traumatization by the system." Present for the presentation of the award, was Sergeant Bruno's wife Jeanne, his daughter Katie and son Michael, (pictured.)

Sergeant Hamilton began his career in 2002 with the New Hampshire State Police assigned to the Troop F Barracks where he served western Grafton County honing his superior investigative skills. As a result, he was assigned to Troop F Detectives where he assisted in the investigation of numerous crimes against person and crimes against property. He also served as an investigator with the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit within the Investigative Services Bureau until he was promoted to Patrol Sergeant and once again joined the ranks back at Troop F in June, 2015 where he once again serves the citizens of Grafton and Coos County.
