The Greenwich Police Department (GPD) encourages its citizenry to recognize the Department's exemplary performance. The Citizen’s Appreciation Program serves to identify personnel that has made a positive impact on their lives. A simple "thank you" or kind comment can often go a long way to elevate employee morale and motivation.

Submit Appreciation

Citizens wishing to express their appreciation of a GPD employee can fill out a Citizen’s Appreciation Form.  The Appreciation Form will be sent directly to the Office of the Chief of Police.

If you prefer to mail your appreciation form, print the Citizen’s Appreciation Form (PDF) and mail it to:

The Appreciation Form can also be dropped off the form at the Sergeant’s desk at Police headquarters. Your comments will be shared with the employee. The employee’s supervisor and the Chief of Police will also have the opportunity to review the submission before it becomes a permanent entry in the employee’s personnel file.
