Greenwich Police Lt. Eric Scorca was recognized Wednesday as the Greenwich Police Department’s Officer of the Month.
Chief James Heavey recognized Scorca, a crisis negotiator, for successfully getting an armed suicidal man to put down his weapons and surrender to police during an incident last month.
In addition, Scorca’s leadership in this area was instrumental to the successful resolution of two other incidents where people with knives were threatening to do harm to themselves, the chief said.
During the ceremony, Scorca praised the officers under his command for their contributions and accepted the award on their behalf.
