January 12, 2012
GreenwichTime.com: The Greenwich Police Department is honoring three service members as officers of the month for their heroic actions in saving a group of fishermen stranded off the coast of Rye, New York, in October 2011.
Sgt. James Bonney and marine officers Josh Repik and Francesco DiPietro responded October 13 to a request from the Rye Police Department, using a Greenwich police boat to assist in the rescue of 2 men and a woman stranded in a rising tide on a rock approximately 50 yards off shore. Despite a stiff easterly wind that caused large swells to crash over the rock, the officers were able to get all 3 to safety.
