RIP: Trooper First Class Walter Greene, Thank You for your Service He passed Thursday 5.31.2018
CSP has lost a special family member.
Trooper First Class Walter Greene passed away in the line of duty following a courageous battle with cancer as a result of his response and service in support of New York City in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack.
Governor Dannel P. Malloy directed all U.S. and state flags in CT to be lowered at half-staff in honor of Greene.
Greene was a member of the 101st Training Troop and most recently was assigned to the Traffic Services Unit.
“Our hearts are with the family of Trooper First Class Walter Greene – a man who dedicated his life’s work to protecting the people of Connecticut and our country,” Governor Malloy said. “He is a hero and passionately served our nation in the Marine Corps before joining the Connecticut State Police. Men like Trooper First Class Greene personify what it means to give back to the community and to dedicate one’s life work in the name of others.”
Walter has been a Connecticut State Trooper for approximately 29 years and has dedicated 4 years to the United States Marines as a Scout Sniper. He has trained many state and local police officers to become certified police motorcycle operators. He has always gone the extra mile to support and train any motor cop who was looking to fulfill their dreams. Walter is an active, talented rider and well respected in the police motorcycle community at both state and local levels. He has helped organize many charity rides, assisted other agencies with their motorcycle needs, and has been an important part of Special Olympics. Walter has always stepped up to the plate.
He was assigned to Troops A and G during his career, as well as the Statewide Cooperative Crime Control Task Force.
Flags will remain at half-staff in his honor until further notice.
