Since canines joined law enforcement’s
ranks in 1907 they have consistently proven their
worth. These K-9 officer helps to deter criminal activity, helps in
the detection of illegal drugs, helps support a variety of functions in
the day to day operations of the department. The H.P.D. K-9 Unit is
also an important part of our community outreach efforts in our local
schools, businesses, and our community.
The Hartford Police Department established
our K-9 Program through funding from our Quad Graphics and other local
businesses, donations from local civic organizations, through coin drop
boxes in local gas stations, and through countless individuals who
generously gave to make it a reality.
Our program is unique not only because of
the sheer number of community members that came together to support the
initiative, but also because we were able to completely cover our
program’s start-up costs for the dog, the training, the specialized
equipment, and to purchase the special purpose vehicle for the program at
a total cost of $0 to Hartford Taxpayers!

offset our ongoing operational expenses for the K-9 Program you can
