The Officer Brian A. Aselton Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc. was established in Brian's name by his family shortly after his death to memorialize Brian in an honorable and befitting manner. We want to ensure Brian's name lives on and everyone remembers the supreme sacrifice he made. Everyday police officers go to work knowing they may have to make the ultimate sacrifice for their communities.

Officer Brian A. Aselton Memorial Highway

On September 30, 1999, I-84 in East Hartford from the CT River to the interesection of Route 15 was named the Officer Brian A. Aselton Memorial Highway.  Pictured are State Sen. Billy Ciotto, Peter Aselton, State Sen. Gary LeBeau, Mayor Tim Larson, Carolyn Aselton, and John Aselton at the dedication.

Brian believed in education and was a Manchester Community College criminal justice student prior to being hired by the East Hartford Police Department. We believe, as Brian believed, that young people further themselves and society through education.
