The Greenwich Lions Club held the annual Dr. John Clarke Police Award reception to honor the exceptional work performed by Officers of the Greenwich Police Department. The Clarke Award is one of the Lions Club's premier honors. The Greenwich Lions was charted 100 years ago and is named after Dr. John Clarke, a founder and the first president of the Greenwich Lions. Dr. Clarke served as a medical adviser to GPD during his distinguished career. The award pays tribute to him as it recognizes the outstanding service of a member of the Greenwich Police Department. The Chief of Police makes the selection each year.
The 2022 recipients are Officers Allen Arrington and Ryan Daly. The Officer's assignment has them investigating financial crimes, identity theft, and related fraud investigations.
Their investigations have led to over 70 felony arrests and several firearms recovered. Many suspects they arrest have criminal histories with aggravated assault, robbery, and weapons offenses or are wanted fugitives. Their investigations also identified numerous victims of identity theft and assisted law enforcement agencies across the United States with their identity theft and fraud investigations.
The outstanding and excellent work performed by Officers Arrington and Daly has been proactive in detecting, apprehending, and disrupting criminal activity in the Town of Greenwich.
Their efforts have increased community satisfaction and have made more effective and efficient use of Greenwich Police Officers in the central business district.
