Giving Back To Hartford Youth, Police Departments Statewide Attend ‘Law Enforcement Day’ At Camp Courant

Five- and six-year-old campers squealed and giggled as they were licked by Kenny, a golden retriever who happens to be a member of the Darien Police Department’s K-9 Unit.

“I like it because the dogs are really fluffy, and they’re really big,” Alejandro, 5, said.

Officers chuckled at the scene unfolding at Hartford’s Camp Courant as part of its annual Law Enforcement Day on Wednesday. “Let them think they’re cute and fluffy,” one policeman said, as barks sounded from other police dogs.

About 25 police departments from across Connecticut descended on the open fields and sports complexes, eager to meet with 600 Hartford youth, all of whom are eligible to attend the summer day camp in Farmington for free.
