Walter began his illustrious 48-year career with the West Haven Police Department, working as a supernumerary patrolman in 1968. A year later, he became a full-time patrolman. He was promoted to detective in 1972, then to patrol sergeant in 1979 and detective sergeant in 1986, a position he held until his retirement in 2016.
