A Message from the Greenwich Police Dept.

The Greenwich Police Department shares with the community in the outrage at brutal acts conducted by police officers against the public we are all sworn to protect.  Those acts, and those who perpetuate them, are not who we are as guardians of this community.  We unequivocally believe that the preservation of life is thesacred obligation of every police officer.  We also fundamentally believe that the protection of Constitutional Rights is an absolute duty of each one of us.  We subscribe to the principle that we police the community in partnership with those we serve.  We recognize that many in the public are seeking change in the way policing is conducted across the nation. GPD is always pursuing ways to improve itself and we will continue to dialogue with our community, others in our profession and our legislative representatives for positive change that reinforces our commitment to protecting everyone in the community.During this time of discussion about policing, we wanted to share with you some of the practices, initiatives and policies your Greenwich Police Department has in place.
