On Thursday afternoon inside the lobby of the Public Safety Complex in downtown Greenwich, Det. Daniel Bucci of the Greenwich Police Department was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. First Selectman and Police Commissioner, Fred Camillo, administered the oath during the small ceremony for Bucci’s family.

Bucci is a graduate of the University of Central Florida, and was hired in Greenwich in 2011. In September of 2017, Bucci was promoted to Detective.

Over the years, he has served as a Field Training Officer, where he was responsible for training and mentoring the Department’s new officers.

Bucci is a Connecticut Police Officer Standards and Training (CPOSTC) certified instructor in defensive tactics, handcuffing, baton, and human trafficking. He is one of the Greenwich Police Department’s Women’s Self Defense program’s lead instructors, which teaches women in the community invaluable tactics to protect themselves in dangerous situations.

Bucci was awarded Officer of the Month and an Investigator’s Ribbon in March of 2019 for his work in solving a multi-jurisdictional ATM burglary spree. His investigation helped to close 12 additional cases across the state. Bucci has also received several recognitions for his involvement in other investigations and assistance at medical scenes.

“Sgt. Bucci is a mentor and leader for many of our younger officers at the Department and has been an example of service and fairness for them to follow,” said GPD Chief James Heavey.
