K-9 Unit 


Officer Dan Loris & Stryker



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 Loris & K-9 Strykerofficer protection.  Jaeger retired in 2014 when his partner was promoted to Detective. 


In 2014 a new K-9 was purchased and Stryker has partnered up with Officer Dan Loris.    The pair began the State Police K-9 Academy in February of 2015 and will be ready for patrol in May of 2015
