Working for the Greenwich Police Department requires skill, education, and passion. 

"I really love being a police officer. It's all I ever wanted to do since I was a yon kid," said John Browne of the Greenwich Police department. 

John Browne loves police work so much that he retired for two days and is now the newest member of the Greenwich Police Department. 

"I was a police officer for 26 years in Danbury. 13 years as a police officer, four years as a sergeant, seven or eight years as a lieutenant, and the past seven years, I was assigned as a commanding officer in the community policing unit," said Browne. 

After being sworn in by Police Commissioner First Selectman Peter Tesei, Browne signed his Oath and will begin training. 

"He already knows how to be a police officer so we aren't going to touch very much on that. We are going to go Greenwich rules, Town orientation because he usn't from the area, and that will be four weeks of training from him," said Training Sgt. Debora Vesciglio. 

Browne's prior police experience will expedite training time. A new officer begins by spending 26 weeks training at the Connecticut Police Academy.

"Then they come back after they graduate and they spend 12 weeks with a training officer on the road and they learn everything," said Vesciglio. 

But he will have to do one thing the same as all new officers. 

"He's going to get an assignment to direct traffic on Greenwich Avenue like al new junior officers," said Vesciglio. 

"I look forward to a long career here," said Browne.
