Mission Statement

Police Department Building


The Greenwich Police Department, acting without fear or favor, will strive to provide superior law enforcement and public services in cooperation with its community. The Department will actively promote an environment that encourages independent judgment and allows its employees to attain the highest levels of professional achievement.

Core Values

Service – We recognize that our chosen profession requires us to put the public's welfare, our peers and subordinates, and the organization before ourselves.

Respect – We value all persons; recognize that our diversity strengthens us and celebrates it; remember our past and the sacrifices others made on our behalf; and willfully subjugate ourselves to the rule of law.  

Courage – We will always face difficult situations with confidence, determination, and bravery. We shall never shrink from the responsibility to do what is right because of physical fear, lack of will, or mental trepidation. 

Fairness – We must always act in a just, ethical, equitable, honest, and transparent way, never displaying favoritism or allowing prejudice or undue influence to color our professional decisions.  

Diligence – We will selflessly apply ourselves in duty to the community and devotion to each other with persistent industry and steadfast vigor.

Domestic Violence Awareness & Domestic Abuse Services 

DV wo YWCA

Domestic Violence is the most reported violent crime in Greenwich. 1 in 4 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. Many of us know someone who has been a victim, and the Greenwich Police Department and the YWCA Greenwich will continue to work together to stop Domestic Violence. 

If you know anyone suffering domestic violence, please help end the silence.  Report it if you see it.  We can be reached at 911 for emergencies or at 203-622-8004 for non-emergencies. 

The YWCA of Greenwich is the only state-designated provider of domestic abuse services in Greenwich, with staff licensed to provide a variety of victim services, including immediate crisis intervention to help victims cope with physical, emotional, and psychological trauma from abuse. Please visit the YWCA of Greenwich Domestic Abuse Services for more information about their services.   

The services are free and confidential.

Protecting Children On-Line

cyber tip lineThe Greenwich Police will always work diligently to protect vulnerable members of our community from child predators. We urge parents to remain vigilant and monitor their children’s online activity and who they engage with through phone, text, email, and social media. An excellent resource a parent can use to help educate themself or their children about online threats is by visiting the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website.  

NetSmartz is NCMEC's online safety education program. It provides age-appropriate videos and activities to help teach children to be safer online and to become more aware of potential online risks, and empower them to help prevent victimization by making safer choices on and offline.
