GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich Police Officer Liza Zack is retiring from the force after 26 years of service to the community.
Zack was sworn in as Greenwich Police Officer in 1987. Her tenure included assignments the Patrol Division and the E911 Communications Center and serving as one of the first officers in the Domestic Violence Investigative Unit.
Zack comes from a family of first responders. Her father and brother serve as Greenwich Firefighters. Her husband, Ed Zack, is a retired Greenwich detective. And her children are currently active in the Emergency Medical profession.
During Zack's 26 years, the chief’s office received many notes and letters of recognition from citizens of Greenwich and executives of local institutions extolling Zack's professionalism, diplomacy, maturity, calming demeanor, finesse and poise.
“Officer Zack lived up to the department’s vision to improve the quality of life within Greenwich, while at the same time maintaining respect for individual rights and human dignity," Chief James Heavey said in a statement. "Liza really is a people person who was always ready to lend an ear to a friend or citizen in need. I am very proud to have served with Liza and wish her luck in her new career.”
In retirement Zack will continue to serve the Town of Greenwich as a volunteer Special Police Officer and will also take a new job as a civilian dispatcher at the Redding Police Department.
