The Town of Greenwich is proud to be celebrating the 125
th Anniversary of the Greenwich Police Department in 2021. Chief James Heavey and the Department are marking this milestone by welcoming the community and longtime partners, including local businesses, to partake in several events throughout 2021. The theme of the year will be “Honoring Our Past and Embracing Our Future,” with the funds raised to support the Greenwich Police Department’s Scholarship Fund, a non-profit 501 (c) (3), which grants financial assistance to the children of active Greenwich Police Officers, who qualify by ability and character, for undergraduate studies.
“We are proud that the Town of Greenwich Police Department has earned the reputation of being a well-trained and responsive professional organization over the past 125 years,” said Chief of Police James Heavey. “We strive for excellence and have demonstrated a sustained commitment of service to the public. I am very appreciative to be a member of this family – past and present – and I am equally pleased that we can celebrate this milestone together. We look forward to the history we will write together in the years ahead.”
“As a police department, it’s important for us to celebrate, especially now. It’s been a different year due to COVID-19 and the many other stressors police officers are dealing with every day,” Heavey said. “We want the residents of Greenwich to join us in paying tribute and recognizing our Officers and staff who strive to keep Greenwich safe for everyone.”
