Retirement Announcement Lieutenant Daniel Allen

FEBRUARY 2, 2017: Chief of Police James Heavey today announced the retirement of Lieutenant Daniel Allen, after 43 years of service with the Greenwich Police Department (GPD).

A Greenwich native, Lieutenant Allen was sworn in as a Greenwich Police Officer on July 29, 1974, after graduating from the 110th Class of the Connecticut Municipal Police Basic Police Academy.   During his career, he held numerous positions in GPD, including Patrol Officer, Youth Officer, and Detective.   He also served as a Police Instructor and was a long-standing member of the Department’s Special Response Unit. During his tenure as a Youth Officer, Lieutenant Allen received praise from local educators for his sensitivity in handling juvenile cases and compassionate care of juvenile victims.  His keen investigative skills helped him excel in his next role as Detective in the Detective Division, where he led investigations of some of Greenwich’s most serious crimes.

Lieutenant Allen was promoted to Sergeant in 1994, assigned to the Training Section.  In this leadership role, he planned and coordinated training for the entire police department, and earned recognition such as Officer of the Month for his exceptional management of GPD’s recruitment efforts.

In 2003 Lieutenant Allen was promoted to Lieutenant in the Patrol Division, a role in which he continued to show exemplary police service.  Besides many departmental commendations for his work, Lieutenant Allen received numerous letters and calls from Greenwich residents expressing appreciation and gratitude for his compassionate help.

“Danny is a hometown officer who loves his community,” said Chief Heavey.  “With 43 years of service in Greenwich Police Department, he clearly sees public service as his calling.  We are extremely fortunate that Danny chose to spend his career in our Department and we wish him the very best in retirement.”
Lieutenant Allen will continue to serve the town as a Special Police Officer.
