About Our Department

The Stamford Police Department is the sole, full-time law enforcement agency responsible for public safety in the city.  The Stamford Police Department consists of several different units, all falling within four Police Districts.  Due in large part to the efforts of the Police Department, the FBI has ranked Stamford as one of the safest cities in the nation for nine consecutive years.  The department is firmly committed to a collaborative, cooperative and interactive community policing philosophy.  District Commanders regularly attend meetings with neighborhood associations and community groups, and are committed to working with residents to identify and solve community issues before they become crime problems.

The success of the Stamford Police Department has also been achieved in part because the department has significantly enhanced its capacity to provide excellent police services by adding several specialty units, as well as acquiring advanced tactical and technological equipment. The department plans on significantly expanding forensics capabilities as well as implementing advanced tactical training to ensure that both visitors and Stamford residents continue to feel safe and secure in their neighborhoods and schools.

Some examples of the specialty units that contribute to our excellent patrol operations include the Criminal Investigations Unit, the Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit (NOC), the Special Victims Unit (SVU), the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC), the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Squad (CARS), the Canine Unit, the Motorcycle Unit, the Harbor Patrol Unit, the Neighborhood Impact Unit, and the Traffic Enforcement Unit.  The department also sponsors a Youth Mentoring program which includes, summer camps, basketball leagues, and a female Juvenile Police Commission.  These all operate and are designed to strengthen and reinforce positive police/youth relationships.
