The Town of Greenwich is celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Greenwich Police Department in 2021. Chief James Heavey and the Department are marking this milestone by welcoming the community and longtime partners, including local businesses, to partake in several events throughout 2021. The theme of the year will be “Honoring Our Past and Embracing Our Future,” with the funds raised to support the Greenwich Police Department’s Scholarship Fund, a non-profit 501 (c) (3), which grants financial assistance to the children of active Greenwich Police Officers, who qualify by ability and character, for undergraduate studies.
“We are proud that the Town of Greenwich Police Department has earned the reputation of being a well-trained and responsive professional organization over the past 125 years,” said Chief of Police James Heavey in a release. “We strive for excellence and have demonstrated a sustained commitment of service to the public. I am very appreciative to be a member of this family – past and present – and I am equally pleased that we can celebrate this milestone together. We look forward to the history we will write together in the years ahead.”
“As a police department, it’s important for us to celebrate, especially now. It’s been a different year due to COVID-19 and the many other stressors police officers are dealing with every day,”
Heavey said. “We want the residents of Greenwich to join us in paying tribute and recognizing our Officers and staff who strive to keep Greenwich safe for everyone.”
The Greenwich Police Department is asking for the community’s support of the Greenwich Police Department’s Scholarship Fund. Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable for the future of our children. The Greenwich Police Department Scholarship Fund,
incorporated in December of 1962, was granted tax-exempt status under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code in November 1963. To donate, http://bit.ly/GPDSFdonate
In 1963, three scholarships were awarded, which represented 80% of the
fund’s available resources at that time. Now almost 60 years later,
there are approximately 20 applicants each year, supporting both
college boarders and half scholarships to college commuters. They must
be enrolled as full-time students and maintain an academic GPA of 2.75
The fund is governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of four
individuals whose roles in the community ensure the Board’s
self-perpetuation. These individuals are the Chief of Police, the
Greenwich High School Headmaster, a Town Attorney, and a highly
reputable and concerned volunteer from Greenwich’s business community.
The Office of the Chief of Police is responsible for the day-to-day
administration of its activities. Scholarship awards, however, are
awarded after review and a vote by the Board.
