Police officer. He had been with the Berlin Police Department for only six months when he was struck and thrown 60 feet by a drunk driver while directing traffic at an automobile accident on Route 5. He died from his injuries later that night at Yale-New Haven Hospital. The suspect was sentenced to 16 months in jail but was killed in a motorcycle accident the weekend before he was to begin his sentence. Officer Casner's brother was also a Berlin police officer at the time and was on duty the night his brother was killed. Officer Casner was a supernumery officer from April 1982 until he was promoted in August 1984. A 1981 graduate of Berlin High School and a former Connecticut Department of Corrections officer, he also was an EMT with the Kensington Volunteer Fire Department Ambulance Division. In 2005, the segment of Route 71 from the Routes 71A and 71 intersection northerly to Main Street in Berlin was designated the "Officer Jeffrey G. Casner Memorial Highway".
