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.
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.

Other Greenwich Police Information
The Greenwich Police Department is under the responsibility of the First Selectman in his role as Police Commissioner. Operational leadership and direction lie with the Chief of Police, who is charged with the protection of life and property, the preservation of public peace, the prevention and detection of crime, the apprehension of offenders, and the enforcement of state and local laws and ordinances, as well as a myriad of calls for service that the Police Department handles daily. In the fiscal year 2021 to 2022, the Greenwich Police responded to 41,000 calls for service.
The Police Department continues to present its unmatched level of service as a law enforcer and a community service provider. Our crime clearance rates are above the national averages (in almost every instance - well above) in all mandatory Uniform Crime Report categories.
The Police Department has many events where the police and the public can meet in a non-law enforcement setting.
Police Day Open House, Citizen’s Police Academy, Coffee with a Cop, Stuff-A-Cruiser, and several other outreach programs are offered by the Department to bring the police and the community together for dialogue and fellowship.
Emergency Operations Center
The Town’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is housed in the Police Department, supporting a unified command response by all the Town of Greenwich departments. Several exercises have been conducted to prepare the community’s leadership in a disaster, and the EOC has been utilized for several actual weather-related responses.
The Police Department continues to serve the entire municipality by hosting meetings within our Public Safety Complex for various public and private groups. This greater access has further demystified the Police Department and its members to the public while furthering our community policing initiatives and public/private partnerships.
Crime continues to be at low rates and is an integral part of the desirability to live in Greenwich.
