The Greenwich Police Department, acting without fear or favor, will strive to provide superior law enforcement and public services in cooperation with its community. The Department will actively promote an environment that encourages independent judgment and allows its employees to attain the highest levels of professional achievement.
The Greenwich Police Department is under the responsibility of the First Selectman in his role as Police Commissioner. Operational leadership and direction lies with the Chief of Police who is charged with the protection of life and property, the preservation of public peace, the prevention and detection of crime, the apprehension of offenders and the enforcement of state and local laws and ordinances, as well as a myriad of calls for service that the Police Department handles on a daily basis. In fiscal year 2015-2016, the Greenwich Police responded to 49,179 calls for service.
The Police Department continues to present its unmatched level of services both as a law enforcer and a community service provider. Our crime clearance rates are above the national averages (in almost every instance - well above) in all mandatory Uniform Crime Report categories.
The Town’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is housed in the Police Department in support of a unified command response by all departments of the Town of Greenwich. Several exercises have been conducted to prepare the community’s leadership in the event of a disaster and the EOC has been utilized for several actual weather-related responses.
The Police Department continues to serve the entire municipality by hosting meetings within our Public Safety Complex for various public and private groups. This greater access has served to further demystify the Police Department and its members to the public while furthering our community policing initiatives and public/private partnerships.
The Police Department held its Fourth Annual “Police Day” Open House in May of 2016. During this fiscal year we ran two full Citizen’s Police Academy classes and four Women’s self-defense programs. The Department also held its third Youth Citizen’s Police Academy Camp attended by forty-two (42) campers as part of a new middle school Explorer program supported by the Boy Scouts of America which doubled in the number of previous year’s campers.
Crime continues to be at low rates and is absolutely an integral part of the desirability to live in Greenwich.
