Brian R. Perusse, 21, became a police officer at a swearing-in ceremony this morning at Town Hall.
With his parents and sister looking on, Perusse took an oath to uphold state and local laws and the U.S. Constitution, administered by First Selectman Jim Lash.
Perusse's hiring brings the department to its maximum force of 157 sworn officers, said Sgt. Jeffrey Moran of the Greenwich Police Training Division. The starting salary is $45,723.
