On Monday, after young Patrick O’Connor’s swearing in as the newest member of the Greenwich Police family, Retired Lt. Rick Cochran was sworn in as a member of the Special Police force.

Chief Heavey introduced retired Lt. Cochran, who retired on June 1.  “For a number of years he was my boss,” Chief Heavey said.

“Thank you for your deep commitment to finding a cure for ALS and paying a tribute to the late Police Officer Roger Petrone,” said Police Commissioner Peter Tesei.

“You’ve accomplished many things in your career in the police department, but the testament to the man was what you’ve done to help someone facing a serious, debilitating illness,” Tesei said. “Not only did you stand with him to the end, continue to find a cure through the ride ALS. That’s just a tremendous passionate thing to do.”

The First Selectman then swore Lt. Cochran in as a special police officer.
