GPD Officer of the Month — Officer Robert Ferretti

Officer of the Month
August, 2012
Officer Robert Ferretti

In late August, a central Greenwich pharmacy reported that a suspect had just passed a counterfeit bill in the downtown area. Officer Ferretti was assigned to patrol the Riverside section of town and took it upon himself to be watchful for the suspect at his local pharmacies. Officer Ferretti located a subject matching the description and watched his movements before approaching detaining the suspect. Officer Ferretti quickly developed probable cause that his suspect, and a co-conspirator, had just passed another counterfeit bill at a Riverside pharmacy.
Officer Ferretti’s keen observation resulted in: the arrest of a wanted criminal, the discovery of an unreported crime, the positive identification of an accomplice, the recovery of a facsimile firearm, but most importantly these suspects have been positively linked to a major counterfeiting investigation in other jurisdictions.

“Although many officers from the Department would participate in this investigation, Officer Ferretti’s initial stop was the key which insured the apprehension of the suspect. Officer Robert Ferretti is commended for his quick action and vigilance.”
Chief James Heavey
