The Granby Police Department was established in 1959. The Department is responsible for the preservation of the public peace, the prevention of crime, and the apprehension of criminal violators. The Department serves to regulate traffic, investigate motor vehicle collisions and enforce the laws of the State of Connecticut and the municipal ordinances of the Town of Granby.

Additionally, the Granby Police Department acts as the recognized First Responder to requests for emergency medical assistance within the Town of Granby, pending the arrival of the appropriate emergency medical service provider. Patrol vehicles are equipped with an Automatic External Defibrillator. All officers are at least certified by the State of Connecticut as Emergency Medical Responders and many have advanced certification as Emergency Medical Technicians.

The Police Department is staffed by:

16 sworn officers - Chief, Captain, 4 Sergeants, 9 Patrol Officers, and 1 Detective.
8 civilian dispatchers - 4 part time and 4 full time.
2 support staff - records clerk and administrative assistant.

The Granby Police Department participates with the towns of Avon, Bloomfield, Canton, Farmington, Simsbury, Suffield, Windsor, and Windsor Locks in the North Central Municipal Regional Emergency Services Team. This coalition of police agencies provides the opportunity for Granby personnel to expand their interests into such specialized areas of law enforcement as: Accident Reconstruction, Narcotics Investigation, Crisis/Hostage Negotiations, and SWAT. As a result of these specialties, a cadre of trained personnel are available as needed to assist or supplement the Town of Granby during critical incidents.


The mission of the Granby Police Department is to enhance a high quality of life, striving to meet the expectations of our citizens by providing fair, consistent and professional police services to our community.


Excellence in Policing – a journey in partnership with the community.
