The Connecticut State Capitol is the focal point of state government. It is where over 250,000 persons visit each year on legislative business, for education, or tourism.
State Capitol Police Officers patrol a seventeen acre campus in Downtown Hartford that includes the State Capitol and Legislative Office Buildings, garages, supporting State offices, and the Old State House and campus located on Main Street. We work in partnership with the City of Hartford and the State Police Departments.
State Capitol Police Officers are highly trained, well equipped professionals with statewide jurisdiction…we place an emphasis on training and preparedness. Officers are provided with expertise and the most up-to-date equipment and technology available to do their job. Officers meet and maintain police officer certification standards, as mandated by state law and regulated by the Police Officer Standards and Training Council. The department has been nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since 2003. The department also earned state accreditation in 2006. Professionalism and pride are second nature at the State Capitol Police Department.
