Maureen Platt, known for rolling out several key initiatives during her nine years as Waterbury state’s attorney, was reappointed to an eight-year term Monday. She was sworn in Tuesday and her first day on the job was Wednesday.

The 64-year-old West Haven native said she is perhaps most proud of her work with the office’s Early Screening Intervention docket. That program, which kicked off in Waterbury and Bridgeport in 2016, and which Platt says she pushed for, addresses low-level criminal activity in the communities of Middlebury, Naugatuck, Prospect, Southbury, Watertown, Wolcott and Waterbury.
