Three veteran Greenwich Police officers are scheduled to be promoted next week as the department fills vacancies created by recent retirements.

The promotional ceremony is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5 in the lobby of police headquarters, 11 Bruce Pl.

Before the promotional ceremony, the department will be swearing in a new patrol officer, Brian Andronaco. The Wilton resident is a graduate of Henry Abbott Technical High School and studied justice and law administration at Western Connecticut State University and Johnson and Wales University.

Andronaco, who holds certifications from the Wilton Police Explorers and completed independent study courses with FEMA, has worked in the family business of Andronaco Excavating and Anderson's Septic Service, Thommens Truck Sales and the Village Market in Wilton.

Andronaco's swearing-in ceremony will be held at the Greenwich Town Hall in the Town Hall Meeting Room at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 3. He will attend a six-month police academy course and complete an 18-month probationary period.
