Worthy of Celebration
In October of last year, Allen Arrington III, Erica Rosario, Christopher Manjuck, and Kevin Ingraham were sworn in by Peter Tesei as new recruits. Earlier this week, the four graduated from the Connecticut police academy. Police Chief James Heavey, who attended the graduations ceremony, said, “all four are excited to return to Greenwich after their six months at the academy.”
Arrington was previously a corrections officer at Rikers Island in New York City. He received an associates degree in sports nutrition/fitness management and is certified in CPR and AED.
Rosario comes to the GPD from Rockville Center, N.Y. She previously worked as a member of the New York Police Department Auxiliary Police, and was the recipient of the Auxiliary Police Officer of the Year Award. She received her associates degree in criminal justice in 2015.
Manjuck grew up in Pound Ridge, N.Y., and attended Castleton University. He served as a Crisis Recovery Specialist for Rutland Mental Health Community Care Network. Manjuck’s father, Andy, served as a police officer in Greenwich for nearly 25 years.
Ingraham, who was born and raised in Greenwich and went to Greenwich High School, also recently earned the Cos Cob Volunteer Firefighter of the Year Award. Ingraham’s father, Bill, is a retired GFD lieutenant.
Each recruit underwent extensive vetting before heading to the State Police Academy in Meriden, Conn., for training.
