GFD Promotes Veteran, Swears-In New Recruit

It was a joyous occasion last week inside the public safety complex on Bruce Place, as the Greenwich Fire Department celebrated the promotion of a decorated firefighter, and the swearing-in of a new recruit.

Mark Dawson, who has been with the department since 1999, was promoted to the Fire Marshal’s Division as a fire service inspector. Gary Benson, who comes to town after working as a volunteer firefighter in Stamford, was sworn-in by First Selectman Fred Camillo.

GPD Detectives Visit Greenwich High School

A classroom inside Greenwich High School turned into a working Crime Scene Investigations Unit earlier this week, as students were treated to a visit from two Greenwich detectives.

Det. First Grade Bill Weissauer and Det. Sgt. Pierangelo Corticelli, both a part of the GPD’s Forensics Section, first gave a powerpoint presentation to forensics students. They also visited the school’s Murder Mystery Club.
