Transparency Portal


As policing in the 21st century continues to evolve, the Connecticut State Police recognizes the importance of increased communication, transparency and accountability. Open and honest communication, especially concerning the use of force, is vital for building relationships and breaking down barriers. We have created this new transparency portal to provide convenient and accurate information to the public.

On this new site,, you will find multiple resources and reference materials including frequently asked questions surrounding the use of deadly force, annual use of force data, annual reports from the Internal Affairs Unit, applicable Connecticut General Statutes and relevant Connecticut State Police policies. Additionally, you will find press releases and videos (in compliance with state law) for officer-involved shooting investigations conducted by the Connecticut State Police. If you are seeking additional information regarding the above topics, please feel free to contact the Public Information Office at
