The Greenwich Police Department’s Marine Section will be patrolling the waters of Long Island Sound to help ensure that paddlers and boaters can safely share the water this summer. If you have any questions or concerns, you can let them know by calling 203-622-8044 or 203-622-8004. 

Two Greenwich Police Officers were given Divisional Letters of Recognition last week. Captain Kraig Gray recognized Officers Yves Pierre and Shane Geery with the letters for their life-saving actions last week when they responded to a medical call of an overdose and used Narcan to bring the patient back to conciseness. The patient was then taken to Greenwich Hospital after GEMS arrived on the scene. “Greenwich Police Officers are both trained and equipped to provide advanced first aid to seriously ill and injured patients in a pre-hospital setting. The response of the Greenwich Police Officers, coupled with our partners’ Greenwich Emergency Medical Service expert paramedic services, has saved countless lives.” If you or a loved one needs substance abuse treatment, please call 1-800-563-4086 to talk to someone from Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and start the road to recovery.

The Greenwich Police Department has a 1964 Greenwich Police Car replica that won first for the third year in a row at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals that took place on July 10 – July 12. Retired Police Officer and Current Lead Public Safety Dispatcher Mark Wilson is in charge of keeping the car running.

Two weeks ago, the Greenwich Police Silver Shield Association recognized two officers. Officers Ryan Carino and Keith Scorca were recognized for their CPR performance on an unconscious patient who was able to gain consciousness due to their efforts. 

On July 10, Norwalk Police Department was able to recover one of the cars stolen from Greenwich, a Jeep Cherokee, and was able to arrest the involved thieves. Three juveniles were arrested for the theft, two of which, who were found in the car, were charged with Larceny, the third was found hiding behind a tree, and had an active “Take into Custody” order from a vehicle theft in May.
