The Connecticut K-9 Olympics is entering its 29th year. The event is a day long competition involving K-9 units from local police departments, CT State Police, and Department of Corrections. Teams are evaluated during a competition in an arena style setting. Areas of competition include, but are not limited to, obedience, obstacles, building search, marksmanship, and an apprehension K-9 drill.

Also available will be static displays of equipment used by law enforcement to include present day and historical Police vehicles and weapon systems. This will include specialty vehicles such as the State Police B.A.T. (Breath Analysis Testing) vehicle, Department of Corrections CERT team, narcotic and bomb detection dogs, and a variety of other police and animal related services.

Money raised through the sales of shirts and food, and from donations, is returned to local charities. This year money raised will go to the Hometown Foundation (SPECIAL OLYMPICS), "CHIPS" Program, Shriners Children's Burn Centers and other "Police related" charities to be announced prior to this year's event.
