On Tuesday afternoon Greenwich Police welcomed their newest officer in a swearing in ceremony in the public safety complex’s John Margenot Atrium.
Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo, who serves as the Town’s Police Commissioner, swore in Officer Joshua Weinstock, and Chief James Heavey presented Weinstock with his badge.
Heavey said he hoped that when the pandemic is over, the police will be able to have one large recognition ceremony to celebrate all the new officers.
Officer Weinstock is from Smithtown, NY. He is married and has two children.
He graduated from Kings Park High School in 2004 and graduated from SUNY Binghamton in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing.
Officer Weinstock later earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Long Island University in 2013.
Officer Weinstock first became a police officer in 2017 and worked for the Wallingford Police Dept before coming to Greenwich.
Prior to becoming a police officer, he was employed as a Registered Nurse, during which time he held multiple supervisory positions.
He is also certified as an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR).
“Thank you for having me. I’m excited to be here,” Weinstock said. “I hope this is the last new job I’ll ever have to start.”
Weinstock will be required to complete a twelve-month probationary period beginning immediately.
