The men and women of this department are committed professionals who provide high quality service to our residents and visitors on a daily basis.

With 9 civilians and 29 officers, the men and women of our department patrol and provide a wide array of services to a diverse city of 3.1 square miles and 10,000 residents.

The City of Groton is home to the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics, the Pfizer pharmaceutical company and the Avery Point Campus of the University of Connecticut.

We provide patrol services by foot, vehicle, boat and bicycle. Significant crimes are investigated by investigators from the detective and youth unit in conjunction with our area law enforcement partners.

During the fiscal year 2019, the department responded to 16,039 calls for service, conducted 403 criminal investigations, made 498 criminal arrests, conducted 55 non-criminal investigations and investigated 162 motor vehicle accidents. This activity does not include the hundreds of interactions our officers made to comfort and assist members of our community.

From time to time, we recruit people from all walks of life with the highest personal integrity to join our department.
