The Granby Police Department welcomed a new team member when Officer Chris Dufresne was sworn in on Jan. 31.

Dufresne started his police career in 2002 with the Enfield Police Department, where he served for more than  20 years before retiring. During his career he was not only an outstanding police officer, he was also a highly respected K-9 Officer, winning numerous awards including the region’s United States Police K-9 Competition in 2022. He and his partner were highly decorated. They apprehended many dangerous criminals, found missing people and were always seen at community events.

Dufresne is from the Granby area and waited for a position to open in the department so he could become part of the Granby team.
