Praise for Greenwich Chief

By Harry Fisher

I have known our current chief of police, Jim Heavey, since he was a patrolman and volunteer fireman.  I also know his wonderful wife and kids well.  I have always found Jim to be an honest, forthright and smart person.  His kids are well raised and very respectful and successful.  I also have known most of the chiefs of police of Greenwich in my lifetime, both good and not so good.  Jim ranks among the best that I have known.  If you want to know him and the entire department better,  I urge you to attend the Citizens Police Academy when it next becomes available.  

The Academy is a multi-week program in the evenings that focuses on all aspects of the department.  One interacts with a diverse group of officers and leaders of the department and gains a valuable understanding of its role in the community.   My daughter and I did so and I learned more than I thought I knew about the police and their tremendous challenges.
