K-9 Unit 

Uniformed Division Commander Lieutenant David Moore

Detective Chris Nugent & Jaeger



In 2008 the Shelton Police Department reinstated the K-9 unit.  Officer Chris Nugent and his partner, Jaeger (which means hunter in German) attended the 14 week State Police K-9 Academy.  Jaeger was purchased from a breeder in New Hampshire due to the generosity of People's United Bank, who donated $2500.00 towards the purchase of Jaeger.  The new team graduated top in their class, beating out 9 other teams. 


The rigorous traning certifies the team in tracking (missing persons and crimimals), building search, evidence recovery, crowd control, suspect apprehension, and officer protection.  The team trains in all kinds of weather, terrains and buildings.
