About the K9 Unit

The Fairfield Police K9 Unit was established in 2010,  after the approval from the Chief of Police, First Selectman and Board of Police Commissioners. The K9 Unit does not replace a Police Officer, but serves as a valuable tool in combating and deterring crime.  It is often the determining factor in conducting a search or achieving a peaceful arrest. 

Use of Police Canines

The K9 Unit may be used for the following incidents:
  • Building searches
  • Tracking and searching for missing persons, suspects or evidence
  • Apprehension of criminal suspects
  • Narcotic raids and searches
  • Crowd control for violent and/or unruly crowds
  • Handler & Officer Protection
Funding & Donations:

The Fairfield Police Department K-9 Unit is entirely funded by corporate and private donations from the community.
