The restitution, to be paid during probation also ordered for Kevin Fox on Friday, angered some union members who believed the officer should have been jailed.
Fox pleaded guilty to stealing $64,500 from the Silver Shield Association from 1996 to 2000.
He will be required to reimburse $19,500 and send his income tax reports to the probation department every six months to determine whether his weekly fine should be raised if his salary increases.
Fox, who works for a limousine service, retired from the Police Department in 2000.
The embezzlement was discovered after Fox's wife was pulled over for a motor vehicle violation and officers found she was driving a car rented with the Silver Shield Association credit card.
An investigation found that Fox, 47, also used union money to finance other personal expenses. John Meerbergen, Fox's lawyer, said his client regrets stealing the money and losing the trust of Greenwich police officers
