Greenwich Police Range Technician Ferretti Retires after 40 Years in Law Enforcement

Tech Ferretti spent most of his policing career as a firearms instructor, first with the Port Chester Police Department and, since 2013, at Greenwich Police Dept’s Range on Steamboat Road.  By any measure, he has trained hundreds of the department’s officers on the proper use and handling of firearms and, more importantly, de-escalation techniques aimed at making deadly force a last resort.

Ferretti also taught many in the community valuable lessons about gun safety through his instruction at the Citizen’s Police Academy, a biennial program that gives Greenwich residents a first-hand overview of police operations.

The Department leveraged Tech Ferretti’s extensive training experience in planning the renovation of what’s now a state-of-the-art range in central Greenwich, which was completed in 2021.

Tech Ferretti has his sights set on three new adventures in retirement: landscaping, fitness training and nutrition.

Greenwich Police Dept is grateful to Tech Ferretti for his unwavering professionalism, dedication, and years of service to the Town of Greenwich.
